Dangerous Photography Jobs

http://www.onlinecertificateprograms.org/blog/2010/10-dangerous-photography-jobs/This is taken from the above article, with permission:Photography can be a case of life or death. It may sound absurd, but professional photographers often go to great lengths and compromise their safety in order to get the perfect picture. Whether it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to photograph Mount Everest or a mission to cover the Iraq war, many photographers risk their lives just to do their job. Here are 10 dangerous photography jobs: Extreme Weather Photography
Extreme weather photographers aren’t storm chasers, but they do have an eye for photographing hurricanes, tornados, thunderstorms and other severe weather in their most vulnerable state. As you can imagine, this job is nothing short of extreme. Extreme weather photographers have to get close to the storm when everyone else is running from it, which puts them at risk for injuries and often death. BASE Jumping & Skydiving Photography

Ford Mustang GT shoot for Jack Daniels

A Mustang is a smoking hot guitar. Seriously, it’s even cooler up close, and way cooler once you start the engine. I’m not a petrol-head by a long shot, but I can appreciate a well-built and appealing car. And this car is appealing. And I shot it. I can add it to the Nissan GT-R, Audi R8, Aston Martin DBs, Jag XFR’s and a host more seriously sick cars I’ve had the privilege to shoot. The images are for Jack Daniels who is currently running a competition where you can win this desirable vehicle. So, I needed to make it look every bit as hot as it is. Also, the car will be presented in a very special way to the public, but I’m not sure if I’m at liberty to discuss that, so I’ll let you see the press for details. It helps a lot when you’re shooting these type of things in a proper studio, fitted with a revolve, huge curve and proper lighting. BTW – the lighting was a mix of HMI and red-heads, Kinoflow and a DIY kino-vibe things, standing around in the studio. Normally I work with flash, …

Bronx Shoes Billboard Shoot

If you're passing Gugulethu Taxi Rank's way, or JHB Taxi Rank, you will notice a 6x9m billboard with a Bronx ad on it. Above is the Gugs one  and the Jozi one.Now, if you've wondered what goes into shooting something like this, well here goes.Client: Bronx ShoesAgency: Traffic Integrated Marketing - www.trafficintegrated.co.zaPhotography: Danie Nel Photography - www.danienel.co.zaPost and Design: Bianca at Traffic Integrated MarketingModel: Bobby Roache - Base Models - www.basemodelagency.comThe concept was of a guy sitting perched somewhere, so one can see a Afro-entric urban landscape in the background, dramatically lit. The product shots of shoes (I shot those later in studio) would then be dropped onto the image along with copy, logo's and catchline. Also, a JHB skyline, shot by another photographer, would be dropped into one of the shots for the JHB billboard.SO:First you quote and get approval and get that out of the way. Then you go for a recce mission to get a …
