A couple of posts ago I mentioned this Billabong ad featuring new dad Robbie J Walker. At the time I didn’t have the artwork to share, but thanks to Woody at Billabong I now have the file. This ad went to print in the current issue of Transfer magazine and New Zealand Snowboarder. This is one of those shots that at the time we shot it, we thought it was pretty cool and a lot of fun to set up and shoot, but I didn’t see it as an ad. Now after seeing it in print as a double page spread I like it a lot. It’s interesting that I’ve had a lot of comments from people telling me how much they like this shot as well. It’s weird how sometimes photos that you take don’t instantly grab you, but then somehow, almost a year after it was shot and it appears in print, it seems so different. Guess that says a lot for how much time is spent looking at images on a computer screen. I’d probably like a lot more of my shots if I printed them big right away. Also a big congratulations to Robbie and his lovely girlfriend Alice on the news of the birth of their first child.
