Nadav Kander is the arguably the best commercial advertising photographer around. His clients include Nike, Puma, Levi's, GM, Etc. His work is the perfect mix of art and commerce.

"I don't do advertising work to fund other projects ~ if it's great work then working in advertising is as good as doing my own personal projects. What I love about advertising, and why I still want to do it, are the people involved and that three weeks later, 20 million people are going to see the pictures ~ that is really exciting" Nadav Kander
