On the off-chance that you haven’t been-to or subscribe-to, A Photo Editor, a blog founded by former photo editor Rob Haggert, do yourself a creative favor and check-in there. You will also find there a column by art consultant Suzanne Sease entitled: Great Images in Still Advertising. Recently Suzanne interviewed Shawn regarding his thoughts on clients, photography and how he brought his craftsman-like POV to photographic life on a campaign concepted to raise awareness for a National Geographic sponsored King Tut exhibit — “What would you bring with you in the afterlife?” The ads meant to generate awareness for a touring exhibition which is visiting its final cities before returning to Egypt forever.
