Finishing up another shoot in the Williston, North Dakota + Eastern Montana area (the Bakken) for a client – I decided to take a break this evening and edit some personal photographs from the trip. Below are 8 new additions to my ongoing On The Road project of non-traditional landscape photographs. I passed by many more fantastic scenes on this shoot – but traffic and construction in this part of the country right now make conditions too dangerous for me to work on this alone a large portion of the time.
Witnessing a crew creating a 32,000 sq ft. building in 6.5 days is the epitome of the entrepreneurship, grit and the staggering pace found in the oil boom area in North Dakota. I can’t say that I enjoyed every moment of this project (the average temp. was 22.3 degrees!) but I absolutely enjoy the wild-west feeling and spirit of the Boomtown, and love working and making pictures there.
