25 years ago, I didn’t download stock imagery. We went to the trouble to cast even our print campaigns, and hire a photographer. The “Odd are we’ll lend the money” campaign was all shot that way, by local lensmaster Gib Ford, on a white limbo background. The black and white prints were sent to an engraver to knock out the backgrounds completely. It was a whole lot more fun than rummaging through some stock image website, and we could control it more. We hired local actors, and either grabbed the props ourselves or hired a prop person. Motorcyle Mama is the late great Virgina Metz, who was my go-to for local talent. The convertible was owned by Sherril Nelson (I think I got his name right) and that’s him standing by it. The crazy piano guy is Curtis Vance, one of our account executives. Good times. Won a few awards, too.
I’m the world’s worst at picking my own stuff to show. But I did manage to pull together a few things. Most are just as they were published, but a few are like “director’s cuts”, with my own improvements. Some things are unpublished, shown just for fun. If you see something you like, drop me a line and let me know. Also, check out more current work at broderickadvertising.com or the social media links below. I am solely responsible for errors and/or omissions, but— I take zero responsibility for them, ’cause life’s too short to worry about such things.
