THE JOEL GRIMES LOOK

Composite grunge photography, especially images related to sports, music or action lend themselves to what is known as the “Joel Grimes” look.  Joel is a well known SoCal photographer who photographs athletes, musicians and ordinary people in his Pasadena studio or on location and pastes their image into an artistic, desaturated, often gritty but creative urban or sports related background.

YOU DON’T NEED TO BE A YOUNG ATHLETE OR MODEL TO LOOK GREAT

If you’re into swimming, play an instrument, sing, have a motor cycle, boxing gloves, pump iron, have great tats, like to pose sassy or with swagger or do anything physical and would like to try your hand as the subject in a grunge composite photo shoot let’s get together.  These are not on location shoots.  The subject (you) is  photographed in front of a blank wall or my portable white background that can be set up anyplace we agree on.  The subject is lit by left and right grid soft boxes from just behind and one center light above the camera.    Software is used to place your image in an imaginative setting that could be anything from a dilapidated factory to a football field.  The final look is created by Photoshop edits.

IF YOU’D LIKE YOUR IMAGE IN A CREATIVE COMPOSITE IMAGE GET IN TOUCH!

My goal is to practice and gain a level of perfection with this style of imagery.  This is for fun and no charge to you.  Worst case you get a few bad photos and best case you get an amazing poster size rendition of you in your best wild side environment.
