Good morning to you all! Greetings from Phoenix, AZ where I am on the tail end of my two-week western road trip!
Last week I was in Vegas, with its beautiful bling skyline and bright city lights! Each October I travel to Vegas, “the city that never sleeps” to instruct at a photographic workshop. Most of our time is spent outside the city mentoring aspiring photographers at unusual desert locations, supported by a large group of experienced mentors, make-up artists and models. This year our instructional shoot locations included the Ghost Town in Nelson, the Ruins in Amargosa Valley and the Dry Lake Bed just outside of Primm.
Normally, my weekly blog is geared more to the commercial corporate aspects of my business but there always seems to be something very mesmerizing about the images we shoot in Vegas each October. This year was no exception so I hope you will allow me the opportunity to share a few with you. I’ll save the bright lights of Vegas for a future blog.
Each shoot location had its own very unique and distinctive look. The crashed fuselage at Nelson is probably the most photographed icon of the town while the Dry Lake Bed offers a very baron look with its cracked and desolate floor. Both locations are a perfect compliment to the beauty and artistry of the models and make-up artists.
On day two of the workshop we headed to the Ghost Town of Nelson, NV, which had a cameo appearance in the movie, “3000 miles from Graceland.” With its very eclectic and eccentric surroundings, the town has become one of the most photographed locations in and around Vegas.
Over the years our third shoot location, “The Ruins”, has become one of my favorite spots to shoot. Complimented by the beauty of an exceptional model, it may just be the perfect location to create my style of magic. Shooting at the Ruins is like hitting the jackpot.
Many thanks to models Naomi, Morgan and, with her return trip to the “Vegas Blog” for the second consecutive year, Ms. Maria. If you want to know more about the Supershoots workshops you can do so by going to Supershoots.com. Enjoy!!!
