Lindsay Lauckner Gundlock: Lovin’ Los Cabos
Commissioned by Endless Vacation Magazine's Photography Director Danielle Lamp to illustrate an article about the culinary scene in Los Cabos, Mexico City-based photographer Lindsay Lauckner Gundlock was thrilled to explore a region of Mexico she had never been to. Danielle asked Lindsay to photograph and shoot video for the travel article featuring some of the area's most iconic spots.
The goal was to highlight the standout cuisine, restaurants, and chefs of the Los Cabos food scene. Since this was a story for a travel magazine, we wanted to create a sense of place of the towns and beaches that comprise Los Cabos.
Planning involved working with Danielle and the article's writer, Maribeth Mellin, to narrow down the list of locations to visit and coordinate with restaurant owners to schedule a time to take the photos. Lindsay also arranged her travel plans and did a bit of research on Los Cabos to find out where the best places would be to photograph.
With many restaurants to cross off her list and so few evenings there, Lindsay knew she would have a challenge ahead of her: choosing which location she'd get the cherished "golden hour photo." Thankfully though with her thorough research and some great tips from the writer, Maribeth, who had previously visited Los Cabos, she was able to settle on a restaurant for the prized image.
El Farallon has a beautiful dining area that appears to be etched into the side of a cliff that meets the ocean. I was able to photograph it from the beach as the sun set behind it before the tide got too high.
For Lindsay, traversing this one particular region of a vast and varied country was clearly her favorite part of the whole experience. But it wasn't just the iconic picturesque views of El Arco that left her in awe. It was also the beautifully crafted dishes served up by the coastal town's culinary masters.
The written piece's tablet version also features a video, shot by Lindsay, and offers a sneak peak into the vibe of Los Cabos, which differs from the still photographs was a pleasure to create for the Mexico City-based photographer.
Although the piece was recently released, Lindsay has received positive feedback so far. She posted the video to her social media pages and received great responses.
