Emriver ad in greyscale, railroad pennies.


I made a 1/4 page ad for Fisheries Magazine this weekend. The scene is crowded, and the only guy's head was cut off (sorry Lennie), but the ad is only 3.5" wide by 4.7" tall, and and this was the only photo of many that fit. All eyes are focused on Kimi's hand and there's a feeling of fun--it's a powerful image that captures how people feel and behave around the model.

I worked my way through high school and college doing photography and graphics. Color ads in these journals are crazy expensive. After years of having free use of color, I liked the challenge of black and white.

Kate and I put some pennies on the tracks next to the Long Branch last week, and on a long bike ride today I retrieved a couple.
