Popular Science Big Machines

Excited to share another cover for Popular Science’s Big Machine Issue. Thanks Popular Science art department for the fun assignment and everyone at HOLT Cat for having us.

For this issue we headed out to HOLT Cat’s equipment yard in San Antonio to photograph their largest excavators. After capturing multiple options of the excavator buckets, we headed back to the studio to create the epic scene that would fill the hero bucket. Several models of aircraft carriers, battleships, buildings and various big machines were methodically styled and covered in 50 pounds of dirt. After some placement tweaking and dirt tossing our earth moving scene was complete.

Some behind the scenes shots of the cover in the making.

 

Popular Science Water Issue

Really excited about our latest Popular Science Water Issue cover and feature art. Thanks Thomas, Sean, Michael and all of the Popular Science art department for the awesome assignment.

Also huge thanks to aPhotoEditor for the interview about the making of this cover and feature art. Read the interview here.

 

A few behind the scene photos of what it takes to find the most perfectly aged vintage water spigot and knobs. Apparently sending your assistant to dig through a recycle yard produces amazing results.
