Okay. This is … This is big.
This is something that I’ve been working on for a while, and I’m very excited to share it.
A few months back, I went and put a bunch of Christmas lights on a tree in the middle of nowhere, and then waited for it to snow.
And waited, and waited.
But the last week, it’s been snowing pretty much constantly so yesterday Brandon and I went up there to check it out and to do a proof of concept shoot.
We nearly didn’t make it, because there was so much snow on the road, but we managed to power our way up to where the tree was.
We hiked in after dark, and found the tree nearly buried in snow. It was everything I could have asked for and more.
There was even a fine ice fog in the air, creating a great effect for the lights. At least, some lights. Because the reason Brandon was there was to light the scene with his drone.
The ice fog, however, grounded the drone, so we had to improvise, removing the light from the drone and sending him out hiking around to light the trees from the ground.
Because I couldn’t line up a model, Brandon stood in as a test subject.
And it was beyond magical. It was not what I was planning on shooting, and it came out even better.
Here’s what the first image looked like:
Here’s the deal. You can be a part of the magic, too.
We will be offering portrait sessions at the tree all winter long. Individuals, families, engagements, kids, grads … whomever would like to participate.
We’ll be offering the sessions for a flat fee of $100. That includes travel time to and from the tree, and up to an hour’s worth of shooting, though it is outside and it is winter, and it might get a little chilly.
The tree is located about half an hour from Tumbler Ridge along a occasionally plowed backroad. To get there, you may need either a 4wd vehicle or a lift.
To book your session, email me or call 250-219-8215.
