Buyer review complete, Marketplace review

The photo would be used for a Canadian client in the Pharmaceutical marketplace.

Looking for groups of people on piggy back. The photo needs to be taken in daylight and outdoors. Preferably on grass, in a park, or a location that looks like it could be anywhere (no deserts, no famous landmarks in the bkgrd, etc). It needs to look current, contemporary with a light hearted mood and feel 'real' (see tear sheet example attached-something really close to this is the desired outcome). The age range should be young adult to 30ish (no kids or parents). Nothing larger than a group of six people.

Based on the reference, wardrobe and clothing colour is directional for all but ideally a green shirt and blue jeans for the 'hero' out front. We are looking for a green shirt in foreground because the brand colours are actually lime green and blue. The idea is to show a patient who is able to get back to normal and enjoy some fun activities with friends. We want to show exertion but not in a stereotypical athletic sporting environment. This product is marketed in a competitive marketplace so the patient also embodies the brand image and while we want to show our 'hero' guy enjoying life again we also want to show him out front in the race, even in this informal kind of set up.

Landscape format is preferred over portrait, but a variety of additional complimentary images could possibly be considered so feel free to mix it up a bit if the opportunity presents itself. Any additional shots in the series that may be considered would be purchased separately.

1 year ago - I'm heading out this evening to get some shots! We'll see what I can come up with.
1 year ago - Tried one more from that set with a little more energy. May do another shoot tomorrow as well
1 year ago - Hey, Scott... I don't know how tight your schedule is, but it might be helpful for everyone if the deadline could be extended a bit, to past the next weekend? Looks like the weather might be workable for the northeast then. :)
1 year ago - Great. Looking forward to it Jake and Pat. To all - the couple out front should be dominant in your composition, the focal point. The reference I've provided really does speak for itself. Capture that spirit and engaging look and impact and you're there.
1 year ago - I'll take a look and edit another one a bit later.
1 year ago - I'm setting up another shoot. I'll take everything into reference and hopefully come out with a great photo
1 year ago - Thanks Patrick, These are really close! Are there more in the series? Be great to have some closer to camera, more energy etc as per reference.
1 year ago - Great! Looking forward to seeing the results :)
1 year ago - I'm also going to try and shoot one tonight. Just waiting to hear from a couple people
1 year ago - I did nominate one photo from the latest submission series because it did show a race with people in the foreground and people in the background, but I don't think we are close enough to what we need yet. Hoping you can pull off something great tonight!
1 year ago - Yes still looking for something different that the submissions so far. I would really like to capture the energy and composition and lighting of the reference photo provided.
1 year ago - Looking to shoot tonight! Great shot Jake!! Scot are you looking for anything different or more aligned with brand than the current shots uploaded so far?
1 year ago - Thank you so much for the nomination! I
1 year ago - That sounds good Andrew. Sorry, I'll be off line some of this weekend. Yes, I can always do some colour shifting in post too if it is the appropriate colour of shirt to work with. Weather still looking good out there?
1 year ago - Yep, Brandon. I keep thinking how much easier it would be if I lived in southern California! ;)
1 year ago - Yeah Vicki, pouring down rain. Moving to Ohio hasn't been good for my photo career.
1 year ago - What do you think Scott? Get 3 couples racing through the field with one in jeans and a t shirt (green if possible) if not I can change color myself in post.
1 year ago - Gnna set up a similar shot this weekend for you guys. What type of attire would be appropriate? I have a gathering for a workout happening Monday night and could maybe have one person in jeans as the hero but most would be in t shirts and shorts. Sound good? Setting is large green field at sunset
1 year ago - I hear ya, Brandon! The weather forecast for the weekend looking too friendly here!
1 year ago - Great - looking forward to seeing your stuff Brandon.
1 year ago - I have a photoshoot lined up this weekend. Hopefully the weather cooperates.
1 year ago - @sbradford thank you very much Scott for the invite ! I am very inspired by this request!
1 year ago - @sbradford Yes, it definitely helps get a better idea for the scene and purpose. Thanks a lot for the clarification and quick response!
1 year ago - This product is marketed in a competitive marketplace so the patient also embodies the brand image and while we wanted to show our 'hero' guy enjoying life again we also wanted to show him out front in the race, even in this informal kind of set up. Hope these last 3 posts help.
1 year ago - We are looking for a green shirt in foreground because the brand colours are actually lime green and blue. The idea is to show a patient who is able to get back to normal and enjoy some fun activities with friends. We want to show exertion but not in a stereotypical athletic sporting environment.
1 year ago - Lol, yeah, I hear ya. But the fact that the reference tear has a guy in a green shirt is more of a coincidence. Wardrobe and clothing colour is directional for all but ideally a green shirt and blue jeans for the 'hero' out front.
1 year ago - @sbradford, you want submitted shots to be similar to the reference photo, even down to the clothing worn?
1 year ago - A little extra detail for shot setup: Ideally this would appear as per reference with the guy in front is wearing a green shirt (more like a lime green shirt) and blue jeans. It is like a fun race.
1 year ago - SW will be speaking to the client to ensure that the several young couples is the desired outcome.
1 year ago - Right on Vicki! Don't see a number next to shooters. Look forward to seeing everyone's shots.
1 year ago - This is rad
1 year ago - Thank you for the invite!
1 year ago - @gris, I can see it just like any other request.
1 year ago - Thanks Scott for the invite. Will this be a private request or will you open it up to more than one shooter?
1 year ago - Fantastic request! Will take me a few days to coordinate with that many people but should be able to do it! 2-3 couples right?
