Whose backside is this?

Whose backside is this?

Think Tank Broucher

Alright so it is unmistakably mine! This image was taken by my good friend Keith Talley last year about this time. We were in a small village in Sumatra, Indonesia. Think Tank liked the shot as it shows their modular system at work and asked if they could use it in their brochure. I never heard back after I sent them the high res image. Yesterday, when I was turning in my 5D for repair to Click n Snap, I began showing a mentor client of mine some Think Tank bags and systems. Matthew Chuah at Click n Snap thought it might be helpful to pull out the latest Think Tank brochure. Immediately I recognized my backside. You got to wonder why Deanne Fitzmaurice, Rob Galbraith, Tiffany Brown, Doug Murdoch and even Malaysia’s own Glenn Guan all get their mugs on the brochure, but I get my butt. I guess they know a pretty face when they see one.

Note: My website listed in the brochure is wrong. It should read www.mattbrandon.net not .com.

    Hey I’d recognize that butt anywhere! Is this downloadable?

    That’s cheeky!

    Downloadable? Surely it’s the free desktop wallpaper for March!

    That’s interesting that you were not aware of this. About a month ago I shared a few photos with ThinkTank and they immediately asked for the high res copies. I never did hear back from them and just assumed they were not acceptable.

    * I’ve seen this photo before on their site and always thought it was David duChemin with his orange hat.

    Well, they did tell me they were using them. I never really expected them to keep me in the loop. They are too busy for that. I had just forgotten all about it till I saw the brochure yesterday.

    No, Stephen, my butt looks different than Matt’s – not as wide, but more sarcastic. Maybe just more sarcastic…

    Reminds me of a bridge I was on in Sumatra near Mt. Kerinci.
