Recreate the Pose of a Famous Photo

My boss, Dennis, loves the Beatles. And yes, he’s a baby boomer! His favorite album is Abbey Road with John, Paul, Ringo and George walking across a striped crosswalk on the cover.

For one of his retirement gifts, I recreated the famous Beatles photo with Dennis and his three Team Leaders who have worked with him for 20 years.

I scoped out the many streets in our city and found the white stripes in an intersection that would allow us to recreate the photo.

Can you believe Dennis already owned a white suit? It was the perfect match for John Lennon (without the long hair, of course).

Eldon wore a dark suit to resemble Ringo Starr.

Deborah wore a suit, high heels (instead of going bare foot) and carried her iPad for an updated version of Paul McCartney holding a cigarette.

Last but not least, John wore jeans similar to George Harrison’s attire.

The photo shoot took less than 20 minutes but we had lots of fun doing it! I used the final image to order photo canvas gifts for each of them.

Recreating a famous photo pose can be done for any occasion such as birthdays, anniversaries, engagements or just because it’s a fun experience!

Remember the infamous photo of the VJ Day Kiss? It’s been recreated many times. This pose would make a cute engagement photo or a save-the-date card for a wedding.

It’s not just about the photo though.

It’s a fun experience to recreate a famous photo pose. You’ll create both special memories and a memento to last a lifetime!

Can you think of other famous photos that could be recreated? Please share. We would love to hear your ideas!
