I was recently sent a large newspaper-like magazine in the mail. At first, I was unsure of what it was promoting. Gorgeous people, gorgeous clothes, gorgeous photography?? Hmmmmm, Ah HA! Chris Sanders, a New York City commercial-based photographer, takes incredibly brilliant stills. Taking lifestyle photos, he's able to capture a lot more emotion and intimacy. Take a look at his site - he also has downloadable PDFs from which to get inspired. I will definitely be using his shots in some AD comps.
