Backyard Bikini Shoot with Sofie K

This is the second time I’ve gotten to work with model Sofie Kranstz. She is actually a photographer who has gotten into modeling only recently. 

I’ve been quite happy to work with her. She is friendly, easygoing and has a much better handle on modeling than she knows.

This set was taken in my back yard. The set has a number of normally unwanted features around a pool like weeds and other bits.

I decided to use this as a design element instead. Continue reading “Backyard Bikini Shoot with Sofie K”

Photo Shoot at a Scottsdale Home (June, 2018)

This was such an amazing shoot! We had so much raw talent and passion for images. I can’t thank everyone enough.

The shoot was originally a no-go for me as I was slated to be out of town with my wife. Well it was going to be easier to have me remain home due to space constraints (only room for 3 and I was 4).

Once I found I could do it, I dove in. Arranged by Sarah Slaykitty for a private home in Scottsdale (Phoenix area).

SASCO Mine Shoot 2 (June 22, 2018)

SASCO Mine - Smelter Graffiti
SASCO Mine – Smelter Graffiti

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).

Photo Scouting: Agua Caliente (14 June, 2018)

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.
