Full Version: So, uh, how about a personal submarine?

This was one of the more interesting subjects I've ever worked with! Hawkes Ocean Technologies contacted me last month to arrange a shoot with one of their submarines, the Super Falcon, which they will now be marketing to a wider audience (read: the super yacht crowd).

It resembles, and indeed operates like an airplane underwater, hence the name of their sub-brand, "Deep Flight." You can check out a video of the sub in action here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRsV_eUovKw

So, onto the photos. The shoot itself was relatively quick, with the noted tradeoff being that I would be spending a lot of time in post. The shoot happened on fairly short notice, and it would have been quite difficult to have the sub moved to an optimal shooting location like a studio. But I scouted out the loading dock at their facility in Point Richmond, CA, and figured there would be plenty of space to work with, and we could do a night shoot and edit out the background. And man, was it a lot of editing. Probably averaged out to 3.5-4hrs per photo x16 photos. My eyes were twitching by the end of it.

Anyway, hope y'all enjoy. Feedback appreciated.

I'd want guns.

I'd have to agree with you there. And a couple of torpedos would go nicely with the lasers it's already outfitted with.
