Introducing my very first behind the scenes video! I’m going to start consistently releasing as much behind the scenes content as I can from now. I want to share as much as I can with my friends, peers, and followers in the industry — I believe we all improve from inspiration for not just our finished photos, but the techniques and processes we use to arrive to the final product.
This photoshoot was for AutoSource Dallas and HRE Wheels. AutoSource gave me the keys to their 1,200HP Jotech Stage 6 Widebody Nissan GT-R repainted in Lamborghini’s Verde Ithica color, and my current favorite car, the Ferrari 458 Spider. I already had some locations picked out, and then we scouted out the rest as we were cruising around town. The first location was simply some containers we stumbled across as we were driving down the street from AutoSource. The second location was my buddy’s warehouse, the Dallas Automobile Storehouse in Addison, TX. The last location was this shut down, under construction hotel + parking garage my friend Nathan the construction manager got us access to.
I used the Profoto D1 Air Kit for lighting, and had the awesome Karissa Hosek as a key grip, moving around the lights and generator as needed per shot. The behind the scenes footage was shot by Greg Royar and Dylan Spencer. Shane Klein provided some great behind the scenes pictures and assisted in driving the Nissan GT-R to and from locations as well.

This video was featured on the fantastic FSTOPPERS website, check out the article my good friend and peer, Andrew Link, wrote about it!
