Product Photographer David Bell and Leatherman!

Posted on November 26, 2012

We are ecstatic to hear the great news about the Leatherman Raptor shears being featured on Uncrate. Designed for uniformed medics these scissors aren’t messing around. Our very own Product Photographer David Bell was lucky enough to get up close and personal with these cutting edge shears. Spending years with the Leatherman crew and their innovative products, David Bell is nothing short of awestruck! He enjoys making Leatherman’s products appear beautiful by highlighting their unique design and materials. David’s thought on Uncrate’s write up are easily wrapped up in one sentence:

The article, the product, the company it’s all COOL!

Now a few words from Product Photographer David Bell about shooting the Leatherman products all these years…

I try to make these as interesting and aggressive looking while showing all the great features and details. Getting to shoot the newest Leatherman tool is always very interesting. Being able to see the product before it’s released is one of the many benefits. These particluar shears are geared for  EMTs and field medics in the armed forces. They are designed to cut through anything and help the medics do a better faster job. When it’s an emergency that is exactly what you need.

I prefer to shoot with a Hasselblad H – 39, using wide angle lenses with HTS tilt shift adapter. I have the camera tethered to an iMac so I can view the images immediately during the shoot. When I am creating feature shots I shoot to a black or white background. For lighting I use Speedotron Studio Strobe Lighting – Grids, Spots and Floods. I look forward to many more years working with the Leatherman team and being first to view the latest products!
