Last week, our Assignment Desk team headed to Ridgeville, S.C. to shoot the groundbreaking for Volvo’s first manufacturing plant in North America. The Swedish company’s North American CEO, Lex Kerssemakers, celebrated the unveiling with prominent political figures, South Carolina Governor, Nikki Haley; Charleston Mayor, Joe Riley; SC Senator, Tim Scott; and SC Senator, Lindsey Graham. Check out a few behind the scenes photos below!

As you can see in the photos, mud was a big challenge for us that day, but overall the shoot went seamlessly. We used a Canon 5d mkIII, 24-105 and zoom H4N. Shout out to Senator Tim Scott for taking the time to snag a selfie with one of our crewmembers, Jason! We had a great time on this shoot and wish Volvo the best of luck in its new territory!
