Aerial Photography refers to the collection of pictures or images taken with the help of airborne or aerial cameras. Previously, people used to rely on parachutes, helicopters and other ways to capture beautiful and pleasing pictures of buildings, landscapes. It is also used for other purposes like environmental studies, movie production and many more. Now, we commonly use drones for aerial photography, it is easy to handle and an affordable option to capture stunning pictures from the sky.

 

One of the best aerial/drone photographers is Akil Henley. Akil Henley is a creator and photographer based in New York City. He is the guy who is an influencer with the drone known as “Traveldronelife”. He has travelled to many countries, where he has collected memories just by capturing amazing photographs. His love for aerial photography grows more with each passing day and he works hard to get his best shot and show everyone how magical the world is from the sky.

 

Akil is a natural-born creator whether it be content, music, apps or business. He plays multiple instruments including the Trumpet, Piano, and Clarinet. While Mr Henley took a liking to play musical instruments, he also found his love of photography at a very young age. With time he realised his passion for art and with six years of hard work and experience in professional aerial photography, he gained global recognition for his works.

 

During the French protest, Akil’s page blew up in 2018 as one of the photos of a storming France that he captured was reposted by the Eiffel Tower page in their story. He was reached out to several local Parisian periodicals to use his photo in their publications. His page found success again in 2019, when the NYC Instagram page reposted some of his photos in their stories and those caught the eye of NYC artist, Elizabeth Sutton, who requested him to photograph one of her artworks on Roosevelt island. Since that time, he has photographed from the drone in an additional 40 countries and in many of the states across the United States.

 

Due to the Pandemic and lockdown around the world, influencers or creators couldn’t travel and they had a challenge of creating more interesting content. This pushed Akil from being only a creator to an app developer that helps other creative people. He taught himself about how to code for iOS on YouTube and successfully submitted his first version of the “nFluencer app” for iOS in January which one year later has over 106k users. An app is an excellent tool for those looking to edit photos with ease, create cool stories or reels, and write longer captions.

 

Akil Henley is the best example of not only being creative but also focusing on how others will be benefited from his creative works. No obstruction has stopped him from growing. To see his amazing works with drones, you can click on the links below:

From Start to Stardom: Getting to Know Comedy’s Rising Star, Priest Douglas

When it comes to the US entertainment industry, few comedians have managed to make a lasting impact on the scene as much as Priest Douglas. Priest has quickly cemented his spot with his shows attracting massive attention offline and online. He was featured in several top publications, including Hustle Weekly and US Times. Priest Douglas also opened for notable names in the industry, including TK Kirkland, Michael Blackston, Tommy Davison, and DC Young Fly, with many praising his style. 

Priest specializes mainly in storytelling, enabling him to keep the crowd’s attention. He uses comedy to spread joy and love to encourage the audience.

Priest’s journey hasn’t been the easiest. He faced many challenges, from the brutal competition in the industry to people telling him he could not tell certain jokes because he should not be funnier than the headliner and losing everything after a toxic relationship.

Priest fell in love with the wrong person and spent almost 42 years in prison due to a lie. All this took a huge toll on his mental health and profoundly affected his career. 

Priest was just getting started in the entertainment industry, and when this happened, he had to take a step back. He felt like he lost everything and saw no need to fight for his passion.

Looking back, Priest says he is grateful that he had people by his side who reminded him why he started and helped him find his way back up. “Having God in my corner, as well as my supportive family, got me through all this, and I was cleared of all the charges,” Priest says.

He hopes to help others through comedy as he shows other young minds that nothing is impossible, and no matter what life throws at you, if you fall, don’t stay on the ground, get up, and keep pushing.

“Life is full of challenges, and sometimes, not everything works in your favor. But you don’t have to let the current situation determine your life and future. You can get past this and reach your goals,” Priest adds.

While it was hard, Priest didn’t give up. He invested in his dream once more and is now one of the fastest-rising comedians in the country. He has had several shows and performed alongside big names in the industry. Priest also caught the media’s attention, with top publications recognizing his unique style.

He says his goal is to do more shows in the coming years and hopefully inspire and empower youths to fight for their goals. In a few years, Priest sees himself in a movie or a lineup with other big-name celebrities and not just opening up for them.

His advice to young people is to be patient, invest in their goals, and not let other people’s opinions dictate their lives. “Dr. Martin Luther King once said, ‘Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.’ I think this is one of the best drivers in life and has greatly helped me. It keeps my mind at ease because I was once that person who held on to grudges, which affected my growth,” Priest concludes.

If You See Me: The Book Release of Producer/Musician, Pepé Willie

As a veteran producer, songwriter, and musician, Pepé Willie has accrued many years of experience in the music industry. From playing a key role in the emergence of the Minneapolis sound to mentoring some of the most iconic musicians of our time. And now, with the release of his debut book, “If You See Me: My Six Decade Journey in Rock and Roll,” he offers readers a firsthand account of his journey and a unique perspective on the music industry’s evolution. Written in collaboration with co-author Tony Kiene, this must-read memoir brings the memories of the past and influences the present to create an exciting journey for music fans everywhere.

From the emergence of New York’s R&B scene in the 1960s to the rise of the legendary icon Prince in the 1980s, this memoir takes readers on a journey through six decades of the music industry, seen through the eyes of one of its most influential players. In his book, Pepé shares personal stories about his friendship with Prince, including how they met and Prince’s undeniable talent for playing instruments. But much more, “If You See Me” transcends a mere story about Prince. It offers a deeper perspective into the ever-changing culture of the music business landscape from the 1960s and beyond. Pepé provides a behind-the-scenes look at the music industry, from the creation of hit songs to the inner workings of record labels and the struggles of up-and-coming artists.

As a founding member of the 1970s Minneapolis-based funk band 94 East, Pepé Willie pioneered the Minneapolis sound, a style that influenced generations of musicians. He served as a mentor to many emerging artists, including Prince, Morris Day, André Cymone, and many others, and his influence on the music industry cannot be overstated. Pepé’s journey is a testament to his impeccable skills as a mentor and consultant. His book guides ambitious artists looking to make a name for themselves in the industry.

A creative to the core, Pepé’s journey in the music industry started long before his time with 94 East. As a child, he was exposed to the industry through his uncle, a founding member of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame’s Little Anthony and The Imperials. Pepé would spend his time running errands for the Brooklyn Fox and Paramount Theatre artists, sitting in on recording sessions, and attending gigs at famous venues like the Copacabana club in New York. These experiences helped him cultivate the skills he would later share with others seeking success in the music business.

Published by The Minnesota Historical Society Press, “If You See Me” is already receiving rave reviews from music industry professionals and pop culture enthusiasts. The captivating memoir is a must-read for music enthusiasts and anyone interested in the behind-the-scenes of the industry and a guide for ambitious artists looking to make a name for themselves in the industry.
