Ruud Baan photographs the newest ad campaign for Johnnie Walker. Scottish actor Hamish Clark stars in the ads promoting Johnnie Walker’s five distinct whisky flavors. The label’s whisky blends come in black, red, blue, green, and gold. The label color is reflected in the background and styling in the ads. Clark was tasked with acting out the personality of each color in his expressions and gestures. The difference between the flavors is quite nuanced which created a challenge for the photographer and the actor to express each blend’s unique flavor.
