Hey you guys!
So… this was an interesting shoot you guys! I was so excited to shoot here on the pristine salt flats with the beautiful backdrop of the mountains.
The Bonneville Salt flats are one of the largest salt flats in the world- it is the largest of many salt flats located west of the Great Salt Lake, and was about a 90 minute drive out of Salt Lake City. I had a show scheduled there, so I came in a day early to do the shoot! I teamed up with the talented cameraman Markus Aedo, who shot the video, and all went well… until poor Markus’ car got stuck in the flats!
We were VERY lucky that some people stopped to help get him out… it was a little stressful! It was hard to stay stressed for too long with the beauty of our surroundings however, and we got the job done (with a bit of sweat and tears!).
The trip to Salt Lake City was amazing. It was an honour to perform in the Rice Eccles Stadium for a very inspiring corporate event, and I got to visit the famous Salt Lake Temple which was so peaceful, inspiring and beautiful. I left inspired. One recommendation I would make- do NOT drive your car onto the salt flats unless it’s car racing season (apparently August!) when the area is used for races! It’s too muddy before then!
I’ll be traveling to Europe next! Let me know if you have any ideas where we should shoot a video! I hope you’re having a wonderful summer…. or winter for my Aussie family and friends!
