Instagrams from Calgary: Nikki Ormerod Shoots with Brad Connell from WAX

by Westside on July 22, 2011

Last week Nikki Ormerod shot a neat little campaign for Mitchell Eye Centre with the agency WAX out of Calgary. The art director was Brad Connell and boy is he a bundle of fun. Here he is wearing the prop glasses and looking a little… awkward (all on purpose).

If you’re following us on Facebook (and you should be), you’ve already seen a couple of references to this shoot. Here’s a diptych of an outtake and a BTS shot of Derek Shapton as talent:

Art Director Brad also got some nifty Instagram behind the scenes shots that looked great:

I know we’re all fans of our iPhone photography so I asked Brad to share some of his favourite snaps. Turns out he’s quite the aficionado. He refered me to the site Objective Scenes where he is a guest blogger. From there I found these two gems:

Of this last one Brad explains:

My wife drives kind of fast. So one day I started taking pictures of the people we passed. I liked the way they looked in a grid on my camera roll so I took a bunch of them that had similar driver side window proportions and made a bunch of diptics with them.

Thanks for sharing Brad. If you haven’t had enough behind the scenes from this shoot (final hero shots require some interesting compositing- we’ll share shortly), you can watch the time lapse:
