Yesterday, I started to tell you all about the adventure of our road trip from WPPI to the Red Rock Canyon. If you missed it, you can read about it here! It was really pretty! From the Red Rock Canyon, we went straight for the Mojave Dessert.
The word mojave means beside the water which is extremely interesting to me. This dessert gets about 13 inches of rain a year. It’s kind of crazy when all you see is cacti, Joshua Trees, and dirt for miles. Once we reached our post, Cassi, Mikkel, Justine, Chelsea and I all got out of the BMW and played with our cameras. Can you blame us? That beautiful, California, golden hour is just too lovely not to wander around and bask in.You can tell we hit the Mojave Dessert just as the sun was setting. My images get darker and darker until the moon hung high in the sky.
This was by far my FAVORITE spot we explored next to the killer Mexican restaurant we came upon on the way out of the dessert and towards Santa Barbara. The dessert is so desolate and lonely. It’s extremely beautiful in it’s solace.
I would like to introduce you to my awesome road trip mates. Starting off the line up, I’d like you to meet Chelsea. She’s from Michigan and I believe her and I both have been bit my the travel bug.
Cassi is an amazing photographer from New Jersey. She was the brave soul who drove us the entire way! (Without her, I never would have went to WPPI. I’m so grateful for friends in the industry who push me to do things out of my comfort zone! Thanks Cassi!!!)
This is Justine and she’s a film photographer from Canada! She’s a firecracker! A shaker! and a mover! She makes me laugh a lot and I’m really glad I had the opportunity of being crammed next to her in the back seat of the BMW for some of trip. 😉
This rad lady is Mikkel. She has the coolest hair EVVVERRR! She is also one of the kindest people I got to know while in Vegas and California. On more then one occasion, she saved the day. She is a wonderful photographer in NC but still does a ton of work in NYC.
Stay tuned for the next stop in the adventure — YEAH FIELD TRIP!!! PT. 3
