Commercial photographer and filmmaker Dan Bannister matched scenic archive photographs with green screen portraits. The result is a series of ethereal and evocative portraits of lighthouse keepers. We had a little chat with Dan to learn how he did it.
Even though in his professional career, he has focused mainly on portraiture and lifestyle advertising work, when going through his archive, Dan Bannister realized that he had a lot of landscape images – of lighthouses in particular.
Growing up on the east coast of Canada, Dan has always had an affinity for the sea and the characters that live and work on the Atlantic Ocean. Recognizing this, a new idea for a personal project arose.
