Shooting a Dinosaur Commercially

The day was humid, but what I was shooting was just too good that I didn’t mind sweating to my bones- didn’t need a shower after the shoot was done though.

Haegus of Hi Plant Services had contacted me to shoot his latest inclusion into the fleet of vehicles- the JCB Dinosaur water tank which he intends to use as plant hire. The JCB Dinosaur is a massive water tank pulled by JCB Fastrac 4×4. Magnificent machine and I was looking forward to shooting it. But we had to postpone the shoot three times due to rain last week. Finally today we got together at Treeby residential development project and had a go at taking commercial shots of the JCB for their website.

After the shoot was done, of course, I got to take the JCB Dinosaur for a spin.

Update – The resulting photographs from the shoot are published here. This was one of my Industrial Shoots.
