So....I know it has been a while since I blogged here in bloggerville. I wanted to put up some recent work and let the 30 or so of you that follow this thing, know things are going well.
I have been doing a lot of work commercially and (always) busy with some kind of dance stuff. I got the new dance brochures done and will post them soon. So, if you are aware of any dance studios looking for great photos and stellar video, send them my way and I will woo them with my moustache 😉
About the fire trucks. This was a shot I had thought about a long time ago but didn't want to copy a shot that was hanging in the Lincoln Fire Museum so at the time I dismissed it. The Captain on Truck 7 called me and wanted to know if we could recreate the iconic Capitol shoot. I didn't realize that the two trucks in the original photo were Truck 7 and 8. And it just so happens that we are getting them replaced after 20 some odd years. So, before they were turned loose on the streets, we scheduled this shoot.
I wanted it to be different and stand out more in the style I have become fond of for shooting vehicles and creating a dramatic message in advertising. The KDP team spent quite a bit of time planning and figuring out the lighting setup ahead of time as I knew we were going to be blocking traffic in a big way, or two big ways!! There was a lengthy table top and a few pages on the old steno pad to get it right.
I had an awesome crew and need to thank Jessie Mac, Jessie T, Captain Scott, Timmy, and all their families that helped get things set up and helped with traffic. Also, a huge shout out to the band 311 who was playing directly behind us at a live venue that overlooked the Capitol Building.
I will try to keep up on the blog better and when the studio is finally finished I will do some kind of video tour or something….promise.
