Every year we see the same old senior photos again and again with each year passing a new wave of train tracks, and in my case, corn fields. Though each year finding just a sample of photos that truly stand out and push the limits of where we can take the genre becomes even more difficult. Thanks to Brendan Batchelor Photography, we have what could be the very first session taken at local Missouri Taco Bell.
I'm guilty myself when starting out scouting/shooting locations locally that ooze stereotypes in the Indiana area but in recent years I am always finding new and interesting ways to push my work in the most unusual of places. If Batchelor has taught us anything it's that there should be no locations left unseen, even if it's as obvious as a local fast food joint.
I know Brittany through a mutual friend of mine and she came to me with the idea of starting her senior photoshoot at Taco Bell and I was totally on board because it sounded fun and different. —Brendan Batchelor
This is an incredibly fun story, and to add to the viral status even Taco Bell tweeted about it! What is the craziest place you have ever shot a portrait session? Would you ever shoot a senior session in a fast food joint?
