Fight Club meets Top Gun at Jefferson County International Airport – Port Townsend, WA

BoxingRing

With five consecutive days of creating conceptual shoots in and around Port Townsend, WA, on Monday, June 6th, I convened at Jefferson County International Airport with an empty canvas to play with.  Six hours later amidst a host of amazing hands to help with construction and execution, the above shot went from imagination, visualization to fruition.  Welcome to the ring where “Fight Club” meets “Top Gun” and the varying portraits of the characters taking place in the raucous carnival.

The hands were aplenty and the gear a variety.  Shot with a Mamiya 645 AFD III digital body and a Mamiya 35mm f/3.5 AF lens, ProFoto heads, ProFoto B4 Battery Pack, ropes loaned from Net Systems and costumes from The Federal Army and Navy Surplus Store in Seattle.  Scott at Tailspin Tommy provided the 1941 Jeep Willy and the retro Norton motorcycle along with the planes in the background.  Thank you to all those involved, including Bill Gratton of Mac-On-Campus and Ralph Portillo of Glazers Camera.
