A Teaser of the New Place

This week has been a crazy, weird, exciting, exhausting week. I had to work AND move the apartment... I had three back to back 5am-1am days, at the end of which I was hallucinating. But, it is exciting. A new place, a new neighborhood, a new energy to set things right.
I'm sure, once we are settled, I would share what the new place looks like, but for now, let's keep it simple and mysterious :o)
See you next week!

Cate & Amir at Salton Sea

As I promised last week, there is more Salton Sea... This time, however, I had two hot models under the hot desert sun and my hot wife was there to help me as well! She snapped this picture while we were preparing the scene and the lights for the first set-up.

Amir and I have been preparing for this shoot and brainstorming the ideas for a while now... I leave all interpretations to you.

My partner in crime...

After the abondoned cabins, we went back to Bombay Beach...

Amir needed some solo shots...

After a long drive, longer shoot under the hot desert sun, on our way back to LA, we stopped at a diner and enjoyed a nice lunch...

See you next week with another adventure!

Salton Sea and More

Last Tuesday, my friend Amir and I went location scouting around Salton Sea and we had a great trip.  The following pictures document that day.

We mainly stayed in and around Bombay Beach to start things rolling...

Salton Sea is a really weird place. When you are driving to it and by it, when you are far away from the "beach" but close enough to see it, The water is a pristine blue. The little communities around it are semi-abandoned, which kind of gives a way what awaits for you by the shore. The environmental problems (both natural and man-made) caused the salt level to go all the way up to 4% and an algal bloom, which in turn increased the bacteria level. These two factors are deadly for most fish species and that's what you see all over the beaches of the Salton Sea.

The "death" is not only affecting the fish species...

The eerie silence all around Bombay Beach (save it for a very loud black-necked stilt that followed us for a while), the smell, the smoldering heat made us wondered how the few people were still choosing to live in this half-deserted desert town by the "sea".

Of course, life was obviously present in the forms of tons of birds (Salton Sea is famous for bird watching), those few people I was talking about and these fire ants.

After the Bombay Beach, we continued our scouting journey and we ended up 20mn from the US-Mexico border at the Salvation Mountain, created by Leonard Knight.

We also took this opportunity to photograph the beautiful wife of Amir :o)

Next week may be all about Salton Sea as well, this time, with models. Stay tuned.
