The beauty of working visual assets is imagining what else could be of them when allowing your creativity to drift into other realms and possibilities. In some of the pieces shown on this page, I do offer background referencing as to what inspired certain works.
The statue in this composite original is an actual bodybuilder who commissioned and posed for me to execute this piece based on his specifications. The backdrops are all separate composites as well as the flag (created in a 3D environment to reflect lighting and translucency); the client never actually held a pole during our photo-session.
In another commissioned piece, the client also appears in this composite shot to convey his dedication for his career in music production. Well-versed in sounds and keyboards, he wanted to image that presented his world being surrounded by all things harmonic and in musical key form. I believe such a shot here has been achieved.
