Texas based media photography company Route Three Productions expands into documentary style photojournalism projects and other projects in order to expand baseNewsrooms want to be able to send their reporters to the front lines of the big stories that happen each and everyday. We heard them and we are working with them to help deliver on that.”CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, January 7, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- What started out as a way to earn a little additional money during the pandemic has turned into a fairly large operation for husband and wife team Kelly and Matt Pierce who together started Route Three Productions in 2020. On Thursday, the company announced their new vision for 2022 and beyond as they focus on reaching more readers and viewers across multiple platforms.— Matt Pierce, Managing Editor
"Kelly and I decided to go really expand our presence in 2022 and look into really connecting with our customers and finding new clients across the board," Pierce said. "Kelly is an economics major and really loves data, so we are drawing off of her experience understanding that data to really broaden our horizons and expand our global reach."
The company started out doing simple stock photography from their home in Texas. But now the pair is taking on projects such as deep dive photobooks into social issues, creating more video content for the internet, and making travel related publications about their experiences along the way. Their approach is simple: Never Leave A Story Untold.
"When I am making my way around the country or the world I am always looking for the thing that makes you stop and think," says Matt Pierce, who is a long-time journalist and freelance photojournalist. "I like to make sure that my audience connects to the story, and the story connects to the audience."
While working on projects the company will be partnering with media outlets to distribute content, cover news and current events directly from the field, and provide spot coverage to major news stories when they are close to a major story.
"When I first started in this industry some 15 years ago technology was still pretty much evolving," Matt says. "Now with things like portable encoders, professional camera gear being more affordable, and the connectivity ever expanding it really gives us a way to connect with media partners better than ever before from almost anyplace on earth. Technology is really something."
Matt says that with the technology gap becoming more and more filled-in every single day, they are able operate a complete newsroom directly from the field and really take local news consumers where they want to go--right to the heart of the story.
"Newsrooms want to be able to send their reporters to the front lines of the big stories that happen each and everyday around the country," Matt says. "We heard them and we are working with them to help deliver on that."
Matt says that the ability to send in video reports, write stories from the field, send back images in real-time and work to find sources during breaking news is really key to making a successful story that local news consumers really want to connect with.
"We can do a live shot from almost anywhere, we can deliver a package with video, photos, text and script in almost no time at all," Matt says. "If we say that we are on-scene of a wildfire in the mountains and a local outlet wants to cover it, then they now have our resources in the field to be able to do that. We really are production company that connects with local markets and local newsrooms around the world."
Matt says that while they recognize there is still a lot of pushback from trade groups about freelance production companies coming into the market, he isn't concerned too much with that.
"News coverage and content solutions are changing all of the time and newsrooms are changing with it," he says. "I really do believe that as things evolve and that as things change in the news media industry we will set the bar for what comes next."
While the company says that they are not giving up on their stock photography and editorial content, they are putting more of a focus on news coverage and building more of a presence in the publishing market sector.
"These are exciting times to be in the news and documentary production industry," says Matt. "Our goal is find as many partners as we can a deliver as many stories as we can from the frontlines. I get excited about where our industry goes from here."
So while the pandemic might have put a damper on some things, for this husband and wife duo it only sparked more creativity and it has given them time to do the research and develop a product that connects people around the world to stories that really touch their lives.
To learn more about how Route Three Productions can help your local newsroom or to get information about their current projects they say that you can reach out to them directly and they will be happy to discuss it with you. They also say that they are will consider customized content and reporting scenarios for news outlets that have an idea for a story.
"I am never closed minded to the idea of working with News Directors or other Managing Editors about stories they think might work well for them,' Matt says. "Because chances are that if it works well for them, that means it will work well for somebody else. This is all about collaboration and that is the part that I love the most."

Asia-Pacific serves as the most productive region as compared to others with diverse industry verticals significantly investing in air quality control systems.
PORTLAND, OR, UNITES STATES, January 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Air quality control systems are used to maintain the air quality, which needs to be maintained both indoors and outdoors. The harmful and contaminated pollutants released from industries such as cement manufacturing, chemical processing, power generation, semiconductor manufacturing, automotive, energy, oil and gas, agriculture and others, can result in adverse health effects. The air quality control systems (AQCS), thus, offer solutions for controlling and handling of air, gases, and contaminants to provide cleaner air discharge. The market is primarily driven due to growth in awareness about the effects of air pollution on the health and well-being of the population.
Increase in demand for air filters in medical & pharma industries, rise in focus to combat air pollution and surge in industrialization in emerging countries drive the growth of the global air quality control systems market. On the other hand, high initial investment & operating cost and decline in number of new coal power plants across the globe hamper the growth to some extent. However, high-end technological advancements and stringent government regulations toward controlling air pollution are expected to create an array of lucrative opportunities for the key players in the industry.
Download Sample Report: https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/request-sample/1115
The air pollution control segment to lead the trail by 2026-
Based on application, the air pollution control segment contributed to nearly two-fifths of the total air quality control systems market revenue in 2018 and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to increased industrial manufacturing and infrastructural development across the globe. The tunnels segment, on the other hand, is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 6.9% during 2019–2026. The fact that air pollutant concentrations can rapidly reach distressing levels in underground road tunnels spurs the growth of the segment.
The ambient segment to rule the roost-
Based on product type, the ambient segment accounted for nearly three-fourths of the total air quality control systems market share in 2018 and is anticipated to dominate till 2026. This is due to increase in demand for air quality control systems such as wet scrubbers and dry scrubbers in varied end-user industries including power generation and automotive, to eliminate airborne contaminants and/or industrial gases from exhaust streams in ambient air. Simultaneously, the indoor segment is predicted to cite the fastest CAGR of 5.7% during the estimated period. Rise in adoption of air filtration products such as air cleaners, air filters, and air purifiers, to improve the indoor air quality drive the growth of the segment.

Asia-Pacific, followed by North America, held the largest share in terms of revenue-
Based on geography, the Asia-Pacific region, followed by North-America, generated the largest share in 2018, holding nearly two-fifths of the total air quality control systems market. The increased necessity for food, electricity, oil, gas, and power in the region has worked as the major driving factor for the growth. At the same time, the LAMEA region would showcase the fastest CAGR of 6.5% throughout the study period. Enhanced reliability and capability to prevent contaminated air in the region have propelled the growth.

The Need to Promote World Peace - Dr. Sam Swapn's Book on the Global Pandemic is Now Available WorldwideEINPresswire.com/ -- Dr. Sam Swapn, a prolific coach, entrepreneur, and author, has released his book 'World War III Corona' to discuss the truths and fiction about the global pandemic. The book is now available on Amazon and other major online book retailers.NEWARK, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 6, 2022 /
The devastating impact of the global pandemic is tantamount to the wars and calamities that furiously struck humanity during the course of our history. The COVID-19 pandemic has infected millions and has brought global economic activity to a near-standstill. It is estimated that the impact of COVID-19 is $ 10 Trillion, the largest economic shock the world has experienced in decades.
The book, World War III Corona, delves deep into the highly transmissible virus' economic, social, and geopolitical ramifications. Although its survivability varies greatly across settings and ages; on average, it kills almost 1 out of every 100 infected people. With the world coming to a complete standstill due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the author reflects a completely different perspective of the pandemic situation.
World War III Corona explains that current biowarfare has changed the world forever. However, savagery and wars can be dealt with through peaceful means. According to the author, Dr. Sam Swapn, the idea of destroying the world is wicked, and that the world nations need to understand the significance of promoting world peace. We need hope, truth, courage, and faith that allows the nations to cooperate and gain wisdom to promote peace and love among humanity. The later part of the book emphasizes that world countries control and promote world peace. This implies the states to mutually cooperate and work out nonviolent efforts to save human lives. Moreover, it empowers nations to think outside the box to maintain human goodness—altruism, compassion, peace, equality, and justice in this world.
As the readers begin to read the book, they will find the powerful and motivating style of writing that strikes a reader's mind with powerful questions concerning the virus and its impact. For instance, people want to know how this virus became so widespread and caused tragic deaths. In addition, the pandemic led to severe financial crises as many economies are structurally facing loss. Communities are alarmed about what will happen in the future, how this virus will vanish, and how people can fully return to their normal lives.
The book states that this is World War 3 based on biowarfare, but the attacker is invisible. John Hopkin's research studies say that the world communities should develop a global peace mission; the states should initiate essential peace-building measures that will help the nations understand what direction they are heading to and how they can plan and calculate possible risks ahead. We need a new global system that talks about consumer market and investment capacity, reduce the defense budget, and scales down military warheads. Moreover, individuals and communities should plan out how to win the game rather than become victims of the virus and suffer irreplaceable losses.
The purpose of writing this book is to help humanity with social justice and peace. Dr. Sam believes that countries should spend less on wars and more on creating equality, educating people, and creating happiness. Going back to the way we were before COVID-19 is not an option for the states now. So, we need to accept the challenge and take the opportunity to start thinking about a new normal. We need to create a safe, secure, and peaceful global haven for our future generations.

Run From the Frustrations of the Outside World into the Welcoming Arms of Fiction New Audiobook "Unpredictable and Fun"
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Mike Corbett’s New Edition of “Mr. Nachron’s List” is a blend of romance, history and science fiction with South Florida as its hub.
Who is the beautiful young leper that seduces Ron during his unintended trip to Panama?
Why would Richard Feynman, a noted twentieth-century physicist, pick up Ron hitchhiking in a New Mexico desert?
If you knew that there was something on the other side of a door that shouldn’t logically exist, would you go through it? Ron Maddock wasn’t the type of person to back slowly and sensibly away. It wasn’t just curiosity. His compulsion to cross that threshold was fueled by an appetite for stimuli that his normal routine wasn’t providing. Suddenly, Ron entered a world where the passage of time and a sequence of events were out of order.
He wasn’t facing this strangeness alone. Two strong women and a peculiar little man provided the incentive and the means to navigate an improbable array of obstacles. In Mr. Nachron’s List, Ron Maddock discovers that some of the most vivid images of a modern world may be found in artifacts of an older one.
“Mr. Nachron’s List” is an enjoyable surreal adventure of time travel and exploration of a world that is captivating. A short tale fraught with complications and fascinating characters. This is one of those interesting books that you don’t necessarily see the ending or plot twists coming…. If you are a fan of surrealism and quirk, this is a definite must listen.” AudioBookReviewer.com
Along with “Mr. Nachron’s List” and “Laughter of the Damned” (a satirical sendup of heaven and hell), Mike Corbett has authored tactical books on poker and backgammon. He is fascinated by the wavering border between reality and fantasy and he is a master of the transition from observation to interpretation. Corbett established an international reputation during decades of high level game competition in addition to providing entertaining lectures and contributions to periodicals on game theory.
Audiobook Available on Amazon, Audible, iTunes
Persian Wars' volume one tells the tales of four Persian Families in the aftermath of the Islamic Revolution of 1979.ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, January 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Bahman Akhavan has released his anthology 'Persian Wars' on different digital publishing platforms. The first volume of the book, titled 'Home and Away', is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other major online book stores.
The book tells stories of Persian people, their ties to their ancient history and rich culture, and emphasizes the adverse effect of transformation on Persian families. Persians who left the country during the Islamic Revolution transitioned well into the Western culture yet suffered a cultural shock. The families faced relationships and identity crises and lacked a deep-rooted sense of traditional values and morals.
The Persian Wars focuses on how, and in how many different ways, Persian people have successfully dealt with the cataclysmic revolution of 1979. Although many fled and sought asylum in other countries, many stayed and adapted to the Islamic cultural impositions in purely Persian ways. Reading this book will help readers teach positive values, ethics, and morality. The stories teach us how family dynamics help shape a person's life. Positive upbringing and support set the foundation for lifelong learning, behavior, and health. Family values enable us to realize the best version of ourselves, provide a vision and a path of purpose. The stories illustrate how a catalyst for this transformative realization may positively or negatively impact human behaviors. The writer states that it is not about an immigrant's plight! Instead, it summons years of struggle and strife to preserve a tradition and, at the same time, allow the person to progress.
The author wishes the reader to become open-minded, fair, and non-judgmental and avoid biases and prejudices. Consequently, the readers will relate to these characters and be inspired by them and how they overcome their struggles and challenges. It helps them to change their life and bring spiritual peace.
Akhavan hopes to inspire the readers to understand the intricacies of life and enable them to overcome their daily struggles. Understanding real-life situations and learning to cope makes them more resilient and courageous. The book is a must-read for the Persian community, other minority communities, anybody who is curious about or interested in other cultures, and anybody interested in reading stories that touch the heart. Thus, readers will gain insight into this complex culture of Persian families, how they get inspiration from other cultures. The transformation comes from an unlikely source that may positively or negatively impact lives.
Similarly, accepting kindness from an unexpected person may touch hearts in unexpected ways. The message conveyed by the writer is to overcome one's prejudice through acceptance and understanding. Writing this inspiring book for people implies gaining inspiration and motivation from Irani families. Iranian individuals struggle in their day-to-day lives but find inspiration to move ahead in life one way or another. Every element in one's life adds up to influence the individual's goals and aspirations.
About the Author
Bahman Akhavan is a Persian artist and writer who has lived in the USA for over 50 years. The writer believes in eliminating the differences between cultures. The author states that to do this, we must remove ourselves from the prejudices that plague us, opening our minds to new opportunities and better acceptance.
Cancer survivor bares all in What the Doctors Don’t Tell You and creates community for teenagers in her meditation app Zen for TeensUNITED STATES, January 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- In What the Doctors Don’t Tell You: One Woman’s Journey Through Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Kimberly Joy Beam shares her experiences battling and surviving cancer. Her memoir is a compelling work of creative non-fiction. She starts from the day she found the lump in her collar bone, through the process of diagnosis, and treatment. She walks readers through the journey, so they understand why she transformed and her passion to live the rest of her life. She also reveals how there are many aspects of the battle against cancer that doctors cannot convey, for these are roads the individual must walk by themself. In the pages of her book, Beam shares experiences and insights for those who are undergoing any life struggle – so that readers don’t feel alone.
After Hodgkins, Beam was slammed with anxiety for the second time in her life. Her mother started to call it Post Traumatic Cancer Disorder and her doctor didn’t deny it. Beam wanted to work in a hospital and change the systemic problems she saw with the role, so she pursued a second master’s degree. In that study, she learned about meditation and mindfulness. After earning her degree, she attended weekly meditation programs, silent meditation retreats, studied breathwork under a certified breathwork instructor, and became a qualified Mindfulness Instructor through UMass Medical School. She learned she could quiet the anxiety. She found the best version of herself.
Beam designed Zen for Teens as a place for teenagers to build their individual practice and create community. The top 25 subscribing users and sharers of the app, every quarter, are awarded the title Zenbassador. Zenbassadors are invited to a 2 hour Zoom meeting with Beam and are invited to add content to the app. Zanbassadors are also invited to give feedback on the app itself, and thus help shape future versions of the app as it is developed. Meditation has been proven to be an effective integrative treatment for mental health issues, in conjunction with counseling, therapy and medical treatment. This app is available on iTunes and Google Play.
"Every experience in life contributes to who you are becoming. Every experience has the potential to change you and help create your future. I didn’t want cancer and didn’t want treatment. I blamed God for not healing me. I also see how it is one of the most glorious and terrible things I have ever been through. I changed the course of my life because of getting sick and going through treatment. It also contributed to my finding mindfulness and that led to my creating the meditation app. I would never have built Zen for Teens if I hadn’t gotten sick and walked the lonely roads I walked. I never would have built it if I hadn’t learned for myself the power that meditation holds in keeping anxiety in check," Beam says.
