Chevy City

A couple of weekends ago, CBP participated in an auction for a children's charity at a local car show. At stake was an evening shoot with yours truly. A wonderful Boise couple won the auction (and contributed to a nice haul for a great cause). We settled on an evening this week and began watching the weather. The clients were a little concerned when a rain shower rolled through the area just about an hour before the scheduled shoot, but not to worry (if you don't like the Boise weather in spring, wait 10 minutes!), the weather cleared and it was ON! "By the way, would it be ok if we added the blue '57 Chev to the planned '69 Camaro?" Sure! 

I don't know what's more fun, picking a location and shooting these awesome hot rods, or cruising between locations listening to American-made pushrod V-8s rumble down the road. 

We ended up having a super evening out in Boise, and got what I think are some pretty fun images. The clients were wonderful and were completely cool with sharing, so have a look!

Classic Cars

A couple of weeks ago, had the opportunity to spend an evening with friends and several of their gorgeous classic cars. We headed out for a couple of hours just as evening turned in to dusk, quickly cranking through several "looks".  
My goal was to really highlight the gorgeous cars, but also to show a little bit of the environment too. We cruised around town, hit several cool locations, and shot like mad. 
Have a look! Which one is your favorite? I have a million more ideas to work out, looks like it's going to take another shoot or three! 
Checking gear, charging batteries, and loading up the car - headed out momentarily to shoot another really special car tonight. It's a secret for now, but tonight's car is a fantastic color. Can't wait to see what images we come back with. Hope to share more soon. But for now, recent work!

An afternoon with Katy and Justin

Last weekend, spent an afternoon with the wonderful Katy and Justin. Being Memorial Day weekend, we were certain to encounter some weather. Sure enough, it was raining most of the morning before the shoot, and we were running the windshield wipers as we headed out of town, straight into the dark greyness of a stormy spring afternoon. Had a good feeling about the evening, though, and sure enough, the clouds parted just long enough to hit several fun locations. Worked light and fast, and had a fantastic time! Just as we wrapped up downtown Boise after 10pm, the skies opened and it poured again. When you're lucky, you're lucky. We'll take it!

Big thanks to fellow shooter and all-around amazing gal Christina Hoskin for fantastic assistance.
