Gorilla In The Board Room

A gorilla sits at the head of the board room table in this funny look at power in the corporate world. The gorilla is a symbol of strength, power and brute force and makes a great metaphor for such qualities in business management...for better or worse. In this picture the huge ape has his right hand out on the back of an empty chair which can be interpreted as the offering of a seat to the viewer, and offer to be the right hand man in the corporate hierarchy. This image can also be an indication of the less than subtle exercise of power in the corporate world. This is a CEO that one does not want to mess around with! This gorilla image can be used to show the dominance of a CEO or president as well as his powerful position within the business world. This image can even be used to refer to powerful political bosses creating back room deals or manipulating military industrial complex.


Funny Gorilla Photos

Funny gorilla photos can add impact to any visual presentation be it an editorial layout, advertisement or promotion. When we see a primate in an environment that we are not used to seeing it in we naturally get our curiosity piqued and want to read the accompanying text and message. The unusual juxtaposition of a gorilla in an office also insures that we will more effectively remember the image and product or service. This stock photo was created with the flexibility to be used vertically, horizontally or square and with copy space for headlines and text. I photographed the gorilla in a zoo. The board room was created by combining a desk and chairs with a separate wall image. The whole process, including stripping out the gorilla, took me about five hours to complete. Only time will tell if this becomes a successful stock photo with multiple sales.


Gorilla As Symbol Of Corporate Power And Management And Leadership

When a great ape is used to symbolize corporate power, management and leadership it may be either an indication of strong leadership, or of the unrefined use of brute force. With this gorilla photo the image can go either way depending on the message accompanying the image. Gorillas, as primates are given credit for human like qualities and high intelligence. The ultimate "monkey", King Kong, for example, was also given the human qualities of love and compassion to go along with his super-sized strength. Overall I believe we tend to look at Gorillas as more on the noble side, yet also one of the strongest, most powerful, and aggressive of creatures. We are all familiar with the silver back gorilla who looks out for his tribe, and it is an easy step to view a corporate CEO in such a light...perhaps along the lines of Steve Jobs of Apple computer. In a similar vein this is an image about success and achievement in climbing the corporate ladder. We shouldn''t leave out the possibility of using this gorilla photo to show the danger, adversity and challenge of dealing with entrenched power figures in the global business world. In fact, there is even an element of conservation and environmental responsibility in this image which can be viewed as a force of nature gaining traction in the board room as evidenced by a gorilla as a power executive.
