A week in Santa Fe with Peter Yang

I had the enormous privilege of studying under Peter Yang for a week in Santa Fe. It's hard to put into words how much I learned… so I'll do it in pictures.

One big takeaway for me: When you're an editorial photographer shooting on location, you have to be able to enter a situation and build a set out of anything. You have to do it quick, and it doesn't always have to make sense. You have to feel it and seize it. Like… when I grabbed a mop bucket from a closet and asked the model to sit in it.
