Witches of the Desert

Adventure/Travel, Portraits

Have you seen the movie, “The Witch”?

Me too, and it’s my favorite movie ever. No, really.

If you haven’t seen it, go. do. now.

Anyway, the last scene of the movie, without revealing too much, involves a coven of witches chanting around a fire and rising up into the air! Being a photographer with a penchant for horror type things meant that I NEEDED to make photos that were inspired by that amazing climactic scene!

We chose to shoot this at one of my favorite locations out here in Nevada, Moon Rocks, out near Pyramid Lake. I love Moon Rocks as a location, it has so much potential and is so huge you really can’t go wrong!

Enjoy the photos!

Afternoon Dudeoir

Portraits

Who says boudoir is only for the ladies?

Its not.

Boudoir is for every body!

Kyle absolutely crushed it with his afternoon dudeoir shoot! He was nervous going into it but he came out of the session with a newfound confidence and I think we can all agree that he did a fantastic job! Thanks bro!

The Outback Lives Up To Its Name

Adventure/Travel

As many of you know, I’ve moved to Reno. Well, one of my most favorite past times is exploring the area surrounding where I live. I did it in the Bay Area and found some incredible spots that I never would have if I hadn’t set out to get myself lost and see what happens.

This last weekend my buddy Aden and I went out to the desert to shoot our guns and fly his drone. Well it turns out we both have Subarus and after all the ammo was gone we figured we’d explore the surrounding desert and see how capable our Japanese wonder wagons really are.

Spoiler alert: They’re VERY capable off the road!

We both easily conquered sand dunes my truck-driving buddy Nick was reluctant to tackle. We even tried to get stuck in the deep sand and just could not do it!

Subaru, if you’re reading this, I love your products very much and would LOVE to be a Subaru Ambassador!

Oh and we even found the wreckage of some cars that were not as capable and were apparently left to rot on the trail by their owners. Sad.

Chasing the Sun

Adventure/Travel, Portraits

Ever since I moved here to Reno I’ve fallen in love with the look and feel of the high desert and especially the light you get when the sun is just about to set and you get these amazing colors on the mountains and the air is gorgeous and atmospheric and beautiful.

The goal on this shoot was to capture images of Lauren in that natural beauty. However, we were caught off guard by the fact that on the easter side of this particular set of hills, the sun sets in a matter of minutes.

We started off the shoot in a little valley full of these beautiful sage bushes and got maybe 20 or so shots before the sun had dipped past the mountains and left us in a weird blue colored dusk.

So we set off to find the last little bit of the sunlight and ended up in this cool little sliver of light that we used to our advantage for the 2.5 minutes it was there.

Have a look and see what we were able to make in such a short period of time!
