Tyler Stableford, one of the absolute finest photographers in Colorado, poked his head into our inbox yesterday with a cool behind-the-scenes glimpse at the cover shoot for Creativity Magazine’s Ad Agency of the Year with the heads at Crispin Porter + Bogusky. Here’s what he had to say.
“Last month I photographed Alex Bogusky, Rob Reilly and Andrew Keller of CP+B for the “Ad Agency of the Year” cover of Creativity Magazine. We shot it just after a big snowfall on Loveland Pass in mid-December – the idea was to place the guys in an iconic Colorado high-mountain surrounding, much like you might shoot a NYC ad exec amidst a Manhattan skyline.”
“It was a challenging shoot – particularly for these guys who had to take the blasts of frigid spindrift every few minutes (and for the lights, which kept getting blown over despite sandbags etc). It’s a quick jpg so the color, contrast, etc. isn’t very accurate, but it tells a good story. The guys were wonderfully cooperative, despite the bone-chilling temps and gusty winds blowing snow in their faces.”
In other recent news, Tyler joined Canon as one of their Explorers of Light this year, and is lecturing around the country as one of their ambassadors. He’s also just returned from shooting a volunteer multimedia documentary on orphans in Ethiopia for an NGO doing work through child-sponsorship programs that helps support kids in their communities.
