John Ker Photography - Behind The Scenes commercial for Montrail Footwear

6/23/2011 ISO 1200 Magazine 0 Comments

Behind the scenes on my first project combining still photography and video. I decided to shoot a spec commercial for Montrail Footwear, a leader in the trail running shoe industry. Although the subject matter is a departure for my usual stuff, I tried to bring my photographic style to the project, which meant lots of artificial light.

This shoot was done over two days, on location near Hamilton, Ontario. This project was a huge learning experience for me, not to mention a lot of fun. Thanks to my awesome crew Sarah, Mike, Aubree, and Hugh for coming out and helping make it happen.

I've added a new section called "tech talk", at the end of the video, explaining some of the gear I used and other camera nerd information.

The spec commercial will be released sometime in July 2011.
