LONG BEACH, Calif., June 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson America has been awarded Telly Awards for excellence in Videography and Cinematography. The award-winning video – "Epson Legacy Fibre Paper and Photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders" – features renowned photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders describing his work as a portrait photographer, the inspiration for his famous List Portraits, and why he chose Epson Legacy Fibre paper for his recent exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography1. The full video can be seen on Epson's Legacy Paper website – https://epson.com/pro-photo-legacy-papers.
"This video captures Epson's dedication to the old world craftmanship of fine art papers married with the latest advances in technology for creative professionals like Timothy Greenfield-Sanders," said Dan (Dano) Steinhardt, marketing manager, Epson America. "It's an honor to receive additional Telly Awards for our work illustrating how professional photographers incorporate Epson products to tell their inspirational stories, and we want to thank the visual arts community for this recognition."
With the world of online video rapidly evolving, the Telly Award is one of the most sought-after awards by industry leaders – honoring the very best films, videos and commercials. On average, the Telly Awards receives 13,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents annually. The winners represent the finest work from the most distinguished advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators and corporate video departments.
In the Epson Legacy Fibre Paper video, photographer Greenfield-Sanders discusses his portrait photography and the relevance of the printed photograph as a way to step out of the world of digital imagery that is seen every day. Greenfield-Sanders finally found the D-max he was looking for in a matte fine art paper with the Epson Legacy Fibre paper, along with a beautiful way to showcase colors that are very natural and specific to the person he is photographing.
"We are extremely proud to once again recognize outstanding productions in the film and video industry," said Linda Day, executive director of the Telly Awards. "The quality of work submitted each season continues to exceed our expectations."
