Take a look at these spectacular portraits by Aaron Ruell. You might know him as Kip from Napolean Dynamite, but Ruell is also an accomplished commercial director and photographer. Remember the opening sequence on Napolean Dynamite with the ketchup typography? He did that. His work has also been shown in galleries Paris, Milan, and Buenos Aires. I was drawn to these recent photos by the incredible staging, the over-the-top texture and patterns, the punchy colors and dramatic lighting. Check out more of his work here.
