  It was never a question of if we were going to Oregon to view the eclipse, but how we were going to get there.

Cotopaxi

Eclipse, Aug 2017

Driving from Los Angeles to Oregon in our trusty Humble Plum bus, we captured the celebration of the celestial event through a lifestyle shoot for Cotopaxi. In addition to photography, we delivered a blog post and full Instagram takeover during the trip.

 Five friends together to witness this rare celestial event. None of us really knew what to expect other than the moon would completely block out the sun.

 The course was set for the Global Eclipse Gathering, a 70,000 person event mixing art, music and a community excited to share an out-of-this-world experience.

 Of the many photos you may have seen of the eclipse in totality, the sky appears entirely void of color or light. Rather, a 360 degree view of a beautiful sunrise/sunset captures the peripherals; a dancy dot in the sky surrounded by a beautiful indigo backdrop.
