Artist Friday - Lars Topelmann

Lars Topelmann is a photographer in Portland, Oregon and has a serious sense of humor. His portraits are fun, quirky and sometimes downright odd but there is a playfulness to these characters which he captures. Lars has worked on advertising campaigns for the Bahamas, 10 Cane Rum, Converse, NIke, REI, Pacifico and Visa to name a few. His photographs really represent the true nature of the creative idea and in my opinion they bring the ad to the next level to tell the full story. Just looking through his portfolio you can see he loves what he does and has fun doing it. My favorite part of his photography really is the subject matter he captures and how I smile at the photos, I truly enjoy his work and talent.
