Seven Magic Mountains created by Ugo Rondinone.   Twenty minutes outside of Las Vegas this large scale piece of art work is one of a kind.  Created May 11, 2016 this will be the last year you'll be able to see it.  I wonder what they'll do with the large boulders?  Just knock them down?  Why wouldn't they just leave it up?

I struggled to photograph this piece of art.  Not as much as I struggled with why.  I understand that art is supposed to mean something different to everyone.  I guess I just didn't get it.  That's probably why I struggled so much to photograph it.

I think it's more about the placement of the mountains.  Depending on the angle you can see each mountain or clump them all together to make one large grouping. 20170128-Las-Vegas-and-Red-Canyon-20170128-Las-Vegas-and-Red-Canyon-

I think for me it's the vastness of the dessert.  Watching his video he wanted people to look at it's surroundings, not just at the art.  The art is nothing without the dessert.

Located in West Tamarac, my studio can accommodate small families for group and individual portraits.  If you prefer the park or beach, I have several locations I can recommend based on what kind of scenery you like.

Be sure to check the weather before booking an outdoor photo session.  Depending on the forecast we may have to reschedule your shoot due to weather.
