Welcome to Episode 1 of Ugly Places, Beautiful Faces…. We hope to bring you many more episodes because this is seriously a blast for us.Really, the places we chose weren’t “ugly” they were just overlooked in the past as amazing locations. We chose Sonic, (The very dive in Kim orders her “1/2 and 1/2 ice tea, with slightly more sweet tea then regular and easy on the ice” daily.) We also took photos at Honey Do’s. A really neat business in town that also supplies beautiful, clean, and very photogenic porta poties. Anyway, we had a beautiful model who happens to be Kim’s little sis Kelli and her pretty little girl Caroline.
This project isn’t just about taking pretty pictures in strange places, but really thinking about finding beauty where you are at. Often as photographers we have thoughts like… “If only I lived in Colorado and had the amazing mountains as a backdrop, or I wish I had a beautiful red wall like that other photographer has in their home town.”….. You can find beauty anywhere… I bet you $100. (p.s. I may have to go back to the porta potties… those photographed really well!)
Are we going to take clients to Sonic and to the porta potties now? Well… probably not those exact locations, BUT, we might take you somewhere that doesn’t appear to be amazing, and now you know you can totally trust us.
