I have friend of mine who is a model and she has aquired a fireman's outfit and the permission to use a fire house here in the area. She is wanting me to do the shoot and I am wondering if anyone has done a shoot of this nature and could give me some tips and may have some examples to see.

If you gonna have a truck or engine in the background...make sure you have a LARGe diffusion source or light panel... those trucks have a LOT of chrome and can make for nasty hot spots... I would also make sure you light the background as well as the model even if it is just using some slaved vivitar 283's...

Bunker coats and babes? Nah, never done it!



Like the other gent mentioned, most appartus is shiny and has lots of chrome. It's also very photogenic. The bunkroom and showers can be put to good use, as well. Depending on how old the house is, if ya got a brass pole, well... you can put your imagination to work!

Have fun!

Joe McNally wrote a short article including this subject in Popular Photography magazine. As soon as I find the link, I'll post it.

In addition to the chrome, watch out for the Scotchlite/Reflexite tape on the apparatus, which will play havoc with your flash.

Shooting in the firehouse is very cool...but make sure the powers to be give you permission or it might lead to big trouble.

My father was a firefighter for many years. Be careful of having the name of the department visable in the shots for their PR protection. You might even want to came up with some kind of release for them to sign. It never hurts to cover all your bases.

Even with permission, it can be a problem. The model was an old friend whose boyfriend was a firefighter, boyfriend's father was assistant department chief. She wanted to surprise him with some glamour shots in the firehouse done while he was on a trip. We got permission from boyfriend's captain to shoot using an auxiliary truck in a secondary building. I was careful to not include identifying markings in the shots. So, how did the story end? Department scandal, story in the Washington Post and nationally syndicated radio show, the captain suspended for 90 days and boyfriend breaks up with her.
