Back in June we were asked to shoot the “Best of the Best” for Field & Stream Magazine. For this project we had the opportunity to go on location near Mt. Adams in Washington where we made use of many varying kinds of terrain, from an Aspen grove to Douglas Fir forest areas. We camped for two nights, setting up during the day and shooting at dusk and into the night.
Fog machines and fog spray were used in many of the shots, see behind-the-scenes photos of crew fogging up a dusk shot in the Aspen grove. Behind-the-scenes photos also show prop stylist Dominique Baynes with crew mudding up the Polaris ATV in-studio for the cover shot. Shooting multiple shots at night required set-moving in the dark and late hours- hammock naps in the Penske were required during the day.
Check out the August issue of Field & Stream to see more gear photos on location. Hanging out in the woods with this group was a blast! Thanks so much to John Toolan for the great project and to Prop Stylist Dominique Baynes for styling in the dark!
