Eric Seals Visual Journeys

Shipwreck hunter David Trotter & his team of divers headed out into Lake Huron in July of 2013 several times & discovered a 1861 Civil War era ship, the Keystone State.
The ship was rumored to have carried Civil War weapons & gold but after several dives the condition of the ship made searching for them impossible.
The historic find is one of many ships that Trotter has discovered since the mid-1970's.
He believes in leaving the ships as they are on the bottom & is not into recovering or taking items, he's in it for the history, the stories behind the ships, the sailors lost & to educate others about Michigan's Great Lakes.

Video storytelling can be powerful when done with a good story, striking visuals & good editing. It takes viewers on a visual ride they'll enjoy & walk away with something from after watching it.

Video storytelling can be powerful when done with a good story, striking visuals & good editing. It takes viewers on a visual ride they'll enjoy & walk away with something from after watching it.

I'm a photo & video journalist for the Detroit Free Press which over the past few years has become a place known for great video storytelling from talented video journalists with 17 Michigan Emmy Awards, an industry leading 4 National Emmy Awards for online video & recently a prestigious Webby Award for best online sports video of Courtney Hawkins.

In May of 2008 I started shooting video features for the paper, three months later I headed to the Summer Olympic games in Beijing where covering the games also allowed me to do several video features about life in Beijing.

It's a huge learning curve for me but I'm discovering that telling stories with video is fun, challenging & something to keep me growing at & getting better.

    Nice altitude Eric! A couple freshly charged Anti-Fog Inserts in the housing should eliminate any fogging potential on future flights. Looking forward to the next video!
