matthew: senior photo shoot.
matthew is a simple guy. one who is easy going and relaxed. yet all the while adventurous and out-going. he grew up exploring the mountains and playing among them. while fishing, hiking, backpacking and hunting, he found himself at home surround by snow-capped peaks and shimmering alpine lakes. this still remains true today.
he is matthew. and this is his senior photo shoot.
given his passion for the mountains, it was fitting that matthew’s shoot would be in the eastern sierra. as it most often is, the mountain weather proved to be unpredictable and, well, blistery and chilly. so first we ventured up to convict lake for some shots backdropped with mountains and then headed south to the buttermilks for some high-desert boulder field shots. here’s what we came up with during our wanderings…
i love me some road shots.
we braved the freezy cold winds for these shots, but i think it was well worth it.
i made him stand on a 6×6 inch post in gail force winds for quite some time to get the shot on the right. now that’s commitment.
next, we headed south toward bishop. i hadn’t been to the buttermilks since i was a kid. so it was fun to explore the boulder field. and it was a photographer playground to be sure.
matthew was up for anything. even lying down in a rock-lined gutter. awesome.
