Damn, very nice. Mind telling me what you have between the suction cup and the super clams? Some sort of extensions?

Yeah, just an extension so that I can be more dynamic with the positioning of the rig and get it either higher or lower. For example on the Zonda the windscreen is at quite a steep angle so if I didn't have the extension on the lower suction pad the pole (4.5m) would have been too low and rubbing on the ground.

I can't remember the part number or even where I got it, but it's an umbrella holder from memory :)

Yeah I noticed that and immediately needed to know what it was because I may need to buy some. Good thing I actually just received 3 of those for my speedlights last week :D

Incredible. How long is the boom?

One more question, GFWilliams. How were you able to keep the secondary car in focus on the photo facing back?

Wow, completely awesome shots... was it hard to get those owners to trust you putting giant suction cups on their nearly priceless toys? :)

It's a composite. I actually think I executed this one a LOT better:

I'm lucky that the first car I ever rigged was an Enzo so I've got the line of "Don't worry, I've stuck it on an Enzo". That calms the owner down and I'm very very careful with the rig, not attaching the next stage until I'm 100% happy that it's both secure and won't do damage.
The only person who ever said no to me rigging their car was the Veyron owner :(

My first rig shot (3m boom):

(I know it's rubbish, but will re-do it over easter probably)

I have a 16ft boom...from aluminum pipe I bought at home depot..only cost me 30 bucks for 1.5 OD inch pipe and couplers I don't know why some pay so much for pipe lol

Sure you bought aluminum piping? Home depot doesn't sell aluminum piping/tubing from what I know (at least the 3 stores around me don't sell any). If they did, it definitely wouldn't be $30 for 16' of it. I'm assuming you mean EMT piping... EMT piping is not aluminum, it's steel.

True 6061 aluminum tubing is far superior for rig applications. It's lighter, has better springback and distorts much less compared to cheap EMT.
