The Perfect Model

Fashion Style Photo Shoot ~ Finding the Ideal Location

Fashion style photo shoot was at the top of my priority list while on my journey to WPPI (Wedding Professional Photographer International) at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas this past month.  I knew I was going to somehow do this desert fashion style photo shoot.  What I did not know was who, what or where. I first started researching great places to do the shoot out and around Las Vegas.  A place that was not too common.  A place that is unique.  A place that would be amazing.  With the help of one of my dear comrades, Randy Green, I was directed to the most ideal location.

Beauty really does show in the desert!

This place was almost like a photographer’s oasis in the desert, although it was actually a real life ghost town.  Yep, it is true!  Nelson, Nevada.  A place dating back to 1775 where the Spaniards  made the first discovery of gold in this little town they called El Dorado.

 

Fashion Style Photo Shoot ~Finding the Perfect Model

My next endeavor was to find a perfect model.  I searched and searched WPPI for two days. I scanned all the pretty models who were being photographed at the event for different vendors.  I gave a couple of them my card in case they might be interested or even have time.  I didn’t count on that as I knew they were probably pretty tired of modeling at the event for days.

Fashion Style Photo Shoot ~ Found in Fashion Mall!

After spending some time at the WPPI convention, it was time to shop.  I headed over to Fashion Show Mall.  Little did I know I would find the perfect model walking out of the restroom.  I sort of chased behind her to catch her before I lost her!  I approached her with my idea, handed her my business card and assured her I was not a weirdo.  She smiled and said she would let me know.  Her friend, however, did not have a smile at all.  I can only imagine what she was thinking.
