Assignments, Stock Photos, Funny Animal
Pictures and Concept Imagery
Conceptual Images, Funny Animal Pictures
For over thirty years I have created conceptual
images, with an emphasis on humorous animal photos, for assignments and stock photography.
I have shot for large corporations from Purina to Fed Ex and for countless ad agencies
and design firms. My humorous “Animal Antics” greeting card line has been the best
selling line of cards for the Portal brand for almost a decade. My Photoshop Book,
Adobe MasterClass: Photoshop Compositing with John Lund was published by Peachtree
Press in English, Japanese, Chinese and Russian, and my funny animal gift books
have been published in seven languages. Whether the project is large or small I
have the experience and the desire to create the best possible art for the job.
My work has appeared in Communication Arts, Print, PDN, and numerous photography
Funny Pictures And The Internet
Funny pictures have exploded into our consciousness
thanks to the Internet, digital technology, mobile phone cameras, and social media.
We are flooded with funny images of cats, dingy dog photos and silly squirrels taking
on all the attributes of we humans. Tens of thousands of photos are uploaded to
the world wide web everyday with entire sites devoted to compiling funny photos
whether of our pets, stupid human tricks or the foibles of friends and family.
Humor Adds Impact And Interest
While I do create my share of business images
that do not employ humor, the vast majority of my photography, to a greater or lesser
degree, depends on some form of humor to add impact and interest to my work. Nothing
makes me feel better than seeing someone get pleasure from viewing my photos…and
I know that humor is one of the best ways to catch a viewer’s interest and keep
them remembering as time goes buy. Humor entertains, funny pictures attract
viewers, and a laugh or a chuckle is a sure sign of success.
Humorous Greeting Cards And More
In addition to the humorous greeting cards
we have, through the years, published funny animal calendars, silly animal coffee
mugs, pet picture frames, cat and dog Christmas ornaments, veterinary reminder cards,
funny jigsaw puzzles and more. From anthropomorphic elephants to speeding Cheetahs
to love birds, we are continually adding to our collection of humorous images for
paper and printed products. We also have beautiful lighthouse images, adventure
travel photography and even lions, tigers and bears…oh my!
Unexpected Twists, Facial Expressions And
There are a lot of different ways to introduce
humor into photography. Adding an unexpected twist (like an angry lion in a waiting
room), taking something really over the top (a bridge made of men hanging on to
each other’s ankles), a simple facial expression…and the list goes on and on. I
particularly enjoy creating subtle facial expressions on animals that allow us to
see the human qualities that they may, or may not have, in actuality. And of course,
facial expressions on our fellow humans are also an effective means of introducing
Laughter Is The Best Medicine
Whether the humor is slapstick, droll, or
tongue in cheek doesn’t really matter as long as it brings a bit of cheer to viewer.
In fact, I see funny photos as not just a way for effective advertising, promotional
and editorial imagery, I see it as a service to mankind. Laughter is, after all,
the best medicine. Laughter lowers our stress levels and helps us to relax. Even
the act of smiling has a positive effect on our bodies and our psyches.
