I was recently hired by the Boston Convention and Marketing Center to photograph the Hynes Convention Center. The client and I had scouted several locations from which to get elevated views of the Boylston St facade. We found a couple of buildings on Boylston St that offered decent views, but it would mean shooting through glass. Another vantage point was offered to me by the good fireman of Ladder Company 15. "We'll just pull the truck out and set up the ladder however you'd like" said the lieutenant. And that's just what they did when we showed up a few days later. It was steep, but fairly stable and was indeed a good vantage point. Generated some interest from passerby. The shoot was cut short when they had to answer a call. But I was able to get a good overview of the building. And partially fulfilled the "wanna be a fireman" dream most boys have.
