This week I had the great opportunity to shoot portraits of a select group of Cox Oklahoma employees on location at the Waterford Hotel, which is across the street from Cox’s corportate headquarters in OKC. The final images will appear in a television ad that will run in Oklahoma markets soon during a sale promotion, so I will keep those images hidden for now, and instead share some fun outtakes with you of a few of the models. Outtakes like these make the final cut on my shoots frequently, because they capture both the fun atmosphere on our set and offer a glimpse of the personalities of these great people. Look at these smiles!
Somewhat miraculously, everyone scheduled for a portrait actually made it to the set – and on time! This despite a morning of Murphy’s Law at work, including a flat tire, 20-minute shooting windows, one person coming in on their day off and another after working all night, and another inadvertently stepping into 8 inches of wet paint while working that morning. 🙂 Good rally!
A special thank you to Katherine, fellow tog and friend, for assisting me yet again for this project (she’s also helped out at Keystone School and with Campbell‘s portraits). For shoots like this one, it’s so helpful to have an extra pair of hands! Thank you, Kat.
Sometimes, it’s easy to forget that behind a big company like Cox, there are a lot of really sincere, hard working people, like these guys. It was truly a pleasure to work with all of you, and I am excited to see the commercial! Hope to see you all again down the road.
P.S. Can I get free HBO?
