A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to shoot my friends, Michelle Stauffer and Lindsay Upson in the yurts where they were living in Novato. SF editorial portrait photographer
Michelle Stauffer has been a producer for the 70 Degrees West and writer for the Huffington Post. The 70 Degrees Project is especially intriguing. She teamed up with photographer, Justin Lewis, to create “multimedia documentary project that will follow this line to illustrate the impact our modern world has on eight unique regions and the people who depend upon the stability of the fragile environments.”
Lindsay Upson is a freelance photographer and stylist living in the bay area that specializes in portraits, children, and travel. In 2013, her work was published in PDN’s March issue for the World in Focus Photography Contest.
What are Yurts? Good question. A Yurt is a portable, round tent traditionally from Central Asia. This is a great option for living off the grid.
Thanks @fboulaire for helping out!
