Below are 3 portraits of a wind turbine technician in rural Colorado. I brought out the lights for this final environmental portrait of Chris. Earlier in the day we climbed up a turbine (basically a looooong ladder straight up the base) and walked around on top of the Nacelle. That was something I have wanted to do for a long time… now I’d love to rope-up and rappel down a blade 🙂
This time-lapse video is another portion of my construction shoot up in North Dakota recently. The crews set this 32,000 sq. ft. building in 6.5 days – a stunning process to behold. It is a neat addition to the traditional still photographs I captured during the construction – and this video really shows the process in a visually interesting way especially since the final version of this in full HD.
Witnessing a crew creating a 32,000 sq ft. building in 6.5 days is the epitome of the entrepreneurship, grit and the staggering pace found in the oil boom area in North Dakota. I can’t say that I enjoyed every moment of this project (the average temp. was 22.3 degrees!) but I absolutely enjoy the wild-west feeling and spirit of the Boomtown, and love working and making pictures there.
