Here are some samplings of places to have your pictures taken in Maricopa. Each location is versatile and different times of day as well as different seasons will produce different results.
Ak-Chin Southern Dunes- Golf Course
There are trees, grass and a great view of the sky. There is also a building with stone work and arches. This is a public area and we do need to work around people.
Hidden Valley Desert North
Beautiful desert landscape with view of mountain and sky, no saguaros in this area. Drive up and park on paved roads but actual photography is done on the dirt road and desert area next to the road. Lushwith green bushes and flowers in the spring.
Summer and fall show yellow and brown hues with a little bit of green.
West Pinal County Park–
Desert landscape with mountains and saguaros. This location is south of Maricopa. There is no fee for use of the park and sometimes there are porta potties at the vicinity. (I only have personal images from here so far)
Hall Farms Pecan Grove
Beautiful setting in Maricopa’s farmland. Summer and fall are the best times to use this area. This is seasonal and we also have to work around the watering system of the farm. A second location should be chosen as a plan B in the event that the grove is being watered.
We can turn most places into a great photograph. There are many parks, fountains, and structures that are a part of the community. Here is a sampling of places that have been requested by clients or visited on a whim in the past. Keep in mind the seasonal differences of any location.
