This shoot was my first documentation of the work by architect Santiago Calatrava. He seems to transcend all others and is to date my favorite designer. His designs are purely art and I felt prevlidged when I discovered his first brigde in the U.S. was in my home state. At that point, I immediately took flight to Redding, CA to interpret the project through my own vision. Apparently my vision that day was calling for me to go chin deep in the freezing Sacramento river to get this shot. Just above the chilly water laid my camera, my new carbon fibre tripod five feet deep submerged. I dealt with the misquote bites quite well, waiting in the chilly water for the right light was beyond refreshing, but when the shots came out as I had planned, it was all worth it.
