    I recently noticed his work as well although his style such as it is appears to be straight perspectives and minimalism with best practices photo technique. No wide angles or muddled tones, medium format with careful low radius sharpening.

    In other words very “clean”. Isn’t your current work similar?

    You could start with clean subject matter, a trip to Palm Springs perhaps? I think he is very good at recognizing good locations.

    It is refreshing and its utter perfection and cleanliness almost makes me want to do advertising again (with all those dirty pigs).

    i always wonder how they compose the persons into a picture with this exact lightning.

    for example - it is just a snapshoot with my xpro2 ... (35mm on fullframe) - some minor corrections in LR

    so how to fix the colors for perfect basic picture and how would you photograph a person in the studio to fit into this picture.
    how to check the correct colors (for this ad style) or things for fitting into this colorscheme of the basic picture.

    maybe you want to experiment with this picture and show me your results ;-) ?
