Yesterday brought a little bit of the big city to Steamboat Springs and the ranch. A crew of about 25 people from Eddie Bauer rolled in at 7am to use the ranch for a catalog photo shoot. Luckily, we’re still holding on to winter at the ranch so there was enough snow in the meadows. We shuttled them around on snowmobiles to and from the Homestead cabin, as well as provided some horses who got to hang out with their Italian model. We even had Zag hooked up to the bobsled for one shot. The best part of the sleigh shot was that Jess was all set as the driver, but they didn’t want him in the shot (poor Jess) so he had to crouch down out of eyesight of the camera, but ready to jump on and drive in the event that Zag decided he needed to go somewhere. Luckily, it was such a nice, warm, sunny day that Zag quickly realized there was nowhere better to go and took a cat nap while the models did their best to look enthralled that they were about to go on a pretend sleigh ride, and photographers, make up artists and stylists hovered around them. The crew was the best we’ve ever worked with and were respectful of the ranch and very professional. It was a long day of shooting and Jess, Grahm, Rachel and Charlie all stuck it out from 6:30am until 7pm….but we had some fun laughs, enjoyed a gorgeous spring day, and shook up our routine a bit. We are a little worried that Zag might have a Diva complex though…..
