Themed Private Party

Not all parties are the same, so when it comes to celebrating with co-workers or friends, adding a little twist can elevate any party. We recently photographed a private birthday celebration in Italy, Milan that incorporated a mysterious masquerade. Photo shoots with stylization, like this one in Milan, add personality and are longer remembered for all guests.

Comic-Con Cosplayers

Comic-Con is a sight for the unique and interesting, thanks to its dedicated fan base. Fans from around the world show love for their favorite characters by dressing up in elaborate and extensive costumes (also know as cosplay). World-renowned photographers have captured many of theses die-hard fans in an artistic and fun fashion.

Our 8 Favorite Unearthly Places to Film or Photograph

Our 8 Favorite Unearthly Places to Film or Photograph

Our planet has quite a selection of unearthly landscapes you won’t believe exist. With box office hits like “The Martian” and “Gravity,” it’s clear that we haven’t lost our nostalgia for space exploration. Here are our favorite locations to shoot that seem completely out-of-this-world.

Zhangye Danxia Landform, China

Zhangye Danxia Landform, China
This geological wonder was the backdrop for the Chinese film, “A Woman, A Gun, and A Noodleshop” by filmmaker Zhang Yimou. Its multi-colored peaks, prominent boulders and steep cliffs make it a great location for the next space odyssey.

Cappadocia, Turkey

Cappadocia, Turkey
Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s film “Winter Sleep” begins with an aerial shot of Cappadocia spotlighting its wind-blown honeycombed rock formations that seem straight out of a fairytale book. Beautiful chimney-like cliffs and a labyrinth of residences give this location a galactic feel.

Slope Point, New Zealand

Slope Point, New Zealand
New Zealand, best known for “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” trilogies, has quite a supernatural landscape. Slope Point, found at the southernmost tip of the south island is home to twisted and crooked trees formed by the constant airstream that smashes into the land unforgivingly. This destination has suspense thriller written all over it!

Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland

Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland
Iceland, covered in glaciers, black rock and snow, is home to box office hits like “Batman Begins,” “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” and “Prometheus,” as well as HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and Netflix’s “Sense8.” Its landscape is perfect for the next science fiction shoot.

Antelope Canyon, Arizona United States

Antelope Canyon, Utah, U.S.A.
One of the most visited and photographed canyons in the Southwest, Antelope Canyon is characterized by its beautiful corkscrew crevices and vibrantly colored sandstone.

Mount Roraima, South America

Mount Roraima, South America
These gorgeous tabletop mountains found on the border of Venezuela, Brazil, and Guyana were the inspiration behind Pixar’s animated film “Up.”

Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park, Madagascar

Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park, Madagascar
With its massive razor-sharp vertical rocks, the Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park in Madagascar seems like the perfect filming location for movies like “The Maze Runner”. These eroded limestone rocks extend for over 230 square miles. Armageddon 2 anyone?

Derweze, Turkmenistan – “Door to Hell”

Derweze, Turkmenistan - “Door to Hell”
“Door to Hell” is a 230-foot-wide crater in the middle of the desert near Deweze, Turkmenistan. It was originally a drilling platform for Soviet scientist back in 1971, until the area collapsed. Researchers, fearing the spread of poisonous methane gas, lit it on fire. What they didn’t expect – it continues to burn 44 years later!
