Photographing Trucks For The First Time

I’ve been shooting motorized vehicles for nearly 10 years now but I’ve never had the chance yet to shoot semi-trucks… until now! The project was a complex one with photo and video demands all being squished into one day. As our day began I quickly found out how photogenic these big rigs are, no really, I mean it! The swooping cabs and the huge length of the trucks make for some great leading lines, and in photographic terms, leading lines make for striking images. However, I quickly realized how difficult it is to arrange these truck/trailers. No surprise there. Working with our amazing drivers on the day of the shoot, we managed to maneuver each of the trucks into the positions we need with only minimal communication. Here are the results:

The Truck of Many Colors

This shoot was done for a new and exciting client, 3M. Our first assignment was to be based in the much warmer climate of Charlotte North Carolina. A nice break from the bitter Minnesota Winter.  The subject of this shoot was under wraps for a long time, so it was amazing to finally see it! The truck, trailer, and it in use was our shoot. Get some pretty hero shots of the vehicle and some interior shots of the trailer in use. The trailer is a mobile training vehicle for 3M vinyl application training. This was the inaugural run. It was an absolute pleasure to work with 3M for the first time on this larger project.
