This project was super-fun. A quick and dirty editorial assignment that we decided to ramp-up a bit and work into a bit of a personal-project and portfolio-image.
The client wanted something to convey a care-free happy spring-like environment, using Olympic Women's 1/2Pipe Snowboard medalist: Gretchen Bleiler... in Snowmass (Snowmass Ski Resort), and they needed a cover image and 2 supporting images for a TOC and a lead-in.
Our shooting-day ended up being CLOUDY (of course, the only cloudy day for almost a month around here), but we shot anyway. We scouted the first day, and then shot the second day.
The client was stoked on the first day of scouting-shots, and then they didn't quite understand what was going to happen the day of production when we got skunked by the weather.
WilzFoto to the rescue... I went back up to grab a separate background from a later-date that we could use instead of the blown-out and super-flat cloudy-one we had to shoot with.
Voila..! The composite went to Mando for retouching, and the client took delivery today of the hi-res that they'd requested.
They ended up requesting 3 additional images to further build the feature out with... and it sounds like we're getting another assignment out of the deal as well.
Thanks crew! Thanks GoMag!
