ROBB LONG shoots industrial image library

ROBB LONG IMAGING shoots industrial image library for WAYTEK WIRE INC, in Minnesota.

We were called on to shoot extensive image content for WAYTEK WIRE’s expansive marketing needs.

I got to run around the active warehouse capturing the essence of the real people working a job they truly enjoy. My crew and I set up and started shooting right away, following the flow of the product making it’s way through the completed order, from manufacturing to having it shipped out. I find it personally rewarding to bring my creativity to a business while telling their interesting story which always includes it’s most important resource, it’s employees.

The all-day shoot went super smooth and we captured so many great images resulting in a very pleased client. 

“I recently had the pleasure of working with Robb Long and it was truly a pleasure. When trying to make an important decision on who I wanted for a full-day shoot capturing our employees at work, including our services and faciliteis, Robb made it easy! Robb’s passion for what he does is very evident and it comes through in his fantastic communication skills, priorities and photography work. A great person to work with, high quality photo and video – a job done right!”

ROBB LONG shoots extensive image library for law firm

ROBB LONG shoots extensive image library for law firm. Here is a sampling of some of our favorites out of the hundreds of images made available in the library. Robb shot these over a course of one day in an active law firm capturing real attorneys in meetings, working at their desks, in the break room, board room and other spots around the office where they hang out.

"I love the fast pace of shooting image libraries like this, the lighting is challenging and staying out of the way, acting like a fly on the wall while still being able to direct people around the office is key to getting that decisive moment and as many images for their library as possible. The client was super happy with all the usable images we captured for them."

Robb Long for National Buffalo Wild Wings Campaign

 We were recently contacted by space150 (Minneapolis) to help create a series of images for a Buffalo Wild Wings National digital campaign #FOOTBALLRICH which released just before the start of the 2015 NFL Football Season. The National digital campaign is designed to drive viewers to flaunt their football riches by taking a photo of themselves at Buffalo Wild Wings locations "living large during the whole football season." Buffalo Wild Wings "is the football destination for those who enjoy the finer wings." Folks visiting B-Dubs can hashtag their Instagram photos with #FootballRich for a chance to be featured on the Buffalo Wild Wings website. Check back soon as we showcase several other images from this fun National digital campaign as more roll out onto the Buffalo Wild Wings website here.

Shooting this project was a truly great experience. The opportunity to connect with the space150 team that enthusiastically contributed to ideas for each image during the shoot was at once a creative environment with us working together to get the ideas integrated and shots with impact. In maintaining my stylized look and pushing to refine the finishing of the images, I called upon Anthony Morrow of PXL.HOUSE to collaborate on the project. Morrow and I explored several directions until finding that balance of my personal style and a dynamic fit for the fun sports enthusiast campaign message. (Morrow and I are currently working on a few self assignment projects we can't wait to show that will carry this look through the rest of my work. He and his Lead Retoucher George McCardle are true visionaries whom have helped me to push my images to maximum awesomeness)

"We had a blast helping photographer Robb Long create and refine a stylized look for his work on the Buffalo Wild Wings #FOOTBALLRICH campaign. We helped Robb strike a balance between his personal style and 
 visuals that would fit the fun sports enthusiast campaign message

Robb Long Imaging for Galleria Edina, MN

Got to shoot some fashion images for the GALLERIA in Edina, MN for one of my favorite clients Style-Architects out of Minneapolis. Style-Architects wanted to capture images for GALLERIA point-of-sale, e-mail marketing and website banner ads. I love working with Christina and her team, they bring a lot of talent on the set and love collaborating with me to get the perfect shots. The photo-shoot was great, the talent hopped in knowing exactly what to do, her hair and make-up team did an amazing job, and the styling was on point! I look forward to working with them again.

A few words from the client - "
"We were tasked with pulling together a campaign for Galleria's semi-annual Clearance Experience with less than a week's notice. We immediately brought on Robb, as we had worked with him on many editorial shoots in the past so he understood the fast pace and last minute deadlines. He captured our vision and concept exceptionally and made a campaign that was produced in under a week look as though we had months of preparation behind it!" - Style-Architects

Robb Long for Fab Defense

I recently had the opportunity to shoot a really cool conceptual assignment with a local ad agency for its client Fab Defense. I remember playing with little green plastic toy army soldiers all the time when I was a kid. This project let me re-live my childhood again.
 Our job at Robb Long Imaging was to photograph a real man and turn him into a traditional toy plastic soldier holding a decked out real gun. I feel we accomplished that goal as did the client.

Here's an explanation of the project: "Research showed that FAB Defense had a loyal following among serious shooters around the world. What they lacked was brand recognition in the U.S. market. In an effort to change that, an ad series featuring FAB's new tagline of "Keep It Real" was created to tell shooters that if you buy gear from anyone else, you're only "playing" tactical. To illustrate that point, we relied on imagery of a real man made to look like traditional green plastic army men with the soldiers in each ad holding an AR decked out with FAB gear. "
I enlisted the help of Shannon Amos of Amos Styles to give me some pointers on what to do to make this guy look more like a plastic soldier; beside the obvious step of painting him green, she recommended plasti-dip. Here's what she said about the final image on a recent Facebook post along with a behind the scenes video.

"This is creativity and drive in Photography( And a super Happy Client) Robb Long and I became pals on Facebook and over the past year he has reached out about some consultation with wardrobe or props of some of his shoots. I always offer my best answers and try and send him in the best direction I can. He blew it out of the water with his latest shoot for his client. I was not 100% how the Plasti Dip REAL "toy" soldier would play out. Robb nailed this from the photography to the retouching....all in his garage" - Shannon Amos (Amos styles)
