Three weeks in Florida, part two…

In the second half of my trip to the Southeast, I spent a few days with my marine team in Sarasota, Florida, shooting for Bayliner Boats. Working out of Sarasota is always a good experience. It has a ton of great locations, and the local talent is first class. We had the pleasure of working with approximately 90 models on this shoot! And we made some new friends in the industry; we finally got to work with the über-talented photoboat captain Gary Lowe and the crew from Mark Rackley Productions. I definitely was excited to work with these guys, as their excellent reputation preceded them. And they didn’t disappoint. It usually is challenging to work side-by-side with a video crew, but in this case, it was a positive experience from beginning to end. In addition to working with a great crew, the diversity of the set-ups was a welcome change. Not only did we get to do the usual running and set-up shots, but we also scheduled helicopter and even studio shots. I’ll have to do another post on the studio shots… I can’t write about it until January, as the boat was a top-secret prototype. Exciting stuff.

The only downside was Florida’s unpredictable weather in November, and sure enough, we lost almost a day and a half due to a cold front moving in. But we made the best of it. We even got one last aerial shot, thanks to the remote- controlled photo drone I’d brought along.

Anyway, after five days and nearly 10,000 images, our team finally broke ranks. I made my way back to Colorado… just in time to pick up our Thanksgiving turkey.

Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot:
