Introducing a model with such a title leads one to believe something amazing happened. And as a last minute addition to a crazy shoot schedule, he did just that.

One part of the world has truly captured my imagination. Portugal and Western Spain, especially the Extremedura, have presented me with a plethora of stunning locations that cannot compare to anything in the US. The mind-blowing history alone is enough to peak my interest. But the staggering vistas and phenomenal architecture are just stellar!
Bruno has tremendous fortitude. After spending one day exploring a couple of schools, the next was focused on slightly more open scenes including a church and an abandoned engine plant. Luckily the temperature was slightly warmer on day two, but the wind from Canada was intensifying. Bruno persevered with the dedication of a true artist.

The 2022 photography season truly began with Portugal. It was the first time that I felt comfortable enough to attempt a foreign country by myself.

What happens when you bring a professional dancer to abandoned locations? Well, you end up with some wonderfully expressive and interactive images! I discovered Esteban through Instagram, as I have with a few other talented guys. I was immediately captivated by his skills as a modern dancer. And since modern dancers aren’t constrained by the
Continuing my enthusiasm from Portugal, I was able to schedule several new explorations of the old Rust Belt cities. My first was Detroit. It has been about 5 years since I’ve seen this city. New to this trip – help from a Canadian urbex guy who knew about more interesting areas than I ever could!
My second major expedition in Portugal was due east of Lisbon near the Spanish border – an amazing fortified city defending from Moorish and Spanish incursions. I can’t remember exactly how I discovered this location but it was a glorious step back in time. Massively thick walls provided protection for the town, while a large
