Yep, we shot for both in one week. If they knew that, I wonder if they would have made me sign some non-disclosure. Thats a little too much ENERGY BANG for one week. I thought my heart was gonna jump right out of my chest a vibrate on the deck of the boat. Eventually i fought through the senseless chatter and neurotic indecisiveness and got what we needed. All at 8fps rapid fire… Digital’s ways of getting high on taurine.
Here’s a couple randoms from each shoot. The fist one is from the Red Bull shoot at the shuttle launch and other one was sent to me from Brandon Parker from the rockstar shoot.
Danny H made an appearance too. He had his ‘photo shoot” radar on and picked up the strong signal firing out of the Byerly vicinity. He was there as a bystander, just bringing the vibe for the sidelines. Thanks for the dash of normalcy Dan.
Man, I felt like I actually had a real job this past week. I shot every day from Sunday to Sunday. And, I don’t know about you, but I like my weekends off. But, hey, sometimes, in the name of art and having a job that you love, I am willing to make a sacrifice. I was Space Coast to the Space needle in 24 hours. We flew out to Seattle to shoot the mountain biker, Wade Simmons, for a series of ads for Bell Helmets. it was 85 when i left and 37 when i landed. I wore everything that I had in my bag and found out quickly that a hoody sweatshirt did NOT qualify as a “jacket.” I even bought a pair of fingerless gloves. Yes, i looked like a serious badass with those things on. Bring me my photo jacket with film pockets please.
The awesome dudes at Nemo put together this production video of the shoot, CHECK IT OUT.
My good friend Bobby is doing what we always promised ourselves…Doing what he loves and works for himself. As a personal project, I shot portraits of his staff. We found this old service elevator in his office and got wild. Thanks dudes… fun day
well…have i got the place for you.
