I’ll attempt to show off these pictures while talking about the locations.
Just stop on some plain road with a bunch of high weeds and make it happen.
I got the camera down low as you can see.
But seriously we were driving to Park City Utah and I just stopped and pulled off the highway.
For like 10 minutes is all.
Wasn’t in the original plans to shoot this spot, but when the sun hits something just right, it can supercede the previous plans.
This is right next to the cool barn that we had gone there to shoot.
So they really liked the egyptian theatre, but when I saw it, it looked really hard to photograph and a bit boring and the street was so close and people walking by.
This one definately needed to be edted to make it look a bit more moody and fit what the theatre was all about.
Take note of that crazy moose behind them
This was at the theatre… I did like the doors. But to avoid reflections and to make the scene more interesting I put them down on the ground

My assistant really liked these lights… and since she’s a girl i thought dang why not, if she likes them then the bride will too, probably.
So I took a suggestion by someone else and put my own flare on it. I didn’t necessarily try to do the shoot she had in mind when she saw the spot… I’m sure she did though.
Funny story behind this one… it started off simple but then she started to get more interested… Who can blame her… he’s one big hunk
Well yes technically a hunk of metal… but still.
In any case take their impulses and ideas and create some pictures, roll with the story line, create the story.
I think the distortion is really what makes this picture.
They are lit up separately by 2 flashes.
We were able to extend our shooting time into the twilight with some flash stuff going on.
Helps to have an assistant around to help with lighting.
We turned the car around and came back to this place and searched around for an owner to ask if we could shoot here.
So needless to say this is probably the only time I’ll have pictures here. Skies were nice and blue that day thankfully.
Looks like i’m way up in the air for that one doesn’t it?
Oh the joys of the 14-24 2.8 on a full frame camera
Doing something unique like that helps to change a seemingly normal spot into something cool.
Getting closer to the barn helps, doesn’t show off just how cool a location, but remember that these pictures are more often than not supposed to be about them. So we need lots of pictures where they fill the whole frame almost.
It was a fun idea I had, and when I shot it I thought it wasn’t going to work.
Normally i would have taken one saw that it would take too long to make it work and move along because there are always a dozen more shots to be had a block away.
But I stuck with this location and tried to make something work. I opted for farther away shots instead of when i first started I was aiming for closeups.
My PA picked the pictures for this post and apparently she liked the newspaper one after all.
So not total bust I guess.
There was a whole series on these stairs. This isn’t even my favorite.
