VII Photo Agency: The Canon Interviews
January 11, 2012
The VII Photo Agency derives its name from the number of founding photojournalists who, in September 2001, formed this collectively owned agency.
Designed from the outset to be an efficient, technologically enabled distribution hub for some of the world's finest photojournalism, VII has been responsible for creating and relaying to the world many of the images that define the turbulent opening years of the 21st century.
The Canon Digital Learning Center sat down with a few of VII's current members to talk about how they use EOS cameras and lenses to capture powerful images in some of the world's most remote and challenging locations.
In these interview videos, you'll learn how Antonin Kratochvil achieves the unique look and feel to his images, how the durability of the EOS 5D Mark II allowed Marcus Bleasdale to keep shooting even after his camera fell into a lake, how Franco Pagetti's sense that the camera and photographer become allow him to capture the emotion found in his images, how John Stanmeyer captures images in complex natural light situations with the EOS 5D Mark II and much more.
