SUBGEAR catalog shoot, Key Largo

I love do commercial photo projects in my hometown of Key Largo, so was very happy when my friends at SUBGEAR suggested we shoot their catalog here over a long weekend in October. Unfortunately, when the winds blow there is no place to hide here, and blow they did, more than 20-knots on Saturday.

But, fortunately we had a good boat (thanks to friend Bob Coakley), gracious and willing models, and a passionate team of creatives ... so we persevered. Actually, we had a fair bit of topside to shoot for this catalog, mostly fashion shots showing SUBGEAR in use, so our in-water time was going to limited anyway. We dived the Aquarius Habitat, Molasses, and then another day headed north to dive the Civil War Wreck and the City of Washington. All great backgrounds for product shots with divers.

I wish we would have had the 100-foot vis we had on many days during my photo courses last summer, but the critters and elements of composition here made it a very productive three days. Here are some sample shots.
