Spotlight on Michael Maes for Jack Daniels

Maes Studio was commissioned to shoot a national ad campaign for Jack Daniels encouraging viewers to take a fresh look at two very classic cocktails: the Jack & Ginger and the Jack & Coke. Maes and team brought their years of product shooting expertise to the bar and delivered a set of full-bodied images enticing consumers to “Try The Jack.”

Michael and Alicia first connected with FCB at a couple of AtEdge events.
