‘Heaven is under our feet, as well as over our heads.’ – Henry David Thoreau, Walden

I had the wonderful experience of attending a workshop hosted by Erich McVey in Bend, Oregon. Ginny Au styled four incredible shoots for us, each one representing an element; Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. The Earth element was set in a canyon against a dramatic rock face, which turned golden as the sun went down. Ginny chose soft but sultry colors, a rich mix of browns and grays with hints of pink, that were an elegant blend with the landscape around us. When shooting, she really encouraged us to think about everything that contributed to the emotion of “Earth” and what it represented. It was an incredible and inspiring learning experience and I am so thankful I had the opportunity to work with such a talented team. ”  –  Erika
