On March 13, 2020  APA NY Chairman, Travis Keyes, hosted our first APA “Open Talk” online group chat so we could begin to come together as a community and share ideas on how to get through this turbulent time.

We will be hosting these every week.

The next OPEN TALK is scheduled for March 26, 4pm Pacific.

Kezi Ban 

Photographer & Board Member @American Photographic Artists NY

KEZI BAN is a commercial photographer and director who is represented by Blonde Artists. She uses a mixture of irony, humor, seduction, and empowerment as a baseline for her work. Crossing between reality and conceptual, she invites the viewer to take a closer look at what is going on in the scene, moving or still. Within the past 6 years, she has worked with creative agencies and major brands such as Puma, Adidas, Net-A-Porter, HBO, Higher Dose, and We Are Social. Her work has also appeared in Elle, Style, Glamour Mag, Vogue, and O Magazine.

Jessica Hirsch    

Founder & Photographer @Cheat Day Eats & Your Room Service

Jessica Hirsch is the founder and CEO of CheatDayEats which is a lifestyle brand and production company focused on food, travel, and fitness. Her look, style and fun personality combined with her unique content creation are not the only things that set her head & shoulders above the crowded world of influencers. Jessica’s high quality photography and videography landed her on the Sony’s Alpha Collective Team - a group of the finest photographers in the World.

Megan Allen 

Photographer @Studio Twenty-Two

Megan Allen was one of five recipients of the original Sony Alpha Female Creator-In-Residence grants. With over 6,000 applicants, Megan was chosen to help pave the road less traveled by female photographers in the industry. Megan is one of the most in demand wedding photographers in the country and founder of Studio Twenty-Two.
