Photography is my art as well as my business. There is nothing that makes me happier than being out there working my craft.
Some time ago, I was fortunate enough to shoot a Red Riding Hood theme shot with a really talented model from Fargo – Heather Anderson (no relation). With fantastic support from her family and a wonderful location, Sica Hollow State Park, South Dakota; I was fortunate to walk away with photographs that the artist in me could be proud of.
Trying to recapture some of that magic, I’ve started working on an Alice in Wonderland theme shoot. Been excited to meet a couple of models and we’ve done some test shoots in the fabulous Goss Opera House in Watertown, South Dakota.
Again, with a wonderful model, supportive family and a wonderful location; I can see the Alice shoot will probably result in more photos that I can be proud of.
Here is model Lauren at one of our test shoots.
It is probably unfair of me to post the second photo as it is very moody, whereas Lauren has the giant, beautiful smile that pops onto her face so automatically. Trust me, she is a gem and even if we select another Alice, we’ll want to work with her on other projects!
Unlike “Red” this is going to be a two part set. One of interior photos, to be shot at the Goss Opera House and then after the snow goes, we’ll identify a location for the exterior shots. Perhaps again to Sica Hollow, but perhaps Buffalo Ridge, perhaps Garretson, South Dakota (Devils Gulch/Palisades).
Stay tuned and see how this all turns out!
So, look for updates on this
