Miller Beer Advertising Campaign

A few months ago, I got an email thru my blog from a Marketing/Brand Agency in London regarding a then unknown to me advertsing campaign which was being held in Glasgow. They saw photographs of mine and wanted me to submit as many photographs relating to Glasgow as I could. So I did, I entered 16 and then I found out more details.

This unknown advertising campaign was actually for Miller Beer . There project was to wrap a huge building with a mosaic of the selected photos to represent Miller Beer in the heart of Glasgow (everyone knows the majority of drunks are in Glasgow lol).

This was a competition, I was actually honoured to get emailed by the Account Executive to apply for this. A few days ago, I found out 14 of the 16 I entered made it to the final cut and the result is that those images will be in the advertising campaign and will be seen on a side of a major building in Glasgow.

My face will be featured there on a side of a building (along with other photos that got choosen) lol but semi-hidden behind the main Mosaic image of a group of people partying, since people drink beer & party.

I’m uber excited at this, last night there was a VIP party with celebrities and free alcohol for the final unveiling, but I couldn’t make it sadly. I’m not sure of the exact location of the Mosaic, but was told its in the city centre and on the side of a huge building for everyone to see. When it has been put up, I’ll go take photos :D

I never believed that my photography was that great to be part of an Advertising Campaign, but maybe I’m mistaken! Last Year a Brazilian Photography Magazine contacted me regarding using some of my photos in their next issue, and an online newspaper already use some of my shots. So I’m uber excited :D

I got an email from Whitney Houston today as well saying she’s a fan of my blog:
