About The Location 

Little Sahara National Recreation Area is an amazingly different location to shoot any type of shoot you have in mind.  The myriad of sand dunes go on in every direction, shape and size.  Its pretty far from any type of civilization so be sure to bring food and water with you on your visit.  Also be sure to bring sun screen and maybe even an umbrella for people with fair skin that may get burned easily.  You want to make sure you go on a sunny day. Once i went on a cloudy day and it just was not as amazing.  
The dunes can change from year to year, so I only put 3 main shoot spots and even these ones could be different if you go to this location.  Colorful props are highly recommended as there are only two colors in this location, sand dune tan and the blue sky.  
I would recommend avoiding weekend shooting here as there will be a lot of people in off road vehicles, especially in the summer time, riding the dunes.
