Monday morning Peoria greetings to all!!!!
Sometimes things don’t go as planned in this business and this shoot was one of those times!!! I got a call from “Treasury and Risk” magazine and they were going to be doing a cover story on Caterpillar CFO, Mr. Ed Rapp. We got a shoot set up and the location was going to be at Caterpillar’s Edwards demo area. At Edwards, they’ve got a lot of very big toys out there and I had these grand ideas of how I was going to photograph Mr. Rapp with some of the bigger pieces of earth moving equipment. When I got out to Edwards, they told me that Mr. Rapp wanted to be photographed with some of the smallest equipment that Caterpillar makes since he had been in charge of this equipment in the past! Damn, time for plan “B”! Well, I was very fortunate that I had gotten out there early and was able to figure out a number of shots for the cover and inside photos to support the story! Needless to say we banged things out and got some very nice stuff for the magazine! Here’s the cover shot that the magazine picked!!!
Thanks as always for taking the time to check out my work and I hope that you have a wonderful week as always!!!!
