I had a fashion shoot the other day, my favorite, and up until a few hours before the session I had NO IDEA where I was going to shoot! Yeah, that happens sometimes. I just get so tired of my usual places or sometimes my favorite places become inaccessible or overcrowded and when I shoot at the same places too often, I lose inspiration. I wanted something kind of grungy and industrial, I actually had a place in mind but it closed at 5 at which time I'd lose access to it, so I was getting a little bit desperate for something cool yet not over done.
So I found myself driving aimlessly searching for a cool scrap yard, warehouse or industrial site that would A. be accessible and B. inspire me. Just as I was about to give up and resort to shooting at one of my usuals spots I came across the coolest abandoned house. We photographers are suckers for a good abandoned house and good ones are getting harder and harder to come by these days. So I was stoked to find this place tucked away, off the beaten path, nestled on a giant over grown field (another location type I have an absolute weakness for) and the best part? It's not even 5 minutes away from my house! Score!
So, I had the perfect combination for what was bound to be an amazing shoot; a rockin' location, a beautiful subject and spectacular lighting. Due to this crazy weather we've been having, we've been blessed with some pretty awesome skies and sunsets and this particular evening did not disappoint.
So here are the results of what has gone down in my book of favorite photo sessions.
As always, your feedback is welcome and much appreciated!
