Fantastic Commercial Photo Studios

Jill Harness

Some people have a negative opinion of commercial photography, mistakenly believing it is not an art, and is merely a way to showcase the product being sold. This is a grossly unfair conception. While some commercial images are no more than a product picture, some are imaginative and exceptionally artistic. WebUrbanist has a great collection of the works of 18 cool commercial photography studios.

Carioca Studios created the shocking photos above with the hope that it would bring attention to the plight of children in Romania. The photos were part of the Save the Children project, whose aim was to help protect the rights of kids in the area.
