Back in December, I had the opportunity to piggy back on a commercial spot with BFGoodrich and shoot some behind the scenes photos for the launch of their G-Force Comp 2 Sport tires. The shoot was located in Los Angeles around to the 7th street bridge industrial area. I’ve shot on and around the bridge for numerous photo shoots previously where I usually shoot full guerrilla style while trying my best stay out of the law’s way. I was now able to explore the location legally and free of those pressures. It was quite literally a light capturers playground!
The idea for the commercial was a take on the classic cat and mouse story. This time, the cat and mouse have been replaced by two growling muscle cars: a Hurst Chevy Camaro and a Hurst Dodge Challenger. Their job was to chase each other around this industrial complex and my job was roughly the same except I had to chase them around while dodging the video cameras laid all throughout the shoot location.
Here are a few shots from the day. I’ll be taking a more behind the scene’s look at the shoot in the next blog post.
