It’s been a busy several months over this past winter. More and more shoots popping up, each requesting some type of dramatic backdrop. So Lori and I headed out on Saturday to scope out some choice spots, shoot them and then get photos back to models and others to sift out what places worked for who. Our list included three sites, the Richmond Coal Wharves at Pier 18, the Reading Viaduct and the so called Reading Tunnel.
This was our third time to the Viaduct. Since we were here last the tracks have been removed and the ties are in piles. Most of the overgrowth has been cut back and the tree uprooted. Still this is one of the most dramatic unknown spots in Philadelphia, with fantastic views of Center City and the surrounding urban landscape. For more info on the Viaduct check out this website.
This site really appealed to us, but the model and choreographer/costume designer chose the Reading Tunnel. Which worked out just freakin’ fine, so check out our photos from the Reading Tunnel with Courtney Lepresi and Gunner Montana.
