The Laptad Team went to Phoenix, Arizona to shoot the 5-11 catalogue at the Fire Fighters Traning Center. Temperatures all week were in the high 90's while we shot fire fighters and medics doing what they do best. The most interesting part of the shoot was watching the trainees pile in a hot smoke box. These men and women were being trained to not panic in a situation where there was black smoke and fire blazing over their heads!
Our next shot was covering a car accident and our lovely Stylist, Mariva, got to play the hurt victim while Dani, our stylist/model, was the role of one of the paramedics. It is never a dull moment working with 5-11!
We get to work with firefighters, swat teams and cops. There is definitely a difference in personalities between all of them but fire fighters as a whole are the friendliest. I don't think Mariva or Amarett were ready to leave at the end of the week. ;)
