Justin Walker for Grubhub and Seamless (Or is it Grubhub Seamless?)

Posted by Workbook on 07/24/2014 — Filed under:  FeaturesHeadlinePhotography
From subways to buses to billboards, photographer Justin Walker’s recent work with new campaigns for online food delivery services Grubhub and Seamless can be seen prominently in cities across the country this summer. While Justin has been shooting for Seamless since its rebrand four years ago, creating two unique looks for similar companies that have recently merged (Grubhub and Seamless officially merged in August 2013) presented an interesting new challenge. Here’s what he had to say about it:
“It was interesting trying to approach two different brands that sell the same service and try to create two different visual identities. We worked on creating images that could be used in many different ways and on many different media platforms, from the side of a bus to the visual design of their iPhone app. I worked with two great internal creative directors, one from each side of GrubHub/Seamless as they still operate in separate cities (GrubHub is based in Chicago and Seamless is based in New York).”

Inspired by the Rain

Posted by Workbook on 07/22/2014 — Filed under:  FeaturesGalleriesHeadlinePhotography
By Scott Lowden

Anyone that knows me would assume my inspiration is the sun behind someone’s head. Of course sometimes we have to embrace adversity and try to pull inspiration from what could be your Achilles' heel. Rain has the potential to ruin an exterior shoot, and after many, many lucky years of never having rain or weather issues during shoots, it seems lately that it always rains part of a day, if not the entire day.

There’s more to this story over at House of Current’s inspiration blog, where I was guest blogger last Friday, but the short version is that I embraced the rain during a shoot 2 weeks ago and ended up with some dynamic images, not in spite of the rain, but because of it. Thanks to Chloe, Maddie, Jennifer, Aerial, Ed, Wendy and…the rain.

Michael Weschler: Tattoo Rescue with Sammy the Contractor & Joey Tattoo

Posted by Workbook on 07/18/2014 — Filed under:  FeaturesHeadlinePhotography
Great tattoo artists possess extreme skill & a sense of restraint as they channel their expertly controlled violence into art. Some are more trusted than others, so before you get drunk & tattooed, consider the consequences & book a professional. Of course, if this message hasn't reached you in time and you need help removing a failed facial tattoo, there's an app for that to the rescue!
