Skechers Advertising with Brooke Burke

with 5 comments

Here is a very recent ad we shot for Skechers with Brooke Burke.  You may remember her from the “Wild On” travel series on E!, and of course countless men’s magazines.  Well she’s a mom of 3 girls now and even has her own line of mom and baby products at babooshbaby.com

We shot at the same time Skechers was filming a TV commercial with her on location in Los Angeles.  These kind of jobs are always a challenge as our still photography crew definitely plays second fiddle to the film crew.  We went into the day understanding that we would only have about an hour with Brooke to shoot the ads, and we were scheduled to get her at about 3PM.  We had to set up our little studio in the driveway of the location… definitely not a plush situation, but to be expected for this kind of shoot.  We were ready to go at 3, but didn’t get Brooke until about 6PM, well after the sun had gone down.  Again, it’s sort of expected so we were prepared to shoot in the dark.  But because the TV commercial was now running late we had a grand total of only 12 minutes to shoot our ad!  It meant we had to get Brooke into position and just shoot and shoot as much as I could fit into those 12 minutes.  I crossed my fingers that we didn’t have a technical glitch… even a simple crash of the computer would have wiped out our entire shoot time.  But everything worked flawlessly and we managed to get in 290 frames and about 3 different set ups, a decent amount for the client to work with.  And Brooke was a pro, every frame we shot was usable which is really rare.

  2. Wow, I have no idea about the shirt, sorry….. We didn’t deal with the clothes, that was all up to the stylist working on the TV commercial.
