Early Morning Photo Shoots

A few months ago I had an early morning photo shoot for Atlas Trail Series. An on location shoot with K a trail runner and myself. Early morning photo shoots are always incredible because of the soft morning light, rich colors, and the cool temperature. I remind myself of these elements that make for amazing photographs when my alarm goes off long before sunrise. I’m not a morning person. I love sleeping in all curled up in my bed. To make waking up and leaving for an early morning photo shoot easier, I layout my clothes and have all my gear ready and waiting for me by the front door.

As we climbed and made our way around the hills I was loving that the fog hadn’t cleared and I tried to get as many shots. I loved how the fog and early morning light gave some of the photos a dreamy effect.

Hiking at different times and approaching a shot at different angles gave me perspectives that I could never dream of. It was a morning that I wished lasted longer to get a few more shots for Atlas Trail Series and my shop. This early morning photo shoot is a perfect reminder on why hitting the trails in the early morning is always ideal. And when it’s all done go home and nap!

    1. Beautiful pictures and narrative…have you considered a job with National Geographic! Talking pictures and traveling around the world seems like an awesome job to me! Last year I went to an exhibit of the top 100 photographs from National Geographis..what an awesome show! Would love to go one year and see a Maureen Bates original!
