spotlight on – John Keatley

Spotlight on October 6, 2010 5:07 pm

John Keatley is based in Seattle, and though i haven’t yet had the chance to work with him, every time i get a promo or see his work i have to email him like a big nerd to tell him how great it is. he must think im a bit of a wackadoo, but you know how it is when pretty much every shot that someone makes is fantastic and you just wanna shout it from the rooftops.

so i waited for a shoot in Seattle and nothing would come. and then he photographed Annie Leibovitz and i thought damn, that’s scary and great and what a fantastic fucking photo. so i had to email him. and still waiting, no seattle shoots.. and then he shot Palin for the book cover and for some reason all of these subway riders would read it and the cover would be in my face or i would walk by B&N and there it was, whispering “come on, you know you wanna email me and tell me how great i am! i am even made this lady look good” so im a fan, his work is terrific and i wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to hire him – hell, he is practically on my speed dial.. also, he is making videos during and they are exactly what a behind the scenes video should be. i mean, this guy has some kahunas, he even got this dude to wear a kitty litter turtleneck.

check out his portfolio here.
