Shadowplay’s “Animal Head” Series Presents a Unique Twist on Portraits

Shadowplay, an advertising photography and film studio based in Cheltenham,UK, created quite a unique portrait series for a recent client. Their client, GillFoxJames, approached them to create some quirky portraits that could be used for their offices as big prints and also online. They wanted quirky, but also something that related to the personality of the sitter. Shadowplay decided to ask each staff member “if they were an animal, which would they be?”, a question that produced some interesting and varied results.

Shadowplay combined images they photographed of each individual with stock imagery of the chosen animals. In post the two were blended to create an animal head that represented each member of GillFoxJames staff.
