In the past, we’ve shared the work of both John Keatley and Zack Arias. Today, we have for you a collaboration between the two to promote an upcoming class on Arias’ DEDPXL website that takes a look at the work, life and gear of Keatley, a Seattle-based advertising and celebrity photographer.

At five and a half minutes, the video is a trailer of sorts for Keatley’s class. In it, we get a behind-the-scenes look at some of Keatley’s recent assignments, take a peek into the challenges he’s faced along the way and the gear he uses to capture his signature images -- a topic he rarely talks about.

Whether or not you have any intentions on picking up the class from DEDPXL, the short video is an excellent little inspiration piece that’s sure to be a solid kickstarter for any weekend assignments. If you would like to pick up the class, you can do so on DEDPXL for $50.
