So many shoots in the last few weeks! I’m trying very hard to remain caught up.

This shoot was a sort of impromptu photo meet and greet (Meet and Shoot). I had decided it’s time for me to start doing the kinds of community and relationship building I will need to do.

It’s more about how I really need to get outside my comfort level. Every time I go outside my comfort level, I get amazing results.

Vail Abandoned Warehouse Photo Scouting/Shoot

Not sure what the warehouse was used, but it’s pretty vast and really close to the train tracks. Some type of shipping or receiving building? Someday I will research it.

So, for the Abandoned Vail Warehouse, I first did a short shoot with my wife helping. I took several reference photos and did a quick round with my camera as a video camera. That preceded the other shoot by about a week.

Here is the short video I put up on Youtube for the same day’s shoot. I didn’t give it any music. Photos are below that.

Here are the photos from that one:

So, next I got Sarah Slaykitty to help me with some modeling. She is an amazing model, too. She always surprises me.
