Vintage Car in Joshua Tree

The Storyteller

Are you a fan of vintage cars, the great outdoors, and female empowerment? Then you’re going to love this female adventure vintage car photoshoot in Joshua Tree, California.

Joshua Tree National Park is a stunning location that features unique rock formations, desert landscapes, and stunning sunsets. It’s no wonder that it’s a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts and photographers alike. Respecting the environment and surrounding landscapes, we wanted to showcase the beauty of Joshua Tree and combine it with the elegance and nostalgia of a classic 70’s vintage car. After scouting for the perfect spot, we decided on a location coupled with a beautiful vintage car from Palm Springs Classic Cars to compliment our models.

The Creative Brief

Our crew consisted of all female creatives each with their own creative style and point of view. This was my first workshop photography retreat as a group of Seattle photographers. My vision for this photoshoot was to showcase the strength and beauty of women while also highlighting my love of vintage cars.

Our models wore outfits that perfectly matched the aesthetic of the car. We wanted to create a classic, timeless look that would stand the test of time, but also accurately reference a nod to pulp fiction novels.

Time of Day

We planned this photoshoot to begin just before golden hour to honor the beauty of the desert sunset. After storyboarding the photoshoot the night before, I guided the models through a variety of movement and poses with the car against the stunning backdrop of Joshua Tree.

As the evening went on, we captured the changing light and shadows as the sun moved across the sky. I wanted to showcase the sense of adventure and freedom that comes with exploring the great outdoors.

This female adventure photoshoot in Joshua Tree was an incredible experience that brought together the beauty of nature, vintage cars, and female empowerment. I hope that these photos inspire others to embrace their sense of adventure and explore the beauty of the world around them.
