I’ve always wanted to see a Bugatti up close and personal, but I always seemed to just miss one whenever it was around. My first opportunity to achieve this desire was better than I could’ve ever expected! I was contacted by Park Place Bugatti in Dallas, TX; informing me that they had one of the rarest editions of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s being delivered, the Rembrandt edition. There’s only 3 of these made, and each one sold for $3.67 million.
I instantly began pre-production and assembled my crew. This car was being delivered to it’s new owner here in Dallas, and was on a tight schedule. The shoot was scheduled for the day the car was actually being delivered, but the client had set aside 4-5 hours for production. Unfortunately, due to an error in delivery, this time got cut all the way down to 60 minutes. This put us in a very tight spot to get everything required, but thanks to my crew we made it happen.
The Profoto B1 system also made this rush of a shoot much more possible, it would’ve been a nightmare having to deal with power cords and power packs everywhere. If you’re on location or in a pinch on getting a shot with a lot of limitations on time or available power, the B1′s are a godsend!
Hope you enjoy the photos we produced, also please take a minute to scope out my website and/or follow me on Facebook.
I’d like to thank my crew:
