After a few years of creating these images of Peterbilts with Agnes Olech, here is the 1st comprehensive published editorial of this work. As you may know, Peterbilt made this idea famous starting back in the 1960s when they were selling an idea of “Class” to the owner/operator. They made calendars and magazine ads by photographing an elegantly dressed woman in front of their trucks. After coming across these images years ago, I decided to bring this idea back and knew just the actress to cast. Agnes Olech has an “Old Hollywood” look about her and my stylist Lindsey Dupuis has a great eye for vintage inspired, modern designed dresses. Please keep a look out for a couple 2013 calendars featuring my photography and production coming out soon.
Its was a pleasure to land the cover of France’s premiere Trucking Industry Magazine.
The story includes details about my vision for the shoot with Agnes Olech on the cover. Its Peterbilt’s 75th anniversary next year. This calendar pays homage to Peterbilt’s “Class Pays” campaign that included beautifully styled women with trucks from over 5 decades of design. Victoria Barabas, who I met on TV shoot for Dos XX last year, is the new actress featured this year seen here in the lower left.
Look for even bigger things from the 2015 edition of Chrome and Elegance!
Here are a few shots from the show in Texas a few weeks ago. You can preview and buy the Peterbilt “Class Pays” Display Show book by clicking here
There were over 30 Peterbilts in attendance and over 5000 people at the open house. This is the only factory in North America where Long Haul Peterbilt trucks are built. I will leave you with this aerial shot of the factory.
