Erik Almås + Staged Photography Blog

Erik was recently featured on Staged Photography. The feature, titled “My relative didn’t give me a camera when I was 12,” discusses how Erik started his career in Photography:

“An image is really good when it evokes some kind of emotional response from the viewer. A photograph can be great to me in many ways, without meaning much to other people who look at it. I can love an image for the cool way it was lit or some new technical achievement.”

Erik Almas – A Cohesive Visual Language – Print + Motion

Erik’s work captures a cohesive story through both still and motion imagery, applying a similar visual language to each.  While shooting for Westin, Erik was able to create short spots that matched the tone and style of the images.  By crafting a tonal pallet prior to shooting, he is able to create campaigns like “Big 6,” where an aesthetic is painted across the ads.  This cross platform consistency creates a single brand voice within a campaign, highlighting a visual identity and tone to better capture a viewer’s attention.
