Neon Boneyard Photo Shoot, Las Vegas, Part 1

One of the funniest things I took part in while in Vegas for WPPI was a photo shoot at the Neon Boneyard. In case you don’t know, the boneyard is the place where all of the neon signs from Vegas go to retire. It’s little more than two dirt fields, but oh what glorious dirt fields they are! The lots are full of neon signs and it really is a site to behold.

Here are a few images from that shoot. All of the females in these shots are models and the two boys are their respective boyfriends/fianc├ęs, which was fun! I have several more to post, but wanted to give a little sneak peek. Enjoy!
