Shootin’ on the Dock of the Bay

Mobile, Alabama—Ad agency Red Square hired CDP to capture some of the action at one of the country’s busiest ports. For me, it was an assignment from heaven. Sure, it was hot with 1000% humidity, but there were compelling images around every corner. Although we only had a couple days to shoot, the layouts called for photo collages, so the agency told us, “Just go out and shoot what you see.” This involved riding in a monster crane, climbing aboard a 700-foot cargo ship, and cruising in a working locomotive. Can you say kid in the proverbial candy store?
