Campaign Spotlight: Glen Wexler for Nokia

Glen Wexler is a photographer and director best known for his elaborately staged digital photocompositions of improbable situations.

At 22 years old Wexler photographed his first album cover for Quincy Jones Production while a student at Art Center College of Design. He quickly gained a reputation for the imaginative photo illustrations he created for Michael Jackson, Van Halen, Rush, Black Sabbath, Yes, ZZ Top and many others.  Nowadays his clients include Epson, Acura, Sony, Jeep, Maxell, Adobe, Intel, Coca-Cola, Capital One, Toyota, Pepsi, Warner Brothers Pictures and hundreds of others.

Internationally recognized as one of the original artists to incorporate digital imaging technology into the creative process, Wexler is widely regarded as a leader in the field. Perhaps this is why Nokia saw him as the perfect fit for their Ozo ad campaign.

Ozo is the name of Nokia’s stereoscopic 360-degree 3D camera and the titular name of the hardware and software that can accompany the camera. Wexler’s long-time immersion in the digital imaging community made him the perfect person to show off this new technology. He did individual campaigns for OZO VR ProductionOZO Live Broadcast and OZO 360º Spatial Audio. You can see highlights from all three campaigns below.

Campaign Spotlight: Andy Mahr for Alpha Romeo

Photographer Andy Mahr was once art director and creative director Andy Mahr. He graduated from Colorado State University in 1994 with a BFA in Graphic Design. After that, Mahr earned a degree in Advertising Art Direction, this time from The Portfolio Center. Finally, there was 13 years of working as an art and creative director that preceded his eventual transition to photographer.

When you look at his photography, the framing in particular, it’s obvious that Mahr’s time in directorial roles has helped him develop a uniquely apt eye for framing and setting up shots. His photos manage to combine grit with a sharp elegance that brings the subjects to life, as if you’re seeing them with your own eyes, not through the lens of someone else.

Mahr is rep’d by Lesley Zahara and has done shoots for some of the biggest names in industry. Reebok, Chick-fil-A and the U.S. Marine Corps are just a few of his clients. Recently, Mahr photographed the Alfa Romeo Giulia for Alfa Romeo. You can see all the photos from that shoot below and to see more of Mahr, visit his AtEdge Portfolio.
