Death Valley Spirit Portraits

My photographer friend Andi Sakowski was my roommate in college, and we went on a camping trip together in Death Valley. Despite strong winds, cold nights, and zero reception, we had a great trip and I got to make some photo dreams come true.

Inspired by fashion desert shoots and ethereal forms, I invested a whole $30 at Joann's into some sheer black fabric.


As a pair of Star Wars nerds, we thought that this shoot on the salt flats weren't too unlike the mineral planet of Crait in Episode VII, and that only made the experience better.


If you have an idea for a fashion-inspired Halloween, macabre, or spooky photoshoot, I want to hear about it! Let's shoot ideas back and forth and see what sticks!
