Many years ago an ad agency in NYC I worked with told me they had advised one of their clients to use me over the NYC photographer they had been using. While I was waiting for the “because your work is so much better” stroke to my ego, the reason that was forthcoming was because I was located in Colorado. They told the client that by working with me he could break away from the NYC or Beach backdrops that dominated the advertising his competitors were doing and provide breathtaking backdrops for the shoots that communicated things everyone would want to do and experience.
That’s true. We have the most beautiful mountains, streams, canyons, vistas to be found in the United States. We also have sand dunes, rolling plains, and gritty (or modern) urban locations. All of that along with the 5th highest concentration of creatives in the nation, and all of the support facilities needed for anything from a small production to a major motion picture. Although I do have clients fly in from all over the US to work with me here, it does seem that Colorado as a premier creative hub and location has remained a well kept secret.
Here are some photos from a fashion shoot I did in March 2015. The location is about 20 minutes from Denver and the model in this shoot is Cody Woldt.
