GillFoxJames approached Shadowplay to create some unconventional portraiture pieces that could be used in their offices as big prints and online. Traditional staff portraiture/heads shots never offer the most stimulating visuals – so GillFoxJames were keen to take a sideways look at it. They were after staff portraiture that was both quirky and yet still related to the personality of the sitter.
After some thought the decision was made to ask each staff member ‘if they were an animal, which would they be’. A question which produced some interesting and varied results.
Portraits of the folk at GFJ were photographed and then stock imagery of the chosen animals pulled together. In post the two were blended to create an animal head that represented that member of staff.
