Ever wondered how they shot those photos in the motorcycle accessory ads you see in the glossy magazines? Here’s your chance to witness a photographer laying in the back of a flatbed truck, holding a $30,000 Hasselblad just inches from the pavement while photographing a motorcycle rider doing wheelies at 70MPH. Check out the Behind-The-Scenes Film: Three Days On Location with Commercial Photographer Gregor Halenda.

    Great link. I’ve always admired photographers who can make magic like this.

    Amazing to see the amount of effort that goes into making the catalogue shots! Surprised with the BMW enduro shots, seems out of character with the brands image….still good work though.

    I used to work for a magazine, so I know how much photographers get nervous about ruining their expensive equipment. This photographer has some real skill. I love the final result.

    That is amazing footage and photos. I was impressed before when I saw photos like this but, I have a whole new respect for the art. Makes me want to dust off the old 35mm and get back into shooting. Wait can you even get film developed anymore.
