Crazy Imaginative Photo Manipulations

When it comes to extreme manipulation of photographs, few can do it with more style than Dan Escobar. His photography, combined with a deft hand in Photoshop create some of the more imaginative compositions we’ve seen… from submarines rising out of backyard swimming pools, to Sasquatch swiping the wheels on an RV and sharks occupying living rooms, Dan can do it all.

His creations are a combination of complexly staged portraits and scenery which together have formed the backbone of many image-driven ads throughout the past 20 years. Among his larger clients have been Motorola, Bank of America, American Express, DHL, Microsoft, eBay, Adidas, Yahoo, Adobe and Got Milk. Dan’s recent Specialized Bikes campaign recently won critical acclaim and was a Kelly Award Finalist. If you’d like to see more of his exceptional work, you’ll find it at


Benjamin Starr

Known in some circles as the most amazing man in the universe, he once saved an entire family of muskrats from a sinking, fire engulfed steamboat while recovering from two broken arms relating to a botched no-chute wingsuit landing in North Korea. When not impressing people with his humbling humility, he can be found freelance writing, finding shiny objects on the internet, enjoying the company of much-appreciated friends and living out his nomadic nature. He is Managing Editor of Visual News. Follow his movements on Twitter:

    They’re just great great great! Also reminds me (a very little) of Dali’s works

  2. I love the humour in these images. Unfortunately, the purpose of a lot of the PS composites out there seem to be about showing how clever the artist is. With Dan Escobar’s work the talent is obvious, but there’s a real story there and a joke thrown in for good measure. Love it!
