So I was asked to accompany the 1010 Monster Energy drink wakeboard team for their 2010 ad campaign photo shoot. Shooting and editing video on a wakeboard photo shoot is little more difficult than a dedicated video shoot. The riders are more focused on just the peak of their tricks for still photos than the whole trick like they would be for video. So they did a lot of the same tricks over and over and really basic tricks as well. Just trying to make it look good for a photo.
We started at 6:00am and wrapped the day up at 7:30pm. The morning and most of the day was spent in a cloud covered sun with hit an miss rain through out the day. In the afternoon we ventured over to Kevin Henshaw's house where Photographer Joey Meddock had set up a photo studio in the garage to take some life style images. We then headed back to the lake to finish up on the action with the rest of the team.
What a great time and be sure to check out http://www.monsterenergy.com to see the still images from the day and meet the rest of the Monster Team.
