Making of: Cargill Lifestyle

We were recently tasked to shoot a library of lifestyle images for Cargill with our friends at Blacktop Creative that centered around their premium burgers, friends, and…unfortunately for us, freaking cold temperatures.  The images tell a warm and springlike story, but the reality of this February production was a windy 28 degree day with few leaves on the trees.  Just out of frame on these outdoor shots were a dozen propane heaters blasting the set, and a fake tree (or 12) in the background to green things up.

 
No talent or crew got frostbite (that we know of), but we definitely needed a few adult hot beverages when we wrapped this one up!
 
Shot over 2 days, and 2 locations, below are the results with a dose of frosty Behind the Scenes.  Cheers!
