[Behind The Scenes] VIP Jackson Magazine Fall Fashion Shoot (8/2013)

Posted in 2013, Behind The Scenes, black and white, Digital, Fashion, model shoot, Photo Post by William Patrick Butler on October 14, 2013

this was one of the biggest shoots i’ve been involved in.

when tom beck called me up to see if i was free, and willing, to, not only be his assist on this shoot, but to also shoot some behind the scenes photos, he laid it all out for me:

i’ve been wanting to get into the fashion scene more, plus, it sounded like it’d be some adventure.

let’s do this.

Day One

BTS VIP Jackson Fall Fashion Shoot (1 of 68)

day one started off very early to the side of the clock tower that’s in the middle of the Renaissance.  i’m ended up being glad we started each of the three days so early cause, let me tell ya, we ended up shooting on the three days that turned out to be the three hottest days of the entire summer.

this was the first car we shot with. a 1954 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn! (owned by Kelly Kyle)

we had to do a sudden location change because, for some reason, the Renaissance didn’t want us blocking traffic in front of the cloak tower and making it hard for customers to park and spend money. go figure  😉

so, here we are at our new location, thankful for some shade.
