A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Anna. She heard I could photograph people with their cars and was good at it :) So, we sat down talked about her ideas, what she wanted to accomplish and we set the date. Last week we were battling rain, heavy clouds, cooler temperatures, and generally ugly weather (for a photo shoot anyway!). The morning of the shoot Anna called me……”what do you think?” she asked….it was raining! “Let’s hold on, it’s gonna clear up” I told her. In case it didn’t we were still going to do it! I put 60 gallons of water in my truck, towels, etc. Assuming the cars (which were detailed) would get dirty in the drive, we were going to wash them right before we photographed each one :)
Well, it cleared up! The temperature was perfect, clouds opened enough to let some sunshine through and the bugs were in full effect! I loaded the gear into the truck and headed out. It was almost an hour drive to the location we decided on. A great location though!
Setup was pretty basic. I had two lights and home made battery packs to run them at full power. Anna had her Corvette, Challenger, Harley and a few outfits. 4.5 hours later…. we had some pretty amazing images! Despite our best effort to find a road with little (or no) traffic we ended having to move the car and lights on a regular basis. A lot more traffic than we thought ;) That’s a large reason it took so long. Setup, move it, setup, move it, setup, move it, etc, etc ;)
At the end of the day we had accomplished what we set out to do. Here are a few of my favorites! I look forward to any comments!!
We look forward to exceeding your expectations!
If you’re not happy…..We’re not done!
