When someone next says to me ‘Do you want to do a water shoot?’ my response will be ‘I’m in, when? Where? Lets go!!’
The reason for that – Two amazing ladies Carrie & Anni.
Anni asked me a few weeks ago if I would be interested in doing a shoot with her as she had a few ideas in mind. I was so excited to be able to work with Anni ( Erenora SPFX & Makeup Artistry ) that I would have said yes to anything she put forward. What was sent through was concept ideas for a water shoot. I was blown away… I had seen photos like these and really wanted to try it out for myself (the floating serene flowing imagery was gorgeous).
The next thing on the list was a willing candidate to get into the water and Anni had the perfect lady in mind, Carrie (Model ). These two have worked on some amazing photos before so I was almost jumping out of my seat to get going.
Photographer CHECK! Makeup Artist CHECK! Model CHECK!….. Next was a location. We had a few in mind but after some googling we settled on Samford Valley. The little rock pools were perfect for what we wanted.
I did feel sorry for Carrie on the day, as it was perfect for shooting, cool and a little overcast, but there was a chill to the air and the water was CHILLY! I had a hard time getting my feet into the water and this lady was fully submerged at some times. She was an absolute trooper. The biggest thing going through my mind was ‘Don’t fall in the water!’ I was climbing rocks, getting knee deep in water with slippery rocks underneath and leaning up and out from the waters edge to get the right angle for the photo.
I had such fun on this shoot… I can’t wait for the next one, maybe a waterfall next time 🙂
