What is your dream photo shoot if money, time, etc was no object?


Location: Well equipped studio including a car size ceiling light box.
Subject: Ferraris and Lamborghinis (preferably Ferrari Testarossa, Ferrari F40, Lamborghini Countach, Lamborghini Diablo)
Why: These cars were featured on the posters which covered my bedroom walls as a kid. They have always been highly desirable cars to me and I'd love to try to replicate these posters as well as take a few new angles on these beautiful works of art.

So, what's yours?

Event: Mens Downhill Ski Racing
Location: Kitzbuhel, Austria or Wengen, Switzerland
Why: Looks so spectacular on the television just like to have a go at photographing it... in perfect conditions, of course ! !
I did attend the race in Kitzbuhel one year but was not really into photography in those days. ( c January 1984 I think )

Fastnet race from sea and helicopter

Start of the Cowes Torquay Cowes powerboat race, as above

That will do for the moment but there are many and various shoots I would love to do (but know I have absolutely no chance of ever achieving - still, its good to dream Grin )

Interesting, so far there appears to be a theme related to speed / sports.

The perfect night shot at the LeMans 24 Hour, a combination of speed, colour, detail, occasion and drama!

Location: - New York
Subject: - Super cars in a city of sky scrapers... I love sky scrapers, I'm lucky to have been up some of the best and seen the biggest (in Dubai). New York is an amazing place where I got a strained neck from looking up all the time.

I'd love a street to closed for a few hours so I could create some cool shots with that skyline as backdrop... maybe with steam coming out of the sidewalk and some strategically places yellow cabs in the background.
Why:- a combination of having been to new york BEFORE I had a camera, and longing to go back... plus the joy I get from shooting super cars.

I'd like to go back in time when cameras were a rarity and people were always willing to be in a shot rather than wanting to attack you or be rude. Your work would be more valued than it is today and all the genres would still be open to interpretation because they hadn't been done before.

1. Place: Monaco - During the F1 weekend. Free access to photograph cars/drivers in the Pit lane plus later in the press areas.
2. Place: Grand Canyon - to spend a year living in the Grand Canyon taking photos at different seasons and times of the day.

Both are clearly just dreams as 1. would not be allowed and I do not seriously think I could do 2. given that I have never been camping in my life but think of the photo opportunities.

This is the current dream ...

Location: Somewhere where there wasn't any dodgy person(s) who wanted to cosh me over the head in order to nick my camera equipment! (I have a real phobia about being out and about on my own with a camera ... which probably doesn't aid my photography any ... Sad)

Subject: Woods/forests with a plethora of trees (birches, gnarly old oaks and the like), with fog/mist and endless possibilities for truly magical images. Oh, and some crows and other 'dark' birds would go down well too Smile

Why: Because I love those places that have a sense of mystical isolation, where anything can happen and you could slip through the layers of worlds and encounter things you wouldn't find in this one.

I think I'm just an old hippy at heart! Grin

I've already fulfilled all of my dream photo shoot locations and subjects.

Night out on the Cuillin ridge for sunset and sunrise - Strenuous but not technically too hard.
Sunrise on CMD overlooking Ben Nevis - Most difficult of the iconic Scottish hills to photograph well.
Midwinter sunrise over the Five Sisters of Kintail - Sheer unbridled euphoria, never felt more alive in the hills.
View from A' Mhaighdean in remote Letterewe - Remote, no tripod holes here!
Alone on An Teallach in gathering dusk - Emotional.
Scary moments photographing the Liathach pinnacles in snow and ice - Just scared.
Exhausted but elated after a full day for a handful of photos of Ben Alder - A big achievement after years of planning.
A weekend roaming Knoydart and listening to local banter in the remotest pub in Britain - Life at a different pace.

...to name but a few dream photo shoots.

Why Because mountains are my passion, photography itself isn't that interesting for me but it is a way of expressing my interest and passion in the hills.

I've achieved my photo ambitions now and haven't picked up a camera in over year, and no real desire to...

Location, a crisp clean studio space with enough related props to complement a group of interesting people (ages and face styles) in a fashionably related but slightly alternative style against a clean muted background.
A series of snoots to pick out individuals, and a high speed flash pulse to properly freeze human movement (1/800s) for one of two of the models. And a lens with a shallow enough DOF to lose items not in the focus plane, so probably a 24-70 F2.8 with about 10 feet background separation.
A MUA and a small smoke machine is a bonus.
