The Great Office Photo Wall debate

My wife and I are having a debate about my planned photo wall in my new office which I move into later this month. The idea is to have one wall in my office and one in Nastassja‘s office which will have photos relevant to what we’re doing. My thinking behind the wall in my office is to have photos of people in the Web industry who inspire me (and some people I have met). Here are a couple photos I’ve picked so far:

Lawrence Lessig

Mark Zuckerberg

Jimmy Wales

and (you might recognise this inspiring person)

M in colour

Gina doesn’t agree with my choice and thinks the photos are a little random. Her thinking is that the photos on my office wall should be more artistic than random photos of people. Another idea which came to me when debating this with Gina is to put up some of my photos. Here are a couple options which I picked out quickly (I may go out and take more photos for the office but these give you an idea of the photos I could include):

Bean There-6

Bean There-1

Bean There-5

Nokia Lumia launch-9

and

Nokia Lumia launch-51

What do you think? If I go the great looking photos approach, I don’t even mind including some of the more awesome (and more artistic) work by other photographers I know, like Darren Smith and Jeanette Verster, if they make their photos available. I haven’t spoken to them so this is just an idea.

Update: It looks like just about everyone agrees with Gina (and I do like that idea too) so I’ll pick out some of my photos for my office wall. Jeanette is happy to contribute some of hers so I’ll chat to her further about including some of her photos too (if you haven’t seen her work, you really should: Jeanette Verster Photography). Disclosure: Jeanette is a client at Jacobson Attorneys.

  1. Haha I agree with Gina too, I think the last photo is actually very nice. So, where are your pictures in the end? 😉

    1. Hi Matt, we’ve rethought the theme and I am going to commission a photographer to take a set of photos for us which I think will be awesome for our office.

What do you think?
