THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF SCOTT POMMIER | AIR FAST IMAGES FINALLY UNVEILED

Scott Pommier is alive and well in Paris! His latest work shot for FAST is a moving testament to his incredible eye and vision. FAST is a quarterly magazine, put out by the French advertising agency Born to Run. For each issue, they decide on a theme with a photographer, and have featured the works of– Henri Roy, Mathieu Cezar and Scott’s friend Dimitri Coste. The two first met on a Vans shoot and Dimitri was kind enough to introduce Scott to the folks who work on FAST, and planted the idea that they should work with him on an issue. It’s interesting to hear in Pommier’s own words how the shoot came together. It illustrates that having the balls to stick to your vision, even when the clock is against you, can pay off in big brass spades.

“Boeing Stearman A75N1. This plane was used to train American pilots in the 1930s. It was sold-off cheap in the 1950s and likely flown by Nicaraguan guerillas up thru the ’60s, riddled with bullet holes. It was recovered and restored to its original glory by Philipe Ciepiela, A French aviation enthusiast. Now it lives in a hangar outside of Paris once run by the Nazis.” – Scott Pommier

“When I came to Paris in October of last year, the Born to Run agency was one of my first stops. They asked me what I’d want to shoot for the next issue, and I had a few ideas– things that I thought would be easy enough to pull off in a short time-frame, with a tight budget. But the idea I was most excited to shoot was a cinematic fashion story involving vintage aircraft. I managed to convince them to help me find two 1930s bi-planes and two pilots who would be up for flying them in December– during some less than ideal weather.”  –Scott Pommier

“The agency really came through, and so I scrambled to find an assistant, a stylist and models. At one point it was looking like we wouldn’t be able to fly, it was going to be too windy and the clouds too low, so that’s when I made a last-minute call to Dimitri to see if he would make a guest appearance along with his father’s 1935 Norton 500 single. If I couldn’t shoot the planes in motion, having a running bike would at least allow me to capture some of the spirit and some of the movement that I had envisioned. In the end we were lucky and there was a brief window where we were able to fly. It was a very hectic day and the shooting was really compressed, but in the end, even though there were a hundred more setups I would have loved to shoot, it all came out very close to how I’d imagined from the outset. Shooting a seventy-something year-old piston-powered bi-plane over the french countryside is something that I will never forget.”  –Scott Pommier
