Kabul Media was established in 2002 by John Marion. John lived in
Afghanistan in the mid-1990's, working with a non-governmental organization
(NGO) delivering relief, medical care, humanitarian aid, and offering community development
assistance to the war ravaged nation.
John also conducts cultural
awareness training seminars. The seminars are designed to help participants
understand the basic world-view and culture of Afghans as well as how to effectively interact with
people in Afghan society.
Since 2001 John has been traveling to Afghanistan assisting in business
and development projects with various companies and NGOs.
One such project is focused on bringing affordable video production services
to NGOs with limited budgets. The productions help donors understand the needs
of Afghanistan and the success of the projects.
Over the last several years, Kabul Film and Media has used a number of video
and still photographers to create a large library of Afghanistan royalty free photography.
We are now making sections of the Kabul Film and Media library available
as royalty free content, Afghanistan stock photos and Afghanistan video footage with sound.
John has a web blog here.
