My wife, Vicki, and I are full-time portrait and wedding photographers. When we aren’t shooting these things, some of our favorite concepts are creating dramatic images of people in fantastic surroundings. After years of doing this kind of work I now find it difficult to photograph landscapes without placing a human subject into the image. Some of our work of this type has been featured by DIY Photography before.
We work with a lot of models and one of our all-time favorites is Sarah Maillet. When we heard she was going to Iceland for a visit I knew we would have to go as well. Sarah arranged for some gowns from some local stateside designers and we brought along some of ours, including a fabulous purple parachute dress from Alice Andrews Designs. Along with Ryan McCabe, who provided invaluable support to the project, we set out on a two week photo excursion to some of Iceland’s most scenic locations.
