A little bit about my most successful lifestyle shoot.
This shoot was late September in Cornwall. I had one week, my stock income was in free fall, I’d just got a tax refund and decided to blow it on hiring two models for coastal lifestyle shoots.
Things always go wrong : ) The forecast was terrible, wind and rain. I cancelled the shoot initially, but the model wanted the shoot as she had invested time and money in preparation.
So we went ahead, we started shooting walking along the cliffs around Porthcurno, it was overcast and on/off light rain. When we got to the beach, well we got fortunate, the sun came out. Beach holiday lifestyle shots in the rain don’t work : )
The model was brilliant giving happy, carefree looks with ease. She even was happy to play in the sea, and it was freezing : )
This photo shoot turned out to be my most successful model shoot to date.
