Unrestricted is my senior collection for completing the Applied Photography Minor at UW-Stout.
"Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way. With yoga, we become aware of how and where we are restricted - in body, mind, and heart - and how gradually to open and release these blockages. As these blockages are cleared, our energy is freed. We start to feel more harmonious, more at one with ourselves. Our lives begin to flow - or we begin to flow more in our lives."
- Cybele Tomlinson
She let the light shine in, and in return, shined brightly in a dark world.
Xenomorph is part of a figure studies project that will continue to be worked on. Showing that strength is beauty and our bodies are capable of whatever we set our minds to.
We are multi-dimensional beings, that when stripped down to the core, shine at our finest.
Finding the calm in the chaos, finding beauty in strength.
Some Styles Change
Our concept was working with Barbasol's long, almost 100 year, history in the industry by juxtaposing fashion from 1919 and 2015 to show that beards are still in style today as they were when the product originated. This advertisement is an attempt to access the younger market because so many people see Barbasol as "Grandpa's shaving cream" and we wanted to change that perception of the company.
Skinny Girl Cocktails
Our concept was working with Skinny Girl Cocktail's natural, low calorie ingredients. This advertisement is aimed at adult women who want to "have their cake and eat it too."
For this ad campaign, we wanted to keep the nature "simple." Simple Sports is a small town shop that makes sure all local outdoor enthusiasts have a place to go for their needs. Providing customers with many services, we decided to focus on bike repair, skate sharpening and board waxing. A campaign that shows you how simple it is to get these services done in Menomonie, WI.
