Everything about Pagani reeks of quality. That’s why even pictures of the car must come out perfect.
New Yorkers like to walk around like they’ve seen everything. And for the most part they have. In rural areas that aren’t as forgiving to outsiders, it’s not common to walk to a train station and see a homeless man in high heels playing violin, dancing, and singing at the top of his lungs because his next meal depends on impressing all the tourists. But that, along with the 24 year-old finance bro in his Porsche 911, is New York in the fragment of a nutshell.
However, given the sheer rarity of a hypercar like the Pagani Huayra BC, the fact that New Yorkers stop and pay attention when one of only 20 BC copies revs its 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine from AMG goes to show that the city’s inhabitants haven't seen everything. And neither have most people for that matter.
That’s why a professional photographer like Richard Thompson exists. His job is simply to find the best way to shoot the car so that it looks stunning in photographs that will be seen by millions who will either recognize the Huayra BC instantly or be left wondering what on Earth they're looking at. Getting a good angle might not seem like a tall order with such a gorgeous model, but then again Paganis aren’t held in high regard because Horacio Pagani likes to skimp on quality. Attention to detail in the entire process is needed to keep the Huayra BC's prestige, and Thompson does well to both exercise his incredible skills with the camera in this shoot and tell us a little bit about how it’s done. You know, in case this is your dream job or something.
