Exxon "America's Energy" Campaign

Recent work for Exxon's "America's Energy" campaign. It’s pretty rare when you get the opportunity to shoot a beautiful, long form, medium format, black & white project these days. This is a project where it felt more like making art rather than working on an advertising campaign. I spent three weeks in the steaming hot Texan oil fields photographing medium format portraits of Exxon workers of all kinds. This was one of the those great projects were the creative direction was incredible and inspirational We also were given the time to make great work. I loved this collaboration with Justin Walsh and the rest of the team at BBDO. It’s so great to see beautiful work at the end of three weeks in the field.
