|Setting up a decorated tree at the top of a mountain isn't as easy as it looks...|
One fact of which you may not be aware: we shoot ahead of season - fall in the spring, spring in the fall. The Holiday book is shot from May to June. It is always something I have to plan for, making the season seem believable. Fortunately, at high elevations (knock-on-wood) the snow remains late in the season, perfect for the festive feeling we need.
Some highlights from this year's shoot:
|Our snowcat driver brought her faithful avalanche dog every day|
Our fashionable fashion stylist and assistant
If you have to wear winter clothes in June, why not look good?
|We also shot at the historic McPolin Farm in Park City, Utah, a national landmark|
|Working on a shot at the base. The sun rises so early - and sets so late - making for very long days. Lots of water and sunscreen are mandatory.|
|Not many people can say this is their mode of transportation to and from work everyday|
|It is remarkable how the snow lingers at higher elevations...|
|We ran into this hardcore sledding enthusiast - he hiked a few thousand feet to the top in order to enjoy one ride down|
|We also shot at the beautiful Sundance Resort - Bear Claw is the cabin at the very top, with 360 degree views which never disappoint|
|A very special place, indeed|
