Sometimes, finding just the right photography to fit your needs isn’t easy. And you may just need a little help. Which is why, for our July print mailer, we chose the below image from Atlanta-based photographer Fernando Decillis to remind creatives that when it comes to finding what you’re looking for, we’ll do Whatever It Takes.

Fernando shot this image for a bank that, at the time, was the only bank offering life insurance.

Fernando was kind enough to share this fun behind-the-scenes image as well:

If you’re a creative and didn’t get a copy (printed by Modern Postcard), email us your mailing address and we’ll send you one. If you’d like to check out all of our past print promos, see them here.

Recently, DC-based photographer Eli Meir Kaplan took a jaunt down to Goshen Scout Reservation in Virginia to shoot some personal work for the Boy Scouts of America. This was a natural light project, like most of Eli’s work, and filled with iconography that hasn’t changed much in the past 50 years.

I chatted with Eli about his inspiration for the project:

Goshen Scout Reservation first came to my attention because I had an intern who worked at one of the main Boy Scouts of America camps every summer, which sounded interesting. I did a quick Google search and found Goshen Scout Reservation, which exclusively serves Scouts from the Washington, DC area. It was set in the Shenandoah Valley, which is beautiful. Also, I was a Cub Scout as a kid and went to a similar camp for a week.

It was a two day shoot, with the first being mostly location scouting.

Eli plans on putting together a print promo piece featuring the project. For more of Eli’s work, check out his website.
