2012 500 Abarth 08 - Press Kit by notbland 2012 500 Abarth 08 - Press Kit by notbland
2012 Fiat 500 Abarth.
Los Angeles, CA. September 18, 2011.
Official Press Release Photography.

The Halloween Special. :D


Announced today; the Abarth is coming stateside!

I had the privilege to spend the past five weeks shooting and editing the vehicle in both California and Michigan. Roughly 70 hours of photography, 180+ hours of post-production. I'll be posting the rest of the series once the car is officially unveiled at the LA Auto Show in November.

Whoa, is this a real location shoot?

Sure is. Seriously impressive place, too. They're stacked six-tall, and that far wall was 30-long. The wall alone was $1.5 million in shipping containers. The whole storage facility probably had $6-7 million in containers.

That is bloody awesome! You certainly did the location justice w/ this shoot.
Looks like it ought to be part of some 007 action sequence.

AND, notably, you've accomplished something I thought was impossible: somehow... made a Fiat look totally badass.

Well, that wasn't MY doing; thank Abarth for that. :D

And yeah, this location actually gets used a lot for television and film. Several of the locations we used for this session were used by the Fast & Furious franchise. You'll see. ;)

That is a fantastic shot! It has to be one of my favorites of yours for sure. The color isolation/reduction really worked here. Composed just right and the background is what really makes the shot for me. Do you have any other shots of the location, without the car even?

Hey, thanks man! I do have some behind the scenes with this location; I'll be posting everything in a Behind the Scenes album on my Facebook fan page, after the car is unveiled. :)
