Hi all. Just joined to share my most recent photoshoot with what I know have to be the true hardcore fans out there. I photograph privately owned exotic cars for a living, but last week I was finally in the position to shoot a Wrangler, which I've been wanting to do for quite some time now. Plus, there simply isn't a better looking color for the Wrangler than Steel Blue, in my opinion. So naturally, I had to do it justice.
The location I chose, I had discovered a few months ago, and had been wanting to shoot out there for just as long, but none of the cars I photograph have the ground clearance to make it past the potholes and uneven back roads. So once I had secured the car, I knew right away where we were shooting. There's tons of variety in this spot, and it allowed for a vastly different shoot than I usually produce.
This is my second largest shoot to date, with 28 photos. The only other series that's come close to that number was a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo that I photographed in September. Shot the Wrangler last Friday, and spent the last six days editing the photos, 10 hours a day, until the set was complete. The look I was going for was 'Alaskan river bank, late winter', with the desaturated light blue colors and semi-high key tones. I accomplished the feel that I wanted, despite not having any mountains in the background to back up my Alaskan vibe; this was shot in southern Louisiana.
Anyway. I hope you guys dig the series.
