ARCO LOCATION SCOUT

RECCO

First choice is W. Highland as it has 2 solid hero options (1 with AMPM and 1 without). That location also has the best light for daytime and dusk/evening. The cement had some oil stains but I think we can avoid shooting into it, and we always have retouching to clean it up in case we do see some. There’s also an empty dirt lot across the street as potential parking.

Second choice would be Cactus. Nice clean station but we have buildings in the background as well as a Wendy’s attached to the AMPM (I’m sure we can retouch the signage if need be). The drawback would be sunset shots would cast hard long shadows across the station.

 

VAN BUREN ARCO

The pumps are pretty dirty and used. 

 

CACTUS ARCO

Nice pumps, other buildings in background, feels newer than Van Buren.

 

W HIGHLAND ARCO

Lots of oil stains on concrete, nice pumps, options for hero shots, one without AmPm.
