POLICE GREENSCREEN PORTRAITS
This assignment was a commission to produce a 300 page photographic book on the work of the West Australian Police in all its varied roles. It was an awesome, very rewarding 18 month project that involved myself and Alexis Bachofen as the photographers. Eye in the Sky also produced the book.
At the end of every chapter, we shot a group or individual officers against a green screen background, then in post production this was removed and replaced with another. This has become a signature for the books we create.
Portraits in order as they appear; ARSON, ARSON (green-screen setup. ). TRG. POLAIR, POLAIR (setup). WATCH HOUSE. FORENSICS, FORENSICS (setup). TRAFFIC. BOMB DISPOSAL. HQ. COMPUTER CRIME. CONCEPT CAR. DIGNITARY PROTECTION. PIPE BAND. FREMANTLE. GOLD DETECTION SQUAD. KALGOORLIE / COOLGARDIE. MEDIA. PIPE BAND. REGIONAL OPERATIONS GROUP (ROG). TACTICAL RESPONSE GROUP (TRG).
