Planes, Trains & Automobiles

I was able to get access to some prime real estate in New Jersey for a shot of a Norfolk Southern intermodal train paralleling the New Jersey Turnpike and Newark International Airport.

And the catering wasn't too bad either! Swedish meatballs...

Behind the Scenes: Bend Your Knees

Yep, the excitement of road trip photo shoots is pretty much summed up in this picture: heavy camera cases, padlocks and bungee cords in the back of a Honda Element...Bend Your Knees.

Back from New Jersey...

I spent most of last week up in Northern New Jersey, photographing trains and cargo terminals...I think my lungs will be recovering for a couple more weeks. For the better part of a morning I was hanging out of a helicopter, shooting video with my Nikon D90 & stills with a D3. I mounted a KenLabs gyroscopic stabilizer to the base of my Captain Stubling rail system- heavy, but effective.

I've got some more footage to edit down into a movie about the July Critical Mass in Norfolk. Maybe I'll get some time for that tomorrow.
