I had the pleasure of photographing Ashley Wagner for OC Register Magazine. The magazine wanted something urban and mentioned shooting Ashley in the city eating an ice cream cone. I didn’t know Ashley lived in Southern California and wanted to play with the concept of her on water as if it was melted ice. I also wanted her to be in her skate attire so she was instantly recognizable. I pitched the idea to the magazine and they wanted to run with it. Now the hard part, where were we going to shoot? A few small lakes/parks came to mind but I knew we couldn’t ask her to stand in the usual muck that surrounds lakes. We scouted and found the perfect location with rocks for her to stand on in Irvine, CA.
