So I just recently did a new SASCO Mine Shoot. For those that don’t know, SASCO is an abandoned mine in North Pima County north of Tucson. It used to be a smelter for copper mining in Tucson in the early 1900s.
This heavily graffitied concrete smelter is about all that exists now.
Now it’s a place for people to shoot their guns (no joke, I went there once and there was a guy there shooting a really loud, huge gun – sniper rifle?), ride around and pretend like they’re Mad Max, or shoot pictures of half-naked girls (like me).

I’ve been writing a lot lately about TFP and my desire to improve upon it. Why? It’s apparent that Time for Print is, in many ways, an outdated solution. It hasn’t fundamentally changed since the days of film and print (hence the name).
This site is just incredible. It’s huge like an aircraft hanger. It’s got the vertical beams keeping it all up, though. Meaning no big wide wings is all. 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.
In case you didn’t see the title of this post, I’ll reiterate: “Abandoned Vail Warehouse, Scottsdale, a Wedding, a Short Film, and the Sasco Shoot.”
This sums up my last couple weeks.
I rented a camera for a wedding on Saturday. Booked a shoot for Friday to try out the camera (Abandoned Vail Warehouse Photo Scout). Got a call that the wedding was being pushed forward due to rain. Booked another shoot for Saturday (Scottsdale). The wedding got moved to Sunday (The Wedding). I’ve been working on and off on a Short Film and that was Tuesday after the wedding (The Short Film). Finished off with another shoot on this last Friday at the SASCO Abandoned Mine (Sasco Shoot).
I’ve only really finished processing The Wedding and The Photo Scout. Lots of great images from the Scottsdale Shoot. Working those next.
I have another shoot tomorrow morning. Ought to be interesting. Might have another on Saturday, too.
All of my shoots now are TFP. Doing an awful lot of it lately.
Stay tuned for more information on my new Easy Trade program.
