Many years ago, Nikon had an ad that said "The difficult, we do right away. The impossible, takes a little bit longer", or something to that effect. I was looking for it but couldn't find it, to me it's one of the best ads I have ever seen! And I'm a Canon kind of guy.
Agx, from memory I understand that that picture was taken with an extraordinary Leica telephoto lens manufactured for Leni Riefenstahl for the 72 Olympics.
The story went something like this:- this was her first commission for stills photography at an Olympic games and she told Leica I need a long fast lens, which Leica did not have. So they made one to her specifications, more or less, I believe it may have been an 800mm f/5.6.
That particular lens, and I believe there was only one made and enough spare parts to fix the front end if it was dropped, was then used around the world for special events or things. This would come under that category and Jay Maisel is the kind of photographer who could utilise the strengths of a very long lens to compress like he has obviously done.
I notice most camera adverts these days have a boring looking DSLR against black with a bunch of copy. Not too exciting.
In the UK, I think the best ads were not in print but on TV in the 70s and 80s for Olympus Cameras with David Bailey and George Cole. (Famous British actor much loved for playing slightly dodgy geezers, especially in the TV series Minder.) Here's a few.
