Here is a shot of my son on his 'hawg' being pulled over by, of all people, his grandpa!

I had the idea for this shot last year but was unable to 'get it together' till this one. They both were great sports about the shoot and I think you can tell in the final image.

On a side note: no citations were issued on this stop - I think nepotism played a factor.

    this has to be the best setup ever. lmao you certainly pulled off an awesome production with this and the mechanics of the picture are possibly perfect. this should definately be in the winners circle this month. I would frame it in like 50 X 70 and have it the centerpiece of my biggest wall. great job.

Thanks so much Patric for the high praise!

As I said, I had a year to think about how I wanted to shot this shot, but when it all came down to it, my 'models' made it really easy for my and we were done in about 10 minutes.

Oh my goodness, I just found this one... what a great shot - how did you keep everyone from laughing all the way through this shoot? I would have been jiggling the camera as I laughed way too much for a clear image. This is great! I love the POV, the expression on the driver - super in all ways! Congratulations!!! I am sure Grandpa wants a large print to post at the "office" LOL!

So, so funny!

Hope that speeding ticket didn't break his piggy bank!
