Financial Planning

Financial planning is beautifully illustrated in this photograph of a lighthouse rising high above a tossing sea of money made from waves of dollars. There can be no mistaking the idea behind the photo as lighthouses are such an iconic symbol of guidance, navigation and security, and dollars are a de facto symbol of all things financial. Creating waves out of dollar bills is perfect for showing the turbulent nature of markets that makes financial planning such an important investment decision. While the messages of financial turbulence and the ebb and flow of investment success are evident in the waves, the image is bright and cheerful with a summer blue sky as a backdrop. The result is an investment image that is positive in nature and fun to look at. This sea of money image is a horizontal, but can easily be cropped to square or vertical and always retaining ample copy space for art directors and designers to add desired headlines, mastheads and copy. 

Investment Advice Imagery

Investment advice images that really stand out and communicate a concept in a compelling manner, such as this transfixing image of a lighthouse amid a tossing sea of money, are in constant demand. This ocean of dollars image, perfect for drawing attention to products and services that help individuals and businesses manage money, make intelligent investment decisions, and successfully reap the rewards of smart investment strategies. In this image waves of dollars toss up a froth of coins adding an element of motion and drama. This is an investment image that can't help but bring a smile to one's face.

Investment Banking

Investment banking, insurance, lending institutions, mortgage banks, and financial planners can all use this image as a visual metaphor for the products and services they offer individuals, small businesses, and large corporate entities. Including the lighthouse in the sea of money creates a sense of safety and goodwill that permeates the photo. This is a feel good, positive and optimistic image about investment, banking, and financial planning. Finally, it is an image of success...who wouldn't want to find themselves in such a vast ocean of money?

To create this financial stock photo i first paid a visit to my bank and secured over a thousand one dollar bills. In my studio I laid them out in various configurations and photographed them. I then used Photoshop to composite the dollar scenes into waves. I also photographed some coins to add in as the froth at the top of waves. In my photographic archives I found an image of a lighthouse and again used Photoshop to insert it into the waves. I have many sky shots in my photo library and used a summer sky for the backdrop. That was all there was to it! Of course, it took a day to photograph the dollars and coins, two days to do the Photoshop work, and a day to drive to and photograph the lighthouse (thirty years ago). I do believe the time resources put into making this investment image are well worth it as I ended up with a unique and compelling image that can offer a visual metaphor for so many important financial concepts.
