I've had lots of interesting opportunities in the time I've been a photographer. This, however, is by far the most interesting (and expensive) product shoot I've ever done. When the first question you're asked upon arriving is, "Where would you like the plane?", you know its going to be a fun shoot.
Unfortunately, it was a rainy day which required us to shoot inside the hangar vs. outside. The ground crew at Teterboro Airport accommodated us by moving this plane to allow for mostly unobstructed views. We started with the outside, then moved in.
The owner of this beautiful Falcon 900EX is making it available to charter. This generated a request from the charter company, Landmark Aviation, to have images featured on their aircraft data sheet to show prospective clients. They connected us with the pilot, Bruno, for a tour of the plane and help with any requests we had during the shoot.
Bruno told us about the updated interior and, as you can see from the images, everything is immaculate. Looking back, I laugh that I brought windex and paper towels as a "just in case" - NOT needed!
For a shoot like this, it's always better to have another highly competent person with you to cover the job properly. Theresa Keil of Keil Studios Photography has worked with me on many jobs and helped create some great images on this shoot as well. To add some color, I worked with a local florist, New Providence Florist for the short-stemmed yellow roses.
