If any of you follow me on Instagram or any of my other social media accounts, you probably have seen my images of Annie Salottolo. All of the photos that I have posted of here were at the Camp and Lab in Costa Mesa, CA. This shoot just started by me seeing her awesome work all over different photographers Instagram pages. So I sent her a message to set up a shoot!
The shoot that we planned did not take too much work to set up, we decided on a day pretty easily and I knew that I wanted to shoot at the Lab and Camp in Costa Mesa. The Lab and Camp are called “anti-malls” which basically mean they are very trendy shopping centers with cool industrial looking designs mixed with plants and other artsy things.
The day of the shoot came and we met over at the Camp, there we started shooting at all of the spots that I already knew of around the area. For example we shot at the green barrels by the entrance of the shopping center and the pink wall tucked in the back by the parking lot. After we hit all of those spots we wondered around the Camp and shot with anything interesting, which is most of the shopping center.
After shooting and wondering around the Camp, we J walked across the street the to The Lab which is essentially the same type of place but different stores and slightly different looking. At The Lab we shot in a couple different locations but there were not as many great shooting locations. So we ended up just walking back across the street to our cars and I headed home.
That shoot with Annie might have been one of the shortest shoots that I have done do to the location not being as good as I hoped. But no worries! I still ended getting some interesting images with lots of color!
