Characters for Padilla CRT

Our recent work for Padilla CRT featured in PR Weekly. Padilla CRT wanted to capture the unique spirit behind their employee-owners and how that synergy helps to create unique brands. The creative director looked to us for a series of images that were light hearted, dynamic and told a story in one frame. I believe we delivered well. We set up on location in small town Carver, MN to capture this classic gas station at dusk. One challenge here was shooting with traffic still flowing on the street between the camera and the subjects. Just a little patience and we had a set of great captures. The second day we had two set ups. The Highland Dancing/VR shot was done on location at the MN Renaissance Festival where a humid, but beautiful day greeted us. The final shot was a little slippery, but tons of fun to capture. We had to get a shot of the fly fisherman and the business man in a dark spot during sunset. My crew put a lot of work into getting this lit up and I ended up shooting it from the creek upstream while shoulder deep in rushing water.
