Location scouting at PEK

January 17, 2012 4:01 am

I’m in Beijing shooting part one of an advertising campaign for China Southern Airlines. Part two will come next month at the airline’s home airport in the city of Guangzhou. But for some reason we’re shooting the first part here in Beijing. The problem with shooting outside of the home airport is the incredible amount of bureaucracy in trying to produce the job. But after 2 days of finagling they decided to let us visit the location today. Below are some pictures I made — and the last shot is just a treat that came across at lunch after the airport.

    Reed, an exciting assignment for you. Cool! Great irony in the shot of the guy riding the three-wheeled bicycle (tricycle?) thru the hangar beneath state-of-the-art Boeing and Airbus aircraft. Wish I were there with you! I LOVE photo shoots but mine are mundane compared to yours. The big difference is your locations: Lots more fun that the cornfields I find myself in.
