This is the shoot that started my obsession with Detroit. Growing up in Brighton (45 minutes west of the city), the idea of going to Detroit wasn't a thought in my mind. People didn't go to Detroit to shoot, people went to Detroit to get shot. Fortunately, that isn't the case anymore, and now I spend as much time downtown as possible.
For this shoot, I did a little walking tour of Greektown with Ellis. The highlight of the evening was a fire truck parked right on Monroe Avenue. We seized the moment, and Ellis posed for some shots in front of the truck. As we were shooting, onlookers were taking pictures of us and traffic stopped to watch the show. It was a pretty cool, and I now have the fire truck shot below hanging in my office as a reminder of the evening.
