The sheer complexity of putting together a shoot that revolves around a $70 million dollar jet that travels near the speed of sound is monumental. I had no idea the true meaning of jet set until I tried to capture this sky chariot of billionaires and royals. The G650 would be on the ground for a short while then gone again before you could pack your camera bag. To make things even more complex, we wanted a sunset shoot, so weather, timetables, and short window of opportunity made the shoot even more of an impossibility. Due to this crazy; short window of opportunity to get this once in a lifetime editorial shot, I had to change crews about three times. Some people would be booked that day; others out of the country on a shoot. I needed a crew that could work fast and would be ready at a minutes notice. After many changes made I found them.
