Urban 

Brick buildings, alleys, colorful graffiti, a parking garage and busy city sidewalks. Absolutely perfect for those who live for the hustle and bustle that the city has to offer. The raw elements available are exciting and the vivid color will make your images pop.

Collective

New and old buildings, trees, alleys, open spaces and everything in-between. In a nutchell, this is a location jackpot that will provide endless options. University campus and small towns are the perfect places that offer exactly this. These locations are my very favorite for their rich variety of backgrounds. If you have an eclectic style, this type of location works great!
