Ben Huh Can Has Cheezburger

It’s jobs like this that remind me why I love photography so much.  I laugh every time I look at this picture.  How many CEO’s would be willing to be buried in cat litter and let a cat walk around their face?  Not many. Although, I did get the cat litter with the blue crystals so it smelled really nice.  It also serves as a good example of “you never know till you ask”.

Internet celebrity Ben Huh is the CEO and founder of the Cheezburger Network, the largest online humor network in the world.   They run 50 hilarious blogs including I Can Has Cheezburger, Fail Blog, There I Fixed It, Failbook, Engrish Funny, and on and on.  The first blog in the network was I Can Has Cheezburger which is a website dedicated to weird pictures of cat’s with pidgin-English captions.  Ironic, because Ben is super allergic to cats, and even more amazing he was willing to do this shoot.

I have been working on larger productions and building sets quite a bit lately, and I am loving it. It is pretty fulfilling to take a concept like this (as dreamed up by AD Benjamen Purvis) and come up with a solution to make the idea a reality.  A huge thank you goes out to Ben Huh (his personal blog is well worth the read)  and Jen from Cheezburger Network, Benjamen Purvis and Matt Halverson from Seattle Met and Michele and Deanna from BuzzBuilders who were so great through the entire process.

Here is a behind the scenes video of working with Ben, and how I put this shot together.
If you are not familiar with the hilarious blogs on the Cheezburger Network, definitely take a few minutes to check them out. You will find something to make you smile for at least a few minutes.
