Parfumerie Guerlain splashed out the big bucks for this nearly six-minute spot shot on 35mm film on location in India. (NSFW: NUDITY) Directed by Bruno Aveillan, it takes epic creative license with the story of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan and the creation of the Taj Mahal, which was built for his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. No idea why an actress of Persian descent couldn't be summoned for the role, rather than Russian model Natalia Vodianova, but that's fashion for you.

This video made the rounds a few years ago and it seems to be making a resurgence once again on several photography & creative blogs. It may be long and the speaker presents his view from the point of a creative at a design company, but it's really worth the time to watch as most of what they talk about will apply to commercial photographers too.

Well over a year ago I worked on a men's fashion shoot late at night at a King Tut exhibit here in NYC. We loaded in to the museum at around 9:45 PM and shot until nearly 6:30 AM and then hauled all of our equipment out of the museum and back to the studio by 8:00 AM. During the course of the shoot everyone including the photographer started to slow down and lost energy. Bad things happen when the energy and the brain start to fade after midnight. Since it's been a year the pain of watching this has faded.
