Alejandro Maestre Gasteazi on Alejandro Maestre Gasteazi
I studied photography at the Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (CITM), where I worked as lighting teacher. I’ve tought for more than 10 years at several schools from Barcelona (IDEP, CEV, GrisArt, CREA Formación), and also in Vocational Training Centres (Centro de Tecnologías avanzadas de Zaragoza, CTA) and Community Centres (Can Basté, Pati Llimona, etc). In 2003 I founded CitizenPixel, a company specialised in production of advertising images, in which I had the chance to work for important companies such as Audi, Burberry, Mayoral or Industrias Cosmic, in cooperation with the main advertising agencies (Contrapunto, BBDO, CP Interactive).

Currently, my career as a photographer has two main aspects: On one hand, I work as trainer and I research on new digital postproduction techniques, and on the other hand I work as independent photographer (author photography and to order).
I’m the coordinator of Arte/Facto (, an on-line training school where I teach digital postproduction.

4. JetBlue Election Protection 2012

What are you gonna do if your guy -- whoever he may be -- doesn't win the Presidential Election? The country is obviously going to the dogs, so why not leave? JetBlue and Mullen nicely echo the "I'm moving to _____" sentiment with the Election Protection campaign, which promises customers a free flight if their candidate doesn't win.

Visit the site, select your Presidential choice, and enter for a chance to win a ticket to one of the airline's 21 destinations. The site also has a real-time map showing where Americans want to escape to, and after the election results are in, 1,006 tickets will be given away. The brand is also on a canvassing tour around the country, out to encourage people to vote.

Of course, the point is to get customers to go out and vote -- but we have to wonder, how many people are going to vote for the "other guy" just for the free flight?
