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.

A September 2008 Editors First Pick.

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. #991779

Beau Hudspeth Photography September 03, 2008

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. #6407189
