"Downtown Lights" Photo Shoot

A few weeks ago we got to photograph model Jeremiah Kallatch. He has been one of our go to models for a few years now and is always open to our random creative ideas. Before the shoot Jeremiah and I were going back-and-forth on some ideas of when and where we wanted to shoot. In the past we've done woodsy shoots, smoke bombs and sports cars. We wanted to come up with something that was a totally different look and feel. So, we drove downtown and captured some nighttime street shots. This really challenged our capability of shooting and lowlight environments. 

I have to say I'm pretty stoked with how these turned out. The combination of the soft lights and graininess is really the look I was going for. Did I mention how much I love my Nikon D750?! Low light photography is a breeze with that camera. I also used an 85 mm lens, another one of my favorites. This same day Christian just got his DJI Ronin in the mail, so of course he quickly put it together and also created a video to go along with this photo shoot. Now keep in mind video productions take a lot longer to edit, so that will be coming soon. In the meantime, check out some of our favorite shots below.

"A Field of Gold" Photo Shoot

“Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows.”

I found a photo of this golden field online and I knew I had to shoot here. So I immediately texted my good friend Brianna and said, "This field is amazing! Can you come down and shoot this week?!" We quickly brainstormed the look of the entire shoot; the hair, makeup and the outfit. It came together so perfectly! Brianna hopped in my car and I was so excited to get there, you'd think I was a kid headed to Disneyland. On the way there we drove passed a few plowed fields, we thought we missed it. Then all of a sudden we pull up to a sea of gold canola flowers. I mean the photos don't even do it justice. When we saw it we both screamed at the same time. It was an incredible sight to see.

These are the kind of photo shoots that give me life and remind me of my passion for beautiful imagery. Here are some of my favorites. By the way, thanks so much Brianna. You've truly become such a great friend of mine. Thanks for always supporting me and going along with my random and sometimes crazy ideas. <3
