Last week I photographed a Citation Encore for a new client of mine. The final exterior image will be in the upcoming issue of the Executive Controller, an international aircraft buyers periodical.
It was decided to do a night shoot so we could get the plane to pop a little bit off the page. I loved the idea, but it did present some difficult problems that I’d have to figure out. In the days leading up to the shoot I tracked down as many lights as I could find and went on a scouting trip to pick a good location.
There were several people involved to make this happen. First, thanks to Chris for helping me at the shoot, and for his great work in post production. Thanks to Robert for lending me some additional lights, they were a must have. Thanks to David, friend and photographer, for helping me think through the lighting before the day of the shoot. And, thanks to my client for giving me the opportunity.
If you’re in the market for a private jet, let me know, I’ve got the sweet hookups.
