Over the weekend I received an email from my good buddy, Nick Vedros. It contained one sentence and the animated image above.
"Shot at the end of yesterday's long project…of the client, agency, creatives, and crew."
Here's why I chose to share it in a blog post:
Think about some of the bigger projects you've been involved in. Maybe you were part of a team covering an event or an unusually large wedding with make-up artists and hair stylists, a couple of videographers and a few photographers. Or, perhaps you were working on a more commercial shoot like the one Nick shared above. How much fun would it be to have one classic image of everyone involved in the project?
I'm not sure whose idea the image above was, but if you know Nick, he's all about having fun. He's a work-hard-play-hard artist and every session for his team, and his clients becomes memorable. Making memories is his signature. And, he never compromises on the quality of anything - from his images to the relationships with clients, associates and friends! Check out his website to see more of his work.
So, the next time you're part of a team working on anything, not necessarily involved in photography, remember to bring everybody together for one last image - the memory-maker of working together! It's a classic image and whether you save it for a Throwback Thursday post in the future or use it for blog content to talk about an event you're involved in, it's the perfect way to wrap things up.
P.S. By the way, that's Nick on the bottom row, the first one vertical in blue jeans and a blue shirt.
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
