Another Corvette Dealer poster. The budget was better than we had to work with on the first poster that is shown below. This one is in full color and is a photograph made specifically for this use. This picture was made by Warren Winstanley and you can see his shadow next to the guy with his arms raised. That guy is me. The location is the Detroit Metropolitan Beach parking lot. This was a situation that was conceived on the spot. We were there with four Corvettes to shoot a cover photo for a direct mail piece and I had prepared the check point sign and other things to make a checkpoint photo for the poster. The shadow from our high stand suggested it might make a good composition so I had the white Corvette moved into position and we made this picture. The fellow holding the sign was our apprentice art director and the others were part of Warren's crew.
