For the month of September, we headed over to the popular website Ads of the World for another round of web ads. AOTW is a social media site for advertising creatives to post and comment on recent work from agencies around the globe. It’s one of the top websites for creative professionals, and a great spot for us to spread the word about our talented roster of photographers.
You can read more about each of the six featured images below:

I was on location in San Diego shooting for the Electra Bicycle Co., and had a whole group of kids to photograph. They were all very sweet but also very distracted by the new bikes they’d just been handed, so we were having a hard time getting them to follow directions as we set up the shots. Suddenly my wardrobe stylist grabbed the dinosaur head and stuck it on my producer, pushing him into the shot. I called at the kids, ‘chase the dinosaur!’ and with this new-found purpose they were off! He probably ran around that park 20 times before we were done.

This Photo titled “Them Games We Play” is part of a series called The Surrealistic Pillow Project, where I have been recreating my dreams in photo form for the past 6 years. The picture is actually composed of about 10 different photos of the building behind that have been stitched to together. Pictured is my wife, playing hide and seek, while I hide hanging on the ledge of the building, nothing unusual.

The subject’s name is Addison Pemberton, and I was commissioned by Fortune to photograph him. He’s a business owner in Spokane, WA and in his spare time he rebuilds and restores vintage aircraft. He has an amazing collection and his shop is meticulous and organized. With all of the old feel of the planes I opted to shoot on 4×5 and with natural light. Spokane is in eastern Washington and I love to shoot there because the sun is always out. I use the horizontal image as a two-page spread in my editorial portfolio because I think it is just gorgeous.

This photo came from a series of photos shot for a company called PALTIEL d’KENN for their summer 2012 collection. The model in the photo is named Jordan Daniele. You can view the entire shoot here.

This handsome gentleman is an Irish fiddle player I photographed at a memorial service for Willie Clancy. Willie was a well known piper who set up an annual summer school for Irish music in the small west coast village called Miltown Malbay. The summer school is now a popular festival called the Willie Clancy festival.

This shot is all about the scales and text from the Chinese newspaper. The fish’s mouth mimics the graph, and the fin shapes play off the larger text lines of the newsletter and bamboo. It’s a shot that plays with composition, contrast and saturation—creating a powerful image built on subtleties.
