Her name is Krista and we did an amazing wilderness shoot in the White Haven area of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania last summer. An outdoor shoot it was… way outdoors, as in the wilderness. We shot at three separate locations and the all involved water. The first location was a mountain river, then to a waterfall that had just a small stream falling due to the mid-summer heat and the last was back to another section of the mountainous river with a view that stretched upstream for what seemed an endless view of boulders and little pours & pools of water. The whole day for me was amazing, to be able to shoot this naturally beautiful girl in such a natural setting. Not a soul around to distract us. It was I the model and her escort who also helped with reflectors and some fill flash when needed. I love the outdoors and I have done countless outdoor model shoots but this was amazing, I felt like I was a kid again, hoping around on huge rocks trying not to fall in the water. All the while Krista was leading the way to these gorgeous locations. I want to do it again this summer.
