Art Director: Don Wilson

There have been other times, Meola says, when art directors have hired him to make images well beyond the scope of his normal work. On one occasion, an agency in Connecticut called him to do air-to-air photography for a helicopter booklet.

"I had never done any air-to-air work," he says."It's a whole other discipline--and I wasn't too crazy about helicopters to begin with. We had three unbelievable close calls, but it was fun. There was something about it that was incredibly energetic."
