| Photo by: Mitchell Issel || Model: Paris Gerrard (moi) |
What a fun surprise. This afternoon, I got an unexpected email from photographer, Mitchell Issel. He sent me a few gorgeous photos from a shoot we did at the Great Salt Lake. As a model, it is always a joy to see the final photos, and I think these shots are spectacular. The Great Salt lake has a very magical atmosphere. Along the salty shoreline, the water sparkles, radiating light and energy up onto the sapphire Uintah mountains. It often feels almost surreal, and I think these photos capture, perfectly, that fantastically unreal essence.
Utah is filled with an amazing array of talented artists and creative souls. Mitchel Issel is definitely a hidden gem. He is passionate and perfectionistic, and it shines through in his work. I think that photographers like Issel, who shoot with film are an increasingly a rare breed. I dig it. I intend on doing a short blog interview on him very soon. Check back soon to see more . . .
