While you were out enjoying fun-filled summer activities with friends, we were busy creating a handful of eye-catching web ads to promote ourselves on Feature Shoot. We love advertising on Feature Shoot; it’s a great website that showcases a wide array of amazing work from photographers across the globe. They feature photos and projects from commercial and fine art photographers and are a great inspiration spot for photo editors, art buyers and anyone interested in photography.
I touched base with each of the six photographers featured to get some behind the scenes info. Click the images below to see each ad in all their glory. Enjoy!

The image is part of a series based on things you can buy at a dollar store. This scale was actually ten dollars at the dollar store. However, because I only had nine dollars on me at the time, I saved a dollar. Outside of that, I’m somewhat obsessed with all things that have a nostalgic kitsch to them.

The shot is from an ongoing personal project documenting the lives of captive animals. I wanted to portray a balanced view of wildlife in zoos, highlighting both the positive and negative aspects. This macaque was photographed in Chiang Mai Zoo in Northern Thailand. His expression caught my eye immediately.
Before relocating to Beijing from New York, I invited New Yorker’s to my studio for a portrait session. New York is a very special place and I will always consider it home. I gave that city my life, but this time I wanted to take something from it. I was interested in capturing the personalities of the people that I’d interacted with. Editing the film during the first month I was in Beijing brought nostalgia, but also a smile to my face. It was exactly what I had hoped: a photographic record of people that were involved in my life during my seven years in New York.

This image was from a shoot for an editorial that was shot on location at different low rent motels. I was drawn to the gaudy and stale styles of the older rooms, flavored with cigarette smoke, broken TV’s and worn furniture. After that initial shoot, we were walking through the motel parking lot and I glanced over at the pool and got really excited by the light I was seeing—it was so eerie. We climbed the fence and I asked the girls to jump in and swim around to see what it looked like. I used only available light, and ever so slightly dragged the shutter to add a tiny amount of blur. I really loved the result and it’s inspired me to do another series which I am working on now.
Jeff Wilson / Austin
The image was created at an annual fireworks display in my hometown that I’d been to many times before. I had photographed fireworks in the past, but they tend to be a pretty dry subject with no scale or reference. I ended up sitting behind a couple and photographing the fireworks more as a backdrop to their interaction rather than as the main event.
Chad Hurst / Salt Lake City
The image was shot for X Insurance. The tagline was “The last words you want to hear are, THAT’S NOT COVERED.” It was part of a series that was developed by an ad agency in Salt Lake. While they were developing the ideas, they had me in mind to execute them; they felt my style would bring the images to exactly the point they envisioned.
