In one of the better behind the scenes videos I've seen recently, my friend Pepper Yandell takes viewers through a complete automotive shoot for AutoSource Dallas and HRE Wheels.
Here's Pepper's breakdown of the shoot:
"The photoshoot is for AutoSource Dallas and HRE Wheels. AutoSource gave me the keys to their 1,200HP Jotech Stage 6 Widebody Nissan GT-R repainted in Lamborghini's Verde Ithica color, and my current favorite car, the Ferrari 458 Spider. I already had some locations picked out, and then we scouted out the rest as we were cruising around town. The first location was simply some containers we stumbled across as we were driving down the street from AutoSource. The second location was my buddy's warehouse, the Dallas Automobile Storehouse in Addison, TX. The last location was this shut down, under construction hotel + parking garage my friend Nathan the construction manager got us access to."
