I will be visiting family in the Phoenix/Glendale area on the last weekend of September. I will have one afternoon free and I would like to do a dessert shoot, late afternoon-sunset-to just as the stars are coming out. I will only be free for that one day (Sept. 28) so you have to be as well. The dates are pretty much non-negotiable as family takes precedence.
I am unfamiliar with the area so you might have to do the scouting. However, what I was looking for was open dessert with some interesting features; an oasis, mountain, rock cropping, saguaro cactus, etc. NOT BARREN. Also, as I will be with family, I was not planning on renting a car. We'll need a ride, but I am perfectly fine paying all gas/tolls for the shoot.
I am not hung up on wardrobe, as I am more interested in capturing the dessert mood. We can discuss what you would like to wear; I'm open to suggestions. (I checked "No" in the nudity, but I really don't care either way. Nudity doesn't bother me.)
