Apparently a big time photog on the East Coast (who shall remain nameless) accused me of being "too commercial" LOL I can see how my work could be used to sell a product but at the same time I see myself as an artist and rebel who starves too often for not being commercial. Yeah the pics are bright and colorful but that's because I like comic books LOL
Oh dude, totally agree. Trust me, I wasn't trying to bring your art down to a magazine page advertisement. It is a GREAT photo and I totally dig all the elements of the image. It just has a quality that could sell guitar cases, guitars, goth clothing, alternative music, maybe even be an invite to a rock n roll fetish party. It's just an all around cool shot.
Oh I am not offended. I like advertising honestly. I have a huge folder of just ads from the 50's, 60's and 70's that fascinate me. Even for like RC Cola and normal stuff. I just thought it funny that another photog would look at that way.
