justin | senior portrait session in downtown tucson arizona

I had a really fun afternoon shooting Justin’s senior pictures yesterday. I felt totally inspired and jazzed about this new session and we totally rocked out some awesome images. Justin likes quite a number of different bands and probably goes to a concert once or month (or so he says) which I think is totally awesome. I only went to a handful of concerts when I was in HS . . . wish I went to more.

We headed downtown and tried a number of different places, but I think we totally nailed all of them. Justin’s sweet ride, his 03′ Mustang GT actually caused quite a stir . . . we were parked on the side of a road near a railroad line, and it didn’t dawn on me that being in front of a power sub-station was a bad thing. After about 25 minutes of photographing him and his car, a security officer came flying around the corner and yelled to us that we were not aloud to be photographing here and that it was a National Security compromise! My first thought was that this was a little far fetched . . . I was on the side of a public road, atleast 20ft away from the railroad, what could it have been? Apparently TEP or someone was watching us on the power-station cameras and called it in. The security officer was a nice fellow after a little explanation that we were not trying to photography the property . . . but it was still kind of funny in all.

Enjoy the pics! Thanks again Justin, you rocked!

Nathan’s rockin pics!

Got to shoot an awesome senior today, Nathan from Benson High.  It was just a whole lot of fun and we were laughing all afternoon. These were shot in a pretty remote location in AZ along the freeway, very very cool area to shoot.  Texas Canyon to be specific (just East of Benson about 15 minutes or so).  The weather was absolutely amazing, so it was extremely pleasant outside.  Spent quite a while out there getting some really cool stuff, then we went back to his school to get a few more, worked with the stage and had some more fun.  Nathan is a big sports guy but we focused more on his wide variety of musical talents (like guitar, electric violin, electric guitar, piano, etc).  I had a blast!!!

I don’t know many photographers that go out of the way to plan Senior pics as cool as these are!  Thanks again Nathan, it was a super rockin’ afternoon!

I don’t know why but this makes me think of guitar hero or something.

I told him to do a mix of Kurt Kobane and KISS.  I think he nailed it!
