I LOVED everything about this shoot! Except maybe the triple digit temperature. The minimalist quality that these images have makes me very happy! I am having a hard time choosing which images are my favorite.
This was a collaboration with Traci who is a flamenco dancer. She wanted portraits taken at White Sands and contacted me because of my experience in photographing the performing arts as well as my familiarity with the park.
White Sands might be my favorite place on the planet. I love that when you go far enough into the dunes, past all the park visitors and footprints it becomes peaceful, otherworldly and inspiring.
All the elements came together perfectly. The combination of her talent and suggestions combined with a little bit of artistic freedom on my part turned into something pretty great.
