In the 1930s, Breitling’s Huit Aviation department made its name inventing precision cockpit clocks. Two decades later Breitling’s history is still inseparable from that of flight, a point which is beautifully illustrated in this elegant spot for their Super AV collection, directed by Bradley Wentzel.
"This was filmed in Virginia Beach, and it was over 100 degrees with high humidity, which made it challenging to shoot.", Bradley remembers. "We shot all of the aerials in the morning so the air was much cooler while flying, but the interviews and ground shots were pretty grueling since they had to happen later in the day." Regardless, Bradley was very happy with the footage they filmed, and with the resulting spot.
Bradley has shot warbirds, modern planes, and aircrafts of the future, working with a number of brands including TIME, Kodiak, Joby Aviation, and Discovery. He enjoys bringing a unique perspective to aviation photography by leaning into his diverse experiences in the industry for inspiration. He enjoys the thrill of receiving a new brief and developing impactful creative. If you want to collaborate with Bradley, or learn more about this particular shoot, drop him a direct message.
