Rolling Out The Red Carpet

A butler is rolling out the red carpet in this picture. He is wearing a tuxedo and white gloves and is the epitome of service and over-the-top luxury and attention to detail. This image can be used as a metaphor for exemplary service whether it is a business pursuit, an awards event, or service of a personal nature. The butler has the haughty attitude expected in an iconic image of a man servant. This picture of great service has a tongue-in-cheek quality that adds humor to the mix. When it comes time to roll out the red carpet, who better than a traditionally attired butler well versed in the decorum needed for such an event?


A Butler Rolls Out The Red Carpet

"Red Carpet" is a term that immediately brings to mind the highest order of service...nothing but the best. When combined with that other iconic symbol of service, the butler, the image becomes doubly compelling with no doubt in the viewer''s mind about the meaning behind the picture. This photo has been crafted to work as a vertical, horizontal, or square crop with copy space galore. The setting is an upscale one of wood paneling and a marble floor. This could be a hotel lobby, the entry way to a corporate office, or even a room in a mansion. It is most certainly an upscale environment which adds further to the themes of service, luxury and attention to detail. As a businessman I believe in rolling out red carpets for my clients, and in the case of this photograph, I happen to be the model for the role of the butler. I simply rented the Tuxedo and had my partner create the photograph of me and the carpet, which I then used Photoshop to composite into the photo of a lobby. Yes, the model release and the property release are both on file. This picture makes a great image to use for both advertising and editorial purposes when a visual is needed to call attention to service that is above and beyond the call of duty, service that goes the extra mile, and service that is fit for king!


Red Carpets Showing Success And Achievement

There is a huge demand for imagery that symbolizes success and achievement. The implication of this image is that of not just achievement, but success of the highest order, be it personal or business. Only someone at the top of their game has a butler literally rolling out a red carpet for their arrival. This is an image about the trappings of power, of leisure, and of the rewards of leadership. You definitely stand out from the crowd when you are greeted like this!
