Local photographers give back to inner city art students - Week III
Quincey Jones - NOT the musician, but rather the professional photographer is in the line-up for People Involved in Motivating Our Students Higher (PIMOSH) for photo-shoot #3 - Monday, July 14, 2014.
In New Haven, however, there are a group of photographers who want to make sure arts education students have a professional portfolio when they graduate in August, and Quincy Jones is up next.
On Monday, July 14th Mr. Jones will meet the next generation of Drama Queens and Kings in their own environment. While it was only 5 years ago that he fell in love with the camera, he reports loving to shoot subjects but is more in love with the finished picture/product - once it's edited
His mostexciting moment was filming French Montana in concert up close & personal, and the worst memory includes shooting a lightening bolt that showed up blurry and found trouble capturing it again.
Motivation, usually comes from those closest to him (Phil Blount & P Wlyd), and they are also the source of his inspiration and crafting his timeless slogan is ... I shoot people for a living.
Local photographers, like all other artists are celebrated today for the joy of giving back. Inner city arts education students are better beause of the People Involved in Motivating Our Students Higher (PIMOSH).
