If there’s one person you can’t complain to about heat, its a fire fighter. Even when shooting the new Fire Fighter Training Facility in Visalia, CA, in 115 degree weather, with natural fires starting up all around town, (HAHAHAHA) well, we jumped in two feet first. Turnouts on and 250+ degree rooms waiting, this was one hell of an interior shoot! The walls were all rigged with propane and the experience of the space helps fire fighters work through the anxiety of a real fire situation. In many ways, this building can help save lives. Hopefully, my images will accurately show the value of this type of training facility and assist in obtaining funding to build more of them. More cities with burning buildings that is.
