This shoot combines two things that I really love as a photographer: motorsports and incredible shoot locations. This comprehensive behind the scenes video captured by Ron Risman really gives you a great idea of how photographer Gregor Halenda put the campaign together. The resulting images were crisp and clean, showing off the bikes and locale.
Gregor has become one of the go to photographers for commercial bike companies since he is both an expert rider and very talented commercial photographer. This time, instead of the gritty streets of NYC, the backdrop was the beautiful state of Utah - and more specifically the Salt Flats near Wendover, UT; Goblin Valley, Utah; and Hurrah Pass in Moab, Utah.
REV'IT chose to come to the U.S. for their catalog shoot because of the openness and epic beauty of these three locations. It's no secret that bikers love adventure, curvy roads, and speed - and these locations allowed Gregor to capture these emotions and feelings for REV'IT's catalog. My job was to capture these same emotions and feelings for their BTS film.
This was my second opportunity to work with Gregor and once again he and his crew welcomed us and made us feel part of their family. I can't imagine too many shoot locations that will ever match the week we spent in Utah, but I'm willing to shooting and traveling to find them. I hope you enjoy the final film we created for REV'IT!. The photographs at the end of the film were some of the final images created by Gregor and his editing team for REV'IT!."
