In between race weekends and product shooting, a lot of my time behind the lens is spent shooting in tandem with other, usually larger productions for commercial campaigns.
From pre-production to publish, I usually fill the smaller role of shooting behind-the-scenes, creating content for tandem campaigns across PR, digital, social media, print, or out-of-home channels. It’s work I enjoy but don’t often get to talk about, given specific usage rights or extended wait time between production and publish.
But now that season 4 of Lexus’ “0 to 60: Engineered by Lexus” is in the books, I can finally share some snaps I took behind the scenes of filming their Episode 8 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA.
This was doubly fun for me. Driving instructors for the episode were none other than IMSA’s winningest driver, Scott Pruett, along with current IMSA / Aim Vasser Sullivan / Lexus IMSA GT-D drivers Townsend Bell and Jack Hawksworth, who I’d shot just the week before at Mid-Ohio.
And if that wasn’t enough, the day included an enthusiast component headed by Super Street magazine and the one and only Sam Du.
