Early September found our photo shoot crew in Kansas City, taking pictures of the new LEO pedestrian/street LED light. We were lucky enough to get permission to shoot at the stunning Nelson-Atkins Art Museum, located close to the Country Club Plaza. The combination of the original neoclassical architecture, with the sleek new Bloch addition was a wonderful backdrop for LEO, designed by John Rizzi and Clanton Associates, Inc.
Actually, several years ago we did a photo shoot for our Scarborough bench in the Plaza area. That photography was so cool, sales soared for that bench after posting those images on our website, and printing new literature and direct mail. We were happy to return to the area.
Engineers Rick Utting and Dave MacKellar provided technical support from Landscape Forms, and also served as helpers to haul the two lights around the museum campus. Our favorite models, Hartley and Krista were on location with us, too.
Usually our photo shoots start at dawn, and last all day into the evening to catch the beautiful lighting provided by sunrise and sunset. For the first time, we had to shoot the lit lights before dawn, and after sunset to accurately portray the lighting pattern. Our long days got even longer!
And no trip is complete in Kansas City, without BBQ at the original Arthur Bryants.
