I was very pleased to shoot this family again in Las Vegas. We had to time it around my Masterclass at the big WPPI convention but were fortunate to find a great time later in the evening.
I found a great location in the Center of the City – just a block from the end of a McCarran International airport runway. We found a great feature wall perfect for a portrait.
For this private family session in Las Vegas, we chose a beautiful protected canyon well outside of the busy city. The soft Winter grasses and painted canyons provided soft sweet light in the late afternoon for our session. And I couldn’t ask for a nicer group – friendly and eager to explore the location.
We were fortunate to work with a great sponsor for the Las Vegas Workshop – canvas gurus Pixel2Canvas. They put us in contact with a great model, Kayluh, for our shoot in the outskirts of town. Anytime I can photograph a beautiful model at a location with an abandoned mining operation, ghost town, and plane crash, I know I’m going to be a happy photographer. Of course, I love vintage and really enjoyed that aspect of concept shooting the most.
I will be presenting a Masterclass in Lighting with my commercial business partner Melody Hood at WPPI in Las Vegas, February, 2012. The class is nearly half filled after one week – I recommend booking early before it fills up completely. Proudly sponsored by Pixel 2 Canvas.
Edited: A big thank you! I was just notified by the WPPI organizers that ours was the first Masterclass to sell out. Unfortunately, there is not a waiting list.
