These are a few highlight images from the eighty photos produced for our lifestyle shoot with Mercedes Benz USA’s accessories collection. Months of preproduction finally came together one dewy, 4:00 AM call time in historic Forest Park in St. Louis. After a very fast-paced day of eighteen shots across three park locations, the crew was at it again early the next morning at the Four Seasons Hotel (this is a very loose use of the term “morning,” as 2 AM better qualifies as the middle of the night, if you ask me.) Eight shots in the hotel suite, eight more on the terrace, and the crew was ready for a 7AM lunch (?!) and to head downtown to finish up with the last twelve shots. And BAM! That’s a wrap! (Now everyone can take a deep breath and go to sleep for a week.) The successful shoot was followed by a few more months of postproduction. Everyone was happy to see the fruits of their labor go live on the Mercedes Benz website late last Autumn.
