Here’s two portraits I shot in December for an ad with DDB Chicago for Emerson’s Process Management division.
They illustrate an elder engineer retiring from his position and the nervous young man that is about to take over his job. The piece will be running internationally in engineering trade publications.

We had a fun casting session with about twenty five options of each talent and ended up picking these two gents. Thanks to Markus @ Real Talent for supplying them!

They ended up running the images pretty small in this version of the ad, but here they are:

Art Buyers: Suzanne Koller + Karen Blatchford
Creative Director: Gary Matusek
Copywriter: Jeff Loibl
