The story was about three NCAA Quarterbacks who are vying for top NFL draft spots. The image they wanted was of the three of them sitting in an office waiting room as if they're being interviewed for a job.

The tricky part was that they were located in Louisiana, Kentucky, and California. I had to travel with a mini set to each of them, shoot them in hotel conference rooms and put them into a background that I created from parts I gathered along the way. The door and plant in the final image are from Lexington, the wall is from Baton Rouge, and the clock is from LA. We traveled with the carpet and one chair. Needless to say, there was a fair amount of flying, careful measuring, and retouching involved.
