Fire Department Photo Series

February 12, 2013  •  1 Comment

I am excited about a new photography project I will be undertaking.  I spoke today with Lincoln Fire Chief Mark Mann and I will be doing a series of photos related to our fire department.  It will consist of four different projects.  First I will do a contemporary take on the "group line-up" showing the department's firemen with their main engine. I really want to make this photo unique, gritty, and modern. This will be followed by a pictorial history of the fire department.  Here I will use post-production techniques to age the photos to their date specific eras.  Third, I plan on doing an action shot depicting the firefighters on the job.  The key here will be to capture the intensity of the fire call.  Finally, I will be updating their traditional "mug shots" for the wall in the department. A little more tame, but I think they deserve well planned photos for display, it's a morale thing. The first three projects will not be your typical images.  My goal is to use modern lighting techniques and other methods to create conservation pieces for the Department.  This should be fun...
