Marquese Scott - M&C Saatchi

I got a call to do an interesting shoot for M&C Saatchi.  I was told the shoot would take place from 6pm to midnight at The Great Wall of Oakland.  I would be photographing dancer Marquese Scott dancing down the side of the 115' wall.  Obviously I couldn't say no to that.

Marquese is a known for his dance style that makes it seem as if he's defying gravity so the creatives at M&C Saatchi thought it would be a good idea to have Marquese actually defy gravity by dancing on the wall 115' in the air. It was  a pretty amazing thing to watch considering Marquese was afraid of heights and had never done anything like this before. 

The project was for Ballentine's.  You can see the video they made here.

Here's a BTS shot by my assistant Mike Byrne.  Believe me, leaning over the side was scary enough for me.
