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).

A really quick update today: finished this little video yesterday, but I got caught up in other stuff. I did a quick photo tour of the Agua Caliente Park in Tucson, AZ a few days ago.
This park is one of the very first parks I was able to explore when I began shooting this type of photography not long ago.
It has seen its share of trouble over time. For a while, the water that clearly defines this park had gone away. The water table had dropped too far in too short a time, causing the dual cool and hot springs to leave the park dry after more than a century. The county is pumping water back into the location, but the original springs are all but dried up. Very sad because I know the county won’t dump cash into anything for very long.
So, let’s shoot this before it’s gone! I love shooting fantasy, sci-fi, horror and just plain portraits here. Got an idea? I’ll help with it!
Enjoy this short video showcasing Agua Caliente Park.
