Johnnie Walker Ad with Gold Stamp GLOW
Though Johnnie Walker black is one of my favorite whiskeys, I don't usually have a bottle on hand. It was on sale at the local market, so I made a deal with myself: "You buy it, you shoot it." So I put together a little photoshoot for my portfolio. I'm planning on ramping up my portfolio with commercial advertising photography this summer.

Guinness Draught Dark Matter Ad 2
This was actually much harder than it seems. Besides having to rent a rocket to get this shot, handling Guinness proved to be a project full of trial and errors. Finding a Guinness pub glass isn't as easy as you'd think either. I know, you can buy anything on the internet, but I wanted to be sure the glass I received wasn't flawed. (This version sharpened)
Condiment Free Guinness Advert 5
I'd love to go back to the drawing board on this one, but might as well put it online since it took a bit of effort. I was a server for years back in the day. One of my pet peeve's while serving during the cocktail hour was being sent by customers to get more olives or "garnish", if you will. I always thought, if you don't like your drink, turning it into a salad isn't the answer. The clear contrast to these customer's were the patrons who always ordered the same beer on tap and never asked for it to be decorated in any way. This is a play on that contrast of characters. Oh and that model with the beer in his hand is heavily photoshopped. That's because he is me and I am no model. Did I mention heavily? Few things are as awakening as looking at a before and after of yourself after photoshop.
Heineken Long Neck Bottle Ad 2
Heineken changed it's look with a new long neck bottle. This is a combo shot of a photo I took in Holland a couple of years ago and a product shot of a Heineken bottle I recently took for my portfolio. Continuing in the beverage advertisement series for my portfolio. (This image a little more saturated)

Anchor Steam Dock Low Calorie Ad
Stock photography can be a tedious process when looking for a proper background for an image. Typically I'll have to do a lot of tweaking with color and perspective to make a composition work. I got lucky with this find. This background worked as is straight from the download. Background by Vlntn on Fotolia.
Anchor Steam Closer Look
A closer at the bottle and glass. I had some fun decorating the bottle and glass independently. I wanted them both to have unique condensation. I gave the bottle a look as if it had been pulled from an ice box and the glass a look as if it was a chilled. I kept the lighting fairly consistent.

Absolute Citron Nature Print Ad
This concept took me a lot longer to complete than I had imagined. Mostly trial and error with the lemon skin, which i think i can do better. But the concept is there. Had some fun with decorating and lighting the bottle. This bottle has more of a matte finish than their typical clear bottles. With more time, I'd ad some lemon tree leaves for effect.
