Fisher Family – Urban Decay in Detroit
This was such an amazingly fun shoot. Not only was it my first shoot in Detroit with that amazing grunge urban decay look, but the family came with ideas of their own that made the whole experience amazing! We started out at the Historic King Solomon Church. I loved the outside, it gave us some amazing textures! There was even an old piano on the side which was PERFECT for this family full of musicians!
We also went to some nearby old buildings that had that urban decay look. It’s crazy how bad the downfall of Detroit really was. You don’t believe it until you see it. There were so many houses that were totally trashed. From a photographer’s perspective it was AWESOME and it was super grungy and cool haha, but it was also sad to see so much abandonment. We also went to an awesome graffiti overpass at the end that Sam found, and it was the last perfect cherry on top of this urban family shoot! What a bunch of talented cuties.
