)-- Acclaimed Celebrity Photographer Jason Joyce Creates Out-of-this-world Look.
Corbis (www.corbis.com), a leading visual media provider for the creative community, today announced the addition of futuristic sports imagery to its collection. The imagery by acclaimed photographer Jason Joyce is featured along with photography of iconic athletes, contemporary champions and action shots from a host of leading sporting events on Corbis’ sports microsite www.corbis.com/sports.
The new imagery from Joyce features women fencers, swimmers, archers, weight-lifters, soccer players and others in high concept futuristic settings. The images have been carefully retouched to give the photos a clean, vibrant and surreal look.
The concept and storyboard for the shoot in London was conceived and managed by Corbis Art Director Martin Yates. Joyce designed the set-up and lighting for the shoot so the images would be suitable for the post-production team to manipulate. The retouching was handled at Corbis, and a 3-D designer created the backgrounds using state-of-the-art 3-D imaging software.
“Our creative research consistently finds that there is a lot of demand for imagery featuring women in sports, and this new collection celebrates female athletes in a way that is undoubtedly compelling and unique,” said Martin Yates, Art Director, Corbis. “The atmosphere for the shoot was inspired by science fiction movies like Aeon Flux and transports us to another time and place.”
Jason Joyce lives and works in London. He began his career as a fashion photographer before moving into celebrity portraiture. His work has been published in world-leading publications including Interview, Esquire, Harpers Bazaar and Q. Recently he has shot advertising campaigns for Mother and McCann Erickson advertising agencies in the UK.
"With the summer games in Beijing approaching, we wanted to create something fresh and different that appeals to creatives looking for an alternative vision,” said Joyce. “I’m really proud of this work and the way it breaks down preconceived notions of beauty and athletics.”
