There is something about the Bombay Beach and Salton Sea area (Salvation Mountain and East Jesus) that is very appealing. Coming from Nevada, which is the land of abandoned towns and quirky places, I felt right at home visiting these areas.
Between August 2020 and August 2021, I visited the area four times. The first time I visited the area, it was a quick and last-minute visit. The second time was with a group of photographers and models, which I enjoyed. I would like to have more shoots with models in the future, but it’s tough getting them to drive out!
Attempts to shoot with models failed during my third and fourth visits, so I mostly shot landscapes, astrophotography, and content for my YouTube page. During my fourth visit, I rented an AirBNB and stayed for two nights.
