Brooke and the 50 year-old Cub Cadets

I’ve always felt that tractors never get their due respect, those amazing workhorses that just go on and on, doing their chores day in and day out. But even less-respected are the little tractors: the garden tractors that seem to wind up being left out behind the shed after they lose their charm, only to rust away in the weeds. But my friend Jeremy has a soft spot in his heart for these little mechanical marvels. He lovingly restores them and treats them like the little gems they are. So I only thought it fitting to start a series of old-school pinup shoots with them. Our first shoot features Brooke, all 5’10” of her. Shot entirely with battery-powered speedlights (or “speedlites, in Canon jargon), here are a couple of my favorite shots.
