Our most recent Senior Rep photo session took place at one of the coolest locations in El Paso; out at Hueco Tanks state park.
Just east of El Paso, Texas, this park is a rock climbers paradise. In fact for years, climbers the world over have visited and found the beauty and the challenge worth coming back to time after time. So this was just a natural location to do a shoot with Chapin High School senior Alex Davis.
My assistant Renee Iglesias and I met Alex and his mom early in the morning for the shoot out at Hueco Tanks. The skies were overcast and holding rain, which meant more flash, but cooler temps too! We had hoped to visit one of the ponds that the park is known for, but they were dry and in much need of one of those clouds holding the goods. We did scale some of the boulder like mountain tops and the natural cliff ramadas that are throughout the park.
We also got a chance to see some of the Indian art paintings that are found on many of the cave like walls, that make this place a gem for archeologists and historians. I don’t know the dating of these hieroglyphics, but park rangers say various people groups have lived there for nearly 6,000 years.
I had a great time with Alex and his mom Judy Davis. They were awesome to work with and such nice people. Judy made for a good grip as she got reflector duties from time to time. I know Alex is going to have a great senior year. He’s a great kid and already has plans to attend Texas Tech were his sister is attending. You can see more pictures of Hueco Tanks and our Session by visiting Alex’s gallery at my website. If you are looking for a great little escape, consider spending a day out at Hueco Tanks. I hope to have many more sessions out there, it’s a great place.
