I have two daughters (11 and 4) and one son (7). They wanna be: an actress, a robot maker and a dancer-chef-teacher-driver. I’ll let you do the match up. Actually many of us had “dream jobs” when we were growing up and for some, we never got to experience those dreams because life took us on different paths than we thought they would when we were young.

Photographer Brandon Cawood opens a small window so kids, (specifically, his sister’s, Malisa, 5th grade pupils) can see themselves in that dream job of theirs. As a bonus, the project started when two 5th graders interviewed Brandon for they Career Project at school – They wanted to be photographers when they grow up. (How cool is that, kids still want to be photographers, take that Cynicists!). Brandon gave the class a lecture what it means to “be a photographer” and the kids wanted their photos taken in a cool way.

Well, what is cooler than having your photo taken for the School’s Career Project playing your dream job? Nothing!

Brandon shot the kids over 4 days in school against a white backdrop and spent the next summer shooting backplates to composite the kids in.

Just to give you an idea of the compositing process here are a few before/after views:

All and all there are 17 such composites, which awesomely you can buy as an 18 month calendar where all profits go to a “City of Refuge” charity which provides college support and a career fund for under privileged youth in their area.
