Car Photography at a Dallas Rooftop

Cruising around downtown Dallas – shooting, shooting and scouting for even more locations to shoot – young and hungry car photographer Pepper Yandell and his crew somehow managed to also do their very first behind-the-scenes video. And it is pretty amazing.

“The photoshoot is for AuteSource Dallas and HRE Wheels,” Pepper told the guys over at Fstoppers in a recent post. “AutoSource gave me the keys to their 1,200HP Jotech Stage 6 Widebody Nissan GT-R repainted in Lamborghini’s Verde Ithica color, and my current favorite car, the Ferrari 458 Spider. I already had some locations picked out, and then we scouted out the rest as we were cruising around town. The first location was simply some containers we stumbled across as we were driving down the street from AutoSource. The second location was my buddy’s warehouse, the Dallas Automobile Storehouse in Addison, TX. The last location was this shut down, under construction hotel + parking garage my friend Nathan the construction manager got us access to.”

Note that even though Pepper had a crew with him, most of them were busy filming the video and doing the bts shots. The final stills (which you will find below) were done with only one or two D1 monoglights, which were repositioned between each exposure and layered in postproduction to give the cars that glittering, larger-than-life feel.

Considering that this is Pepper and his crew’s very first behind-the-scenes video, we cannot wait to see what they will come up with next…

      Hi Lars,

      That’s a shame, but I’m afraid there’s nothing we can do about it. Blame the music industry..

      Nice name, by the way.
