This on location fashion advertising photograph was shot in Milan, Italy on an abandoned farm that is an amazing location. Samara is a spectacular model that has the ability to "project", a quality a lot models do not have. One advantage a great location has is the ability to change the look and feel on the finished image. This is why I take so much time to get in the car/van and go "Look." I shoot at this location often and has seen it change over the last 10 years. The vegetation is taking over and some of the buildings have collapsed. The way we found it was my needing to rent another car for the next day's production. While driving to Linate airport, Emiliano (my lead assistant in Europe) said "There is an old roof over there while pointing. He knows I love old texture in the background of my images. Temporarily forgetting all about picking up the car, I navigated toward the roof. After a misstep, we found it. We got out and within a minute it was apparent it was no longer a working farm. We walked around for about 10 minutes and walked back to the car, parked in front of the locked gate. There was an elder gentleman there and asked us what were doing. We replied that we were photographers and we like the farm as a location. He told us that a family member visits the farm every day around 5pm so she can feed the pigeons and the cats. (I told Emoliano if she did not feed the cats, there would not be any pigeons.) We thanked him and picked up the rental car. 3 days later, after our project, we drove back to the farm and the woman Elena, was there. She said we were welcome to visit the farm whenever we wanted to. In a few more years the farm will all be gone, either through decay or being bulldozed to make room for a warehouse or apartments, kind of sad really. It has been laying fallow for several years, slowly deteriorating and now a lot of items, most notably to me are the hand made hand hammered steel frames for the barn windows seems to have been stolen. My guess is they wound up in an antique shop or in someone's home for decoration, they were in fact very cool and I miss them.

About the Image

This on location fashion advertising photograph was shot in Milan, Italy on an abandoned farm that is an amazing location. One advantage a great location has is the ability to change the look and feel on the finished image. This is why I take so much time to get in the car/van and go "Look." Samara is a spectacular model that has the ability to "project", a quality a lot of models do not have.

I shoot at this location often and has seen it change over the last 10 years. The vegetation is taking over and some of the buildings have collapsed.

The way we found it was my needing to rent another car for the next day's production. While driving to Linate airport, Emiliano (my lead assistant in Europe) said "There is an old roof over there while pointing. He knows I love old texture in the background of my images. Temporarily forgetting all about picking up the car, I navigated toward the roof. After a misstep, we found it.
