The Mojave Desert | LA

03.jpeg

Still my favourite shoot in my career was the Fashion Quarterly shoot in the Mojave desert, the location was an old film set, we drove an hour and a half from LA and pulled into what reminded me of a David Lynch road movie. Our model from Los Angeles was beautiful but very difficult to manage, a short temperament and an attitude to match, we spent the day massaging her ego to avoid the almost inevitable tantrum. 

After the shoot in the 10 minutes we had while the crew packed up the gear I ran around and took these pics. For me the best thing about traveling are the cliches, the things you expect to see. The portraits in these images are of the caretaker of the location, he pulled in, as i was taking photos; toothless in his pick up truck I couldn't believe my luck!!
