Atlanta Lifestyle Advertising Campaign Production & Photography | Dasani Sparkling Water Advertising Campaign | Coca-Cola

When we made our goals for 2018, Coca-Cola was at the top of our list of companies we wanted to work with.  

We are so grateful that we can say we have photographed and produced a total of 4 campaigns for Coca-Cola over the summer.  Soon we will be sharing more images and a behind the scenes video from the most recent two campaigns.

Here are some of the images from an advertising campaign we produced & photographed for Dasani Sparkling.  This Dasani Sparkling advertising campaign is currently live in Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Tampa with more than 100 billboards and bus shelters. 

Thank you so much to our cast and crew of 35 for these two days of shooting.

Atlanta Lifestyle Advertising Campaign Photography and Production | Dasani | Coca-Cola

Here are some images from an advertising campaign we produced & photographed with a cast and crew of 35+ over two days of shooting on location in Atlanta for Dasani. 

There were plenty of challenges with this production.  When the primary subject of your photos is less than 12 inches tall, clear, and reflective you have to get creative.  With so many talented people surrounding us we were able to come up with creative solutions, and we had fun doing it.  Thanks to all involved!

We are so thankful to have the opportunity to collaborate with Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics to create a music video for the first single "Broken Woman" off of their new album "State of All Things".  It is a conceptual story of Broken Woman at a Ruby Velle & the Soulphonics concert and utilizes cinemagraphs to feature her broken-ness.  We were stoked that RV&S bought into our crazy idea, and we are so glad you are checking it out.  Enjoy!

atlanta editorial photography | Dreaming of Leaving

Dreaming of Leaving is a fashion editorial piece experimenting with a mix of modern and vintage fashion in historical but timeless sets. 

The models are captured in dream-like states peering out of train windows or dazed in thought. While they may be dreaming of leaving a current place or situation, the absence of others on their transit route hints that this moment is fictional as well. 

Color played an important role in this shoot as evident through the location, wardrobe, and overall mood of the images.

Atlanta Editorial Photography: St. Beauty

**UPDATE: Our image made it all the way to a huge billboard in Times Square!  See the last image in this post **

Team Hales had the chance to photograph St. Beauty, an up and coming girl duo signed with Wondaland, for the release of their latest album. Not only did we shoot promo stills in the studio and on Arabia Mountain, but we also got to make some fun gifs and moving images. 

To learn more about St. Beauty and hear some of their music check out this article in Pop Sugar.

atlanta product photography | Matchstic, a branding agency

We have been working with Matchstic for a few years now shooting their case studies.  Here are some that we've done recently and love how they turned out.  Working with and shooting paper can be pretty tricky so don't be fooled by how simple some of these shots look.  They took a lot of planning and creativity from the branding team and a lot of lighting from us.  Oh and if you need a brand refresh just go straight to Matchstic . 

atlanta advertising photography: Brantley Gilbert for Ford

Check out this advertising shoot we did with country singing celebrity Brantley Gilbert for Ford Truck Month.  Ford reached out to us to shoot their headline banner on their Ford Music site (the first image below).  We went up to Brantley's place to ride around in his F-150 and take some photos.  We landed on this place right off a river nearby and decided to set up camp for a shoot.  They also filmed a piece interviewing Brantley while we were there.  Scroll down for our latest atlanta celebrity photography session.

atlanta product photography | Atlanta History Center Artifacts

If you haven't been to the Atlanta History center to check out their exhibits you're missing out!  As native Atlantans we are so impressed with their collection of Atlanta based artifacts.  From Hank Aaron's baseball bat, to the sword used on set in the show, The Walking Dead, to the original car side set up used at the iconic Varsity restaurant, they have all things Atlanta covered.  We had the chance to photograph some of their coolest artifacts.  You may see some around town on billboards or MARTA buses.  Let us know if you spot one!

atlanta advertising photographer: Shaquille O'Neal

The legendary NBA all star Shaquille O'Neal shot for Responsitlity.Org advertising campaign.

We were on set at the Lawrenceville PD the day Shaq was filming a commercial.  We had the opportunity to shoot with him for some still shots for the campaign as well as behind the scenes on the film shoot.  You may see our work on billboards or on the side of a bus for the Drive Like you Give a *#$% Campaign!  

 

atlanta commercial photographer: High Museum

When the High Museum calls you to figure out how to shoot a very large, very heavy, and stationary sculpture as it sits on their museum floor you figure out how to do it!  All of the below images were shot as they sit on display in the museum.  With some strategic backdrop placement, lighting, and post production photo shop work we were able to make them float on white or gray for their digitalization project.

atlanta commercial photography | Mercedes Benz Stadium Construction

Being able to shoot the Mercedes Benz Stadium going up from almost the very beginning has been one of the greatest experiences of my photo career. What a way to get to be a part of something so inherently 'Atlanta.' I was there shooting when the workers signed and installed the final structural beam and when they installed the first seats alongside Arthur Blank himself all the way to the first Falcons pre-game played in the stadium.  This blog is just a tiny glimpse of the timeline from start to finish.

atlanta commercial photography: Book for Westside Works

We have been wanting to announce this project for so long!  We had the opportunity to work with Westside Works and Mercedes Benz Stadium to tell the stories of some of the workers who helped construct the stadium and put it all in to a book!  In the book we follow the days of about 40 people who have graduated from the Westside Works program to learn skills to work on a job site.  Check out our latest Atlanta commercial photography project below!

atlanta commercial photography: Westside Works and Mercedes Benz Stadium

Westside Works is a program for residents of the west side of Atlanta to learn job related skills and help them gain employment upon graduation of their class.  We were honored to photograph some of the graduates and interview them to learn their stories.  Everyone here went through the program and graduated with a job working at the Mercedes Benz Stadium construction project.  We shot them on the job site to showoff the skills they learned through the program.  Together with Westside works we helped produce a book of these images plus many more.

atlanta editorial photography: Travel to Taiwan

We love spending time in other countries learning about their culture and history.  Taiwan has no shortage of either of those things!  Here are just a few images from our trip there earlier this year.  Walking to see the sights and capturing people in their element are some of our favorite things.
