Joost van Baars's picture


We followed an elite SWAT team around to get some good footage of them.

3 days of travelling, a series of photographs like this one and a thrilling video of an assault practice was the result.

Afterwards I got to play in the armory. Coming from The Netherlands I never held a gun except for some clay pidgeon shooting, so holding machine guns, tommy guns and C4 packages were a nice change from holding my D810 :).

Lighting was simple, 3 Profotoheads, 1 in front, one in the back and one for fill. Just a small colour correction in PS to finish it off.

As for the SWAT Team, nice guys with an incredible job.
