Desert Shoot

What is your perfect shoot? How many times have you visualized the ultimate shoot from concept and design, to hair, makeup and wardrobe? Now imagine conceptualizing a photoshoot from idea to production while having the creative talents of Mark T. Biada designing amazing gowns, Tia doing amazing things with the model’s hair and makeup, and then add in the artistic genius of Ryan and Tanja. Are you drooling yet?

But not everything will always go according to plan. Frigid weather, tumbleweeds, crucifixes, and bone-dry environment. That’s todays shoot. And although the weather conditions were less than desirable, it’s often in the darkest of times that we find light. This week  RyanTanja , Tia and Mark take the beautiful Heather Floyd far from civilization and create a highly emotional shoot that is both powerful and gorgeous. The group got a bit more than they bargained for, and the pain and tears were real. Watch how this week’s episode unravels and takes the emotions to the next level.

  1. Great post. I was checking continuously this weblog and
    I am impressed! Very useful information particularly the remaining
    phase 🙂 I maintain such info a lot. I was seeking this certain info
    for a long time. Thanks and best of luck.

  2. Similarly, the green regions of the city can also be heart loving and fascinate
    the tourists a great deal. India is mystic land and it has so
    many things that make just about the most popular travel destinations
    among tourist from all of over the world. This land over the age of the traditions
    from the Hindus can also be very famous for the evening ‘aarti’ with the riverside
    along with the numerous ghats who have distinct tales with their own.

  3. Awesome, loved this episode, especially because I am from Boise. Tanja, what metering did you use in this shoot if you don’t mind me asking?

  4. Love Love Loved this Episode! And not because We worked so hard to make it happen! T and T were amazing to learn from and I took away so much from working so closely with them! Huge props to Heather she worked this shoot!

  5. Each show gets better and better. The three of you together are a wonderful asset. Love how you share your insights, feelings and fears along with the tech and creative……… Thank you for doing these shows!

  6. I have never seen so many amazing images produced in just one shoot! The talent brought together for this was fantabulous! I so wish I had one of those smart TV’s to watch it on a big screen instead of my 22″ monitor. It was insane to pick a favorite shot, but I would have to say it was the one of her standing sideways holding both sides of the dress up in the air and the rest of the dress was blowing in front of her. Perfection in my eyes! Congrats to all involved!

  7. Frickin Magnificent. What a great show profiling how a conceptual shoot comes together. Huge kudos to Heather the model, Mark the designer, Tia’s styling, the videography, and the highly charged photography of Tanja and Ryan. Just watching the show made me feel the angst emoted in the images. Well done.
