While in Dubai we heard about these abandoned planes out in the desert. We went out to scout it and saw the potential it had for some images. The next day we got up super early to get to this spot before sunrise. Driving an hour to get there and imagining this beautiful light over the desert. Unfortunately, this day was completely overcast and it stayed foggy for hours. We had to laugh because, getting up that early had been pointless. Towards the afternoon the fog started to burn off and we began to shoot.
This was the last shot of the day. Jason Paul, the Red Bull Athlete in this photo actually did two other tricks off the front of the plane before we shot this one, which were more difficult and challenging moves. However, that doesn't always register in a photograph. In the end, I think it’s the feeling of Jason and the plane being together that makes it so special, as opposed to this plane just being an obstacle for him to do tricks off of. I shot this with a Canon 5d Mach II with a 70-200mm lens.
