Veterans, please join photographer Jim Reiman in a series of intensive photography workshops as he introduces the tools, techniques—and what can be explored–through a wide range of weekly portrait focused projects.

This five week series of four-hour workshops is designed for all levels of experience, beginning to advanced, and invites veterans to explore tools and processes in creating their own photographic imagery. Participants will work in studio, digital lab and environmental settings. The series concludes with a personal project and portfolio review. A special showing of selected works from each participant will be exhibited at USF in Fall 2018.

James Reiman is a Tampa-based photographer, designer and educator. Reiman’s personal photographic work often involves themes of masculine iconography, geek culture and science. He also works commercially with a wide variety of clients ranging from actors, models, cosplayers, filmmakers and companies in need of photography, video and design work. He received his BFA in photography/digital imaging from Central Washington University in 2005 and his MFA from the University of South Florida in 2009. James Reiman is currently the lead photography/video instructor at The Art institute of Tampa. Learn more about Jim Reiman at jamesreimanphoto.com.

I am pleased to announce that three film projects that I have been working on for Lima Films have been officially selected to be part of the Urban Action Showcase in New York City this November.

Lawless Law (2017).  Director of Photography & Editor.  Short Film Directed by Robert Déon.
GONE
Gone (2017).  Editor.  Short Film Directed by Gerard Lima.
Screen Shot 2017-09-16 at 10.24.37 AM.png
We Work In The Dark (2017).  Editor.  Directed by Jimmy Manfredy.

The Urban Action Showcase is on a mission to change the stereotypical way that People of Color are portrayed in mainstream media by presenting and promoting Heroic images that reflect Multicultural images and interests. The UASE was created out of concern for the lack of positive Heroic role models of color in the Action film genre. We are trying to play a part in the shifting of the common and unflattering portrayal of minorities in entertainment. We do this in several ways from encouraging the craft through our UAS International Action Film Festival platform competitions which boasts the Cinemax Action Short Film Competition, by exposing previous works that represent positively and teaching all necessary skills of the trade through our Action Expo and Awards platforms.

Tickets can be purchased at the Urban Action Showcase website.
