The last few Fridays I have been working on a different type of shoot – and it has been more than interesting! Laurel and I have been getting up at the BCD (thanks Laurel, I know how much you love the early mornings!) to meet up with Mac at Pacific Industrial Supply store down in South Park so we can photograph the warehouse & store along with some of the products they carry, oh – and of course since we are there we might as well get some of the guys in action! The last three weeks we have learned more about tools than we will EVER need or want to know – marine vs timber style of rope ties or was it called rigging?? Who knows – this made me think of when guys ask why we need 10 pairs of black shoes it seems so obvious how different each pair is – but WHY do they need 10 styles of rope, it all makes sense now. :0) Pacific Industrial is building a new website and they needed some dynamo images to help show people who order online what they will be getting – or picking up, plus it is a really cool space that not many people get to see!
It had to be entertaining for the guys to watch us try and figure out what direction was up, we put things into categories of shiny, hookey, heavy, greasy, floaty – you know, so we could easily remember what we had photographed! Here are a few of the million images we snapped the last few weeks. Enjoy!
We had SO much fun working on this project – it is always a challenge doing something new and different but one of my favorite things about being a photographer is that every day is a little different – yet every day we still have our ridiculous senses of humor, so here are some funny ones of us in the GARBAGE CANS! HA! ** Note – we did not drive the fork lift, even though we WANTED to we just posed for photos because of some silly safety rules**
