Ugly Location Challenge

Any location can be turned into a photo shoot no matter how “ugly”. We decided to test this theory by doing the “Ugly Location Challenge” which has gone viral on both YouTube and Twitter. If you haven’t heard of it yet, the “Ugly Location Challenge” is exactly what it sounds like! We brought together four UCSD photographers (both experienced and inexperienced), one model, and two stylists to find unconventional photo shoot locations around San Diego and create beautiful photos from them. Although this was not a competition, we thought it would be fun to see and compare the different photography techniques and editing styles between the 4 photographers! Each photographer has chosen their favorite photo from each location listed below so pick your favorites!
