I spent the last week in Florida, photographing alligators and models. Never together, mind you. Which is a disappointment.
Nonetheless, it was an interesting time. I love lifestyle photography! The light on the beach was fantastic. And the resulting photographs have a wonderful glow.
Working with a model that can handle strange weather patterns, flying sand, high winds, and a bit of a chill, and still keep her cool and look great, sure makes my job a lot easier. Shannon did a great job on all fronts, and we're all pleased with the results.
One other interesting note: Neither Shannon nor I are based in Florida; we converged from very different places for this shoot. She's from frigid Toronto, Canada, while my photography business is based in Portland, Oregon. So we made a neat little triangle, coming from 2 different countries, to merge for a job in sunny Florida.
