I was recently given the pleasure by Frank + Victor Design in Austin, TX to photograph the studio portion of the 2013 Tigé boats catalog. I shot it over 7 days at a studio that we built at the Tigé boats factory. We decided to build a studio rather than transport the boats to dallas due to transportation costs and studio rental. I hung 2 20x silks from the ceiling and bounced light from them. I used 3 profoto acute2 packs, 6 acute d4 heads, and 2 profoto d1 500 air monolights. This was mainly shot with a canon 1Ds mark III.
I had an extremely small crew (just me and my assistant) and I am very pleased with the way everything turned out. After the shoot, I spent about 70 hours retouching in order to make sure that the product looked as flawless as possible.
Tigé boats is known as an ultra premium wake boarding boat manufacturer. They have a global dealer network, and it was truly a pleasure to shoot this. Thanks to Tigé and Frank+Victor Design. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!
