This is the second shoot for Amour Swimwear, and the model in this is Georgia Annable. She was the cause of me being in contact with Amour, she had been talking to them with a view to getting some swimwear for shoots. It seemed only right that I use her in one of the shoots for the brand. She travelled a fair way to be shot by me, a Swimwear Photographer UK, as she is from Derby in the Midlands.
After picking Georgia up from the station, we headed for the Witterings, which is one of my favourite beaches to shoot on. After walking for a short distance up the beach, the people had cleared and we were able to find plenty of space to shoot without unwanted people in the background of our shots.
Georgia had checked out the available styles in the car on the way to the beach, so she already knew what she wanted to wear. She was straight into the first swimsuit and were able to use some sand dunes to get a different perspective. I used a single speed light to highlight the face and reduce the shadows. It was a really bright day, so this was important to get good detail and it also adds great catchlights in the eyes.
There was a fair amount of wind on the day, so I used that to my advantage and it gave her hair an extra dimension. It also made modelling and looking through the camera a challenge as sand blowing in your eyes is not ideal.
After shooting with the first swimsuit, Georgia was straight into the next swimsuit which was her favourite of the two we used. It showed immediately that she like it as her posing increased a gear. She was even keen to get in the sea to wet her hair. We managed to shoot some amazing images in the sand.
Finally a beautiful head shot, the light was fantastic on this shoot and I was able to use it to full effect. Complete with wet hair and sand on her face, I shot this just before we left and its one of my favourite images from the day. I was also able to shoot a small amount of video during our shoot which is available below:
I am available for commissions and portfolio shoots on a full time basis. Living within an hour of two of the Finest beaches in the UK, I am ideally placed to add swimwear shots to portfolios as well as commercially shooting for brands and designers.
