Cliché ; Memorable Messages and the Power Of Humor

I shoot cliche’s. I shoot cliche’s to help businesses communicate messages for advertising, promotional and editorial purposes, messages that strike a chord with their audiences, messages that are memorable, and messages that utilize the power of humor to enhance their effectiveness. Cliche’s, as maligned as they may be, when properly utilized, can be harnessed to help give communications deeper and longer lasting impressions.


Ubiquitous, Powerful Communications Tools

Clichés are concepts that are so ubiquitous that they are instantly recognizable, even on a deep subconscious level, to virtually everyone. Some might argue that they lose effectiveness by over use, but I would argue that by illustrating them in visual ways that they haven’t been seen before, and incorporating humor into those concepts, you have a much more powerful communication tool.

Photo-Realistic Illustrations

This portfolio is a brief sampling of the many cliche’s I have photo-realistically illustrated for clients and for stock photography. Images showing timeless concepts such as success, standing out from the crowd, risk, vitality and more are presented here both for potential use and to illustrate what is possible. If you can dream it, we can create it.  At least, we can create a photographic reality that can help get your message across to the audience you want to reach.

Iconic Images and Lasting Impressions

Whether you want to “blow someone’s socks off”, or create a yearning for freedom, a well-crafted photo illustration of a tried and true concept can cross language and cultural barriers, create a lasting impression, and possible tap into the viral power of the Internet. We create these iconic images, in most cases, so that they have the versatility of being cropped vertically, square, or horizontally, and have room for Headlines and body copy. We also make them clean, graphic images that are quickly and easily read at thumbnail sizes.

From Imagination to Execution

I have been using Photoshop to create iconic stock photos for over twenty years now, so you may just find exactly what you are looking for in our library of images. On the other hand, if you know what you want, but it has not yet been taken from imagination to execution, we just might be the ones to undertake that assignment for you. Certainly no one has more experience at shooting and compositing than I do. I may even already have some of the necessary elements in my own library of “parts” collected from years of both shooting and Photoshopping.  If the necessary parts need to be photographed, I am experienced at shooting in the studio as well as on locations throughout the world.

Elephants, Cobras and Lions

I have photographed elephants in Thailand, Cobras in India, Discos in Buenos Aires, bridges in Burma and wrestling in Mongolia. In my studio I have shot everything from Lions (they can spray over fifteen feet in distance) to Reindeer (they stamp their feet when annoyed) to models (they never have the wardrobe they claim to have).  I know from experience that Bloodhounds don’t like be on their backs, that Tigers “chuff” at you to express friendliness, and that cat’s are only motivated by food.

Adding Impact to Communications

Hopefully you can find here what you need to add impact to your communications, and if not, then you can have confidence that I can create the perfect new photographic reality for your particular needs. To see more work you can search other portfolios, or search by keyword in our stock library.
