Default My RV-7 was in a clothing catalog photo shoot

An ad agency's models and photographers spent a few hours today with my RV-7 doing a photo shoot for an OGIO ad campaign. We had fun playing with the airplane and motorcycle. When I asked if they wanted me to "photo bomb" one of the pictures, they said absolutely! And of course, I shared the other seat with one of the pretty ladies.

Yeah, I'm aware. Thanks Sherlock. She ran into the pic at the last second. The photo was actually supposed to be a little Instagram "gift" for my daughter who is a big Wil Higginson fan.

Alright children, I'm just sharing photos showing an example of how a Vans aircraft is going mainstream in an international high-end advertising campaign. Please leave your insecurities at home.

Models were flown in from London, Chicago and Paris for this photo shoot. Crew members came in from Seattle, Miami and Los Angeles. Just the travel costs alone for this project were staggering. I gave the director a choice of the Extra 330 or the Vans RV-7, and the RV-7 was chosen. Seems like sort of a big deal for the Vans brand.

Here's the airplane that lost out to the RV-7:

The first step is to admit you have a problem . My problem is in that pic I find myself looking at the plane more than the blonde. They're both beautiful but wow that RV is nice!! Beautiful pics!!

How did you get the gig?

I've done two of these, one with my L-4 (for a local clothing store's billboard campaign), and another with the JN-4C (article illustration for a Wall Street magazine). The first was a referral when the ad agency called around asking who had a WWII airplane. The magazine seems to have picked up an image on the internet, and tracked it via the N-number.

I'd call them both luck. Luck is good, but being proactive is better. Is there a "central casting" agency for airplanes?

Never assume. Her right hand may be, hmm, in his back pocket.
