Summer Portrait Session at the Salton Sea in Southern California

Fun & Adventure Awaits!

It’s time to get out & explore the wild side of Southern California! The area is full of incredible places to have a Model-like Portrait Experience that Sharon Wallace photography is known for. The Salton Sea area is an incredibly rich visual area to shoot. It is constantly changing due to the biennual artists show where creatives come from all over the world to create & display their art at Bombay Beach.


Black & White or Color?

Creatively speaking the color at Bombay Beach is amazing! Converting a few images to black & white – is always a treat because of the contrast the many colors & signatures & messages the creatives leave. They really pop out of the artwork & I think juxtapose the fashion style. I love how Asha’s dress really pops in this image!

Beach Accessories!

It really wouldn’t be a true Beach Fashion Styled Shoot without a few images with a beach hat! I love how the hat makes her eyes pop as they peek out from under the brim. This area is along the old pilings from a pier at Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea in Southern California.

If you want the unexpected in your images, get out & explore!

Adventure on!



Favorite Summer Style!

This is one of my absolute favorite images from the Summer Portrait Session at the Salton Sea in Southern California. The pilings make the perfect backdrop to set off her beautiful image. I love how the back light frames her beautifully & makes her image stand out.

She is a real trooper for hanging in the shoot! I wish you had smell-a-vision! The white sand is not really sand but fish bones….Yes, this is an apocalyptic experience that permeates all of your senses. It’s hard to explain if you have never visited the Salton Sea, but, let’s just say the hotter it gets outside the more pungent the smell.


Color & Texture!

You can find any color or texture imaginable here at Bombay Beach. Just do a little searching & you can find a wall or a scene perfect for any outfit! I love how Asha’s jumper & earrings match the wall in this abandoned building. Thank you to the artist who painted it! The second image is a favorite shooting ground – ‘Bombay Beach Drive-In” Two years ago I was at the beach shooting when the artist was working on this lot. He was wielding the sign which I love!!!!
