Behind The Shot: Delta Airlines

We love seeing winning ImageBrief shots out and about, and when we spotted this snapshot of the perfect NYC scene in Midtown Manhattan, now the face of a worldwide Delta Airlines campaign, our excitement just couldn’t be contained! This is what ImageBrief is all about: connecting the best of the best from both ends of the creative process and letting the magic happen.

Not surprisingly, we couldn’t resist getting in touch with the photographer, Pamela Oliveras, for a play by play of her process, from the first spark of inspiration to the point of sale on the ImageBrief platform. Thanks for chatting with us, Pamela, and congratulations!

Product Review: Artifact Uprising Layflat Photo Album

Review: Artifact Uprising Layflat Photo Album

Photo: © Chip Kalback

Up until now I’ve never really invested in a solid printed portfolio. I’ve gotten by with my iPad app (in my opinion Portfolio for iPad is the best one out there), or the occasional $50 book printed with any number of online services just so I’d have something on paper. The $50 book served it’s purpose I guess, but it also looked like a $50 book, with mediocre paper quality and inconsistent color reproduction.

If I wasn’t taking my printed book seriously, how could I expect the ad agencies or magazines I’ve met with to take it seriously either? A high quality, beautifully assembled, printed portfolio was long overdue for me, and that’s when I took a closer look at Artifact Uprising’s Layflat Photo Album.

How 8 Photographers Worked Directly with Reebok via ImageBrief

Recently Reebok came to ImageBrief with a project that required photographers to capture their in-store promotions (market activation) in eight different locations in US cities. They’re just one of the lifestyle brands using ImageBrief to discover and hire talent previously not in their network. Reebok’s image requirements include product shots, branded lifestyle content, generic (but quality) lifestyle content and of course, big budget productions.  

Their usage needs also vary — from worldwide key brand campaigns to social media posts with an ‘on-air’ time of just hours. For this particular job, the images are to be used internally only.

Previously, Reebok hired three photographers from ImageBrief’s directory to source images of their current products for digital marketing. Read more about that here.

Pastels Perfect for Spring

We created this post for our friends over at InVision last year and it featured work from 14 of our photographers. We figured since spring is just around the corner that it’s just as relevant today. Check out the original post here.

From buildings coated with mint-green paint, to aquamarine oceans, these pastel-rich photographs are a great source for fresh color palette inspiration.
