Costa – Bluefin Tuna

Not sure if we can go any bigger than what we did this time! Mark built three more fish for Costa, among them a Steelhead Salmon, a Bonefish and an 11 foot Bluefin Tuna.  Check out the impressive ‘making of’ and the stills from this series.  We’re now up to 8 fish.  Still no CGI, still no digital imaging, just fantastic art direction, model making and a few lighting tricks up my sleeves to capture each of them in-camera, in a single shot.

Costa – designed for fishing, obviously…

New Costa fish + ‘making of’

Yes, still no CGI, still no digital imaging.  Two more fantastic fish for ‘Costa’, maker of exceptional eyewear for sports fisherman.  Wonderful model making again by artist Mark Borow and a little bit of lighting.  Click here to see the new dorado and sailfish (life size).
