I am a editorial, event, documentary photographer and videographer working in the Detroit area. My commercial clients include the Ford Motor Company, General Motors, the Detroit Free Press, Detroit Public Television, PBS, the Kresge Foundation and the US Department of Energy. I co-produce the DPTV (PBS) program "Detroit Performs" an Emmy winning weekly television magazine.

Roy Feldman has the eye to catch a shot as well as the heart to tell a story. Roy’s videos for the Emmy winning Detroit Public TV’ “Detroit Performs” series reveal the motivations that drive an artist through an effective mix of video, still photography and judicious editing
