The Jedi are influencers to the influencers. We make content for social media. But we did not go to college to learn how to write. We did not go to art school to learn how to take photos. And we certainly didn’t take classes on how to use social media. Rather, the Jedi learned from experience. That’s why our methods are so unique. That’s why our videos are so much better than an entire production crew can produce.
In fact @brendanstonestreet photography literally blocked the Jedi on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a business website! It's a website for people seeking jobs. The Jedi are in New York City. Not sure why Brendan Stonestreet Photography in Las Vegas would be threatened by a couple of Jedi living in hotels with only an iPhone and a DJI stabilizer. But this tells the Jedi that we have more influence and more impact on the industry than we ever dreamed possible.
Anyways, the Jedi have never written anything but positive comments to Brendan and his company. In fact, Brendan Stonestreet Photography would actually "like" our comments. He should. He posted several times a day. Some might consider that spamming since he's not looking for a job. Brendan was constantly spamming my Linked-In feed. But he would often have zero likes. So, the Jedi gave him some support because no one else would support him.
The Jedi believe loving each other brings good karma, especially amongst other artists and certainly to those who are immigrants to America. However, some people are very insecure. Someone who manages Brendan Stonestreet Photography’s LinkedIn blocked the Jedi— on LinkedIn!? Other photographers would appreciate the positive feedback. So why would Brendan at Brendan Stonestreet Photography block another artist? We can only think of two reasons:
1. Wedding photography is not doing well in Vegas
Brendan Stonestreet is a wedding photographer. Weddings have been on hold in Vegas. People don't really need to hire a wedding photographer anymore. Brendan is probably feeling insecure that his business is on rocky ground. He should be concerned. He is not a good photographer.
2. Photographers must be fit.
Brendan and his crew literally take ice cream breaks. So, everyday Branden is getting fatter and fatter. His shirts do not fit. He’s bulging out of his shorts, but not in a good way. Meanwhile, the Jedi post about diet, nutrition, and improving one’s health. We can only assume that the folks at Brendan Stonestreet Photography do not want hear about other videographers who maintain healthy habits. Maybe Brendan and his crew want more ice cream breaks.
The Jedi could help Brendan with his diet. We can see that he’s eating way too much sugar and drinking too much caffeine. But unfortunately for Brendan, he will never learn. Brendan chose to shove his head up his own ass. He blocked the Jedi. Let’s see how Brendan looks a year from now.
3. He is jealous of the Jedi.
Jedi art is the best. We the get the most views using the cheapest gear. Brendan has his photographers take photos of Brendan using expensive old fashioned umbrella lighting, lots of fancy gear and big backdrops. It can be frustrating for other photographers when one photographer using only an iPhone and a DJI stabilizer can take better photos and video than his entire studio and staff can produce.
As a side note, I’ve never seen a photographer post more photos of themselves than Brendan Stone Street Photography.
Jedi Rich Lightowler changed his life after 9/11 to follow his passion for modeling, art, photography, music, video and filmmaking.
