Photographing the 1955 Packard Patrician – Finished Images and Behind the Scenes

1955 Packard Patrician-Rig Shot-JCHP

Hi Friends,

Packards are meant to be driven.  Just ask any Packard owner. So, when we approached Don H. about photographing his lovely 1955 Packard Patrician, the goal was to emphasize that aspect of Packard ownership.

Using an ultra lightweight boom with specialized automotive photography suction cups and clamps, we’re able to create the impression of high-speed when in fact the car is only moving at a walking pace.  Safe for the car. Safe for the driver.  And safe for the photographer.

(Special thanks to Booker and Bob for the assistance and the behind-the-scenes photos – I never seem to remember to take these!)

While we were shooting the Packard, this gorgeous lemon-yellow 1950 Nash Rambler rag-top rolled up on the scene.  Talked the owner into letting us rig it as well.  I thought it was pretty cool.
