People engaged in mental action

a start-up
Buyer review complete, Marketplace review

We'd love to see portraits - including close up shots - of men / women with expressions of engagement and focus and mental effort.

These photos could be of artists, athletes, craftsmen, outdoors people, soldiers; regular folks engaged in other activities: Anyone meeting the description above, **except** for stock imagery, of an office person looking at a laptop (gasp!), e.g. We're looking for uncommon ideas on this theme.

What do you look like when you're in action, focused on a creative, enlivening, engrossing but demanding task that takes mental (and possibly physical) energy to accomplish? We want you to capture that moment in others for us. Observers of the photos should want to know what the subject is doing, feeling, thinking....

Other Notes: Don't mistake this request for photos of angry people. :)

We'd like to purchase 4-5+ complementary images from the community for a Web site. We might also wish to use images on a printed business card and in sales collateral (Powerpoint slides).

8 years ago - Are images from Fenway park baseball and NASCAR races ok or are we only allowed to use people we know due to needed permission?
8 years ago - We've nominated a few photos now. A standard color photo is probably the right idea, so we can mix and match final selections from a variety of talented artists!
