What happens when you send two young men to Las Vegas with $500 to spend over 24 hours?
When Dave Schmidt, Director of Sales and Marketing at LPA Design, manufacturer of PocketWizard Photo Products, gave Tech Specialists Ian Ray and Chris Valites two tickets to Las Vegas and $500, he told them he needed an image to promote the recently launched Plus III Transceiver. As with any good photo adventure, the behind-the-scenes has its own story to tell. Here’s just a bit of how Ian and Chris brought their images to life as told by Chris Valites:
How do you fit an entire shoot’s worth of gear into the trunk of a Lotus, which would generously be described as “cramped?” We improvised: we grabbed a T3i, a 5D Mark II, a 50mm Canon lens, a 17-40mm Canon L lens, a handful of 430EX IIs, a tripod, a softbox, a monopod, and of course a set of Plus III Transceivers. Half of that equipment ended up sitting on my lap as Ian drove out to the desert.
