Ever since May when I shot this campaign for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, I have been waiting with great anticipation for the day to come when I could share it with you! Good thing for me the sports lifestyle ads, designed by the talented graphic designer Dan Paterno started running this week! Soon you’ll see them on Buses, on the web and in magazines.
Recently, B Creative Bridal, part of B Creative Talent, asked me to shoot advertising photos for the launch of their website. Because I was tasked with shooting a web commercial, lifestyle stills and beauty headshots of three different couples and one wedding party on location in the span of ten hours, I asked my friend Jeff Haynes to come and lend a hand. He shot the headshots, while I worked on the behind-the-scenes video and the lifestyle photos. Thank god he was there, because there was no way one person could shoot everything.
I was so excited ten years ago when an advertising agency asked me to shoot nine day-in-the-life photo essays featuring utility workers in Wyoming for a public relations ad campaign. The December 2002 project was such an amazing opportunity to not only take some really cool pictures, but experience quite an adventure. Every day we visited a new small town, each different in their own way.
My exciting new GLBT lifestyle ads for Miller64 were just released during a party at Roscoe’s Tavern in Chicago, the location where we shot the above image.
