Animal Photography

Spotlight on Jason Elias

It’s not every day that a commercial photographer gets commissioned by Discovery Channel to shoot promo work for their most important week, Shark Week.

The fact that they trusted Jason Elias to execute their concept speaks volumes about the type of work in Jason’s portfolio. His photographs span multiple forms such as lifestyle, portrait, and travel but his images all have one thing in common: they have the ability to enthrall the viewer.

His work for Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, as well as his recent portraits of Seal and Eli Roth, do just that by capturing each subject in a way that seizes attention.

Lennette Newell’s Ani-Human Project

Wild is an adjective we often use to describe animals, reflecting the distance separating our civilized lifestyles from the outlying natural world.

In Lennette Newell‘s Ani-Human series, the gap between humans and wild animals is diminished, along with any hierarchy that has been imposed by the technology of man. The series portrays the certainty that a tranquil co-inhabitance can exist, and therefore the possibility that it could propagate.

Each subject, whether animal or human, is equal. Although the human subject could even be seen as subservient, trying to mimic the grace and physical beauty of the animal, yet imperfectly. An observation that is emphasized by the animals’ effortless elegance placed in both a man-made studio and an environmental backdrop. Together without a spatial barrier, an original relationship unfolds between the animal and the human, a peaceful coexistence that is not exploited by the somatic dominance of the animal, who could in a time period of seconds curtail the human’s life.

Snapshots of these interactions convey a joint persistence, though it is safe to say these interactions do not persist in space and time.

Markku Lahdesmaki Teams Up With M&C Saatchi for San Diego Zoo

Markku worked with the team at M&C Saatchi to create compelling imagery for San Diego Zoo’s 100-year Anniversary celebration.

The images featured extraordinary, giant animal puppets used for “The Journey”, a musical processional honoring the Zoo’s history and the quest to end extinction.

In explaining why Markku was selected to bring the concepts to life, Art Producer Brian Bushaw of M&C Saatchi stated: “There were a few key factors that led to awarding the job to Markku. The shots were challenging composites, requiring special attention to lighting and detail in the studio, as well as forethought into the backgrounds we’d be stripping into. Markku is a master of both, as his portfolio demonstrates.”

2 out of 3 images just recently received top honors in the AOP’S 2016 Photography Awards. The Elephant took Best-Of-Commissioned Advertising Single Image, while the Flamingos placed in the top 12. Both images will be featured in the AOP Awards 2016 book.

Markku is represented by Brite Productions. Take a look at his fascinating body of work through his AtEdge portfolio and at markkuphoto.com.

Hunter Freeman: Texture App

Hunter Freeman worked with Texture, a company that aggregates the world’s greatest magazines into one app, for their newest advertising campaign.
