Geisha Model Shoot in Santa Fe for Elaborate Collaborate

Today we did a phot shoot in Santa Fe

Geisha (芸者?), Geiko (芸子) or Geigi (芸妓) are traditional, female Japanese entertainers whose skills include performing various Japanese arts such as classical music and dance.Geisha (pronounced /ˈɡeɪʃə/), like all Japanese nouns, has no distinct singular or plural variants. The word consists of two kanji, 芸 (gei) meaning "art" and 者 (sha) meaning "person" or "doer". The most literal translation of geisha into English would be "artist" or "performing artist". Another name for geisha used in Japan is geiko, which is usually used to refer to geisha from Western Japan, including Kyoto.

Apprentice geisha are called maiko (舞子 or 舞妓), literally "dance child") or hangyoku (半玉), "half-jewel" (meaning that they are paid half the wage of a full geisha),[1] or by the more generic term o-shaku (御酌), literally "one who pours (alcohol)". The white make-up and elaborate kimono and hair of a maiko is the popular image held of geisha.

Today Kevin and I collaborated on a photo shoot with Albuquerque base models Ariel Foster and Jeremy Jacobs at Hagan ghost town.

This is Ariel, she is a make up artist and a model. This was the first time shooting with her.

The place had a lot of good locations to shoot.

There were a few dwelling, we were limited in time, but managed to get most of them before it got dark.

A place we need to visit again.

Today Kevin, Julie and I decided to enter the dwelling of the children of Pajarito Mesa hidden in the desolate desert of the Rio Puerco basin.

Enter if you dare!

What we saw there, was all captured with our cameras, basking in decay and frozen in time for us to peek into a living nightmare.

Moving up toward the dwelling, but every step is at your own risk.

Waiting in time for the last ride to the other side of the world where the children seek to awake from the dust of age.

Will you ride with me for the last time?
