These are the real deal….really big fire engines up close and personal! I can’t believe what a big kid I am when it comes to things like this, but I had a blast today at the Purcellville Fire & Rescue Department shooting some casual senior photos for Patrick John Pomata of Loudoun Valley High School. Patrick contacted me a week or so ago asking about a session at the fire house with his uniform and the trucks. I was intriqued (and so excited to get close to the big trucks …. did I mention I LOVE BIG TRUCKS?) and thought it would be fun to play with some off camera flash. In the end, although we played with the flash a bit, I think I like the natural light shots best as I really didn’t think beforehand about how reflective those BIG TRUCKS are! There will be plenty of times when that off camera flash will be handy, but it wasn’t really necessary today.
Patrick is a senior at Loudoun Valley High School, and volunteers for the Purcellville Fire Department too. I don’t know how he does it all, and I admire his dedication to community. He was up for anything I asked of him (and I was just getting warmed up, Patrick!) and my favorites are of him on the ladder truck in the BIG BUCKET.
If you are senior and want to have shots of your hobby, or favorite activity, or civic service like Patrick – consider my Basic Senior Session for two hours of photography. We can do A LOT in two hours! Lots of information on senior session offerings in my online brochure at www.pattyschuchmanseniors.com/SeniorInfo.
Patrick says he doesn’t want to drive the truck, and I probably wouldn’t either…but I bet it feels pretty cool to be in the drivers seat of one of these…..
