There’s a location on the southern edge of Phoenix, up next to South Mountain called Scorpion Gulch. I had been wanting to shoot there for some time as it’s old, rustic location lended itself to creating interesting and fun images, so when this session was scheduled there with a mounted shooter, I was all in.
How fun to get to the rare opportunity to photograph a mounted shooter like Paige and her darling Roxie. The early morning start time can always be a little rough, but that morning desert glow perfectly cuddled Paige and Roxie. Luckily we didn’t see any scorpions but we were graced with 4 coyotes exploring the wash near us. After photographing around the structure, we made our way into the wash for some fun action shots.
