Cornwall Photographer: Cornwall Beach Holiday / Surfer Girl Portrait Photoshoot – Dasha Part I
Posted on August 17, 2012
For this post I’ve decided to share the first part of a beach themed portrait photoshoot. I met up with Dasha and her husband for a portrait session while they were on a Cornwall beach holiday. The shoot was just for Dasha, which enabled me to adjust the style to a more fashion and art influenced lifestyle photoshoot.
The rain this Summer in England has pretty much been a daily occurrence, but a few dry hours is all we really needed. We met up late afternoon and headed off to a couple of nearby beaches for the early evening light. The rain held off, and the constantly changing cloud coverage provided some interesting skies as a backdrop.
The ‘Love Machine’ surfboard featured in some of the images is an exclusive design to the ‘Down the Line’ surf shop in Hayle. Down the Line are stockists of surfboards, wetsuits and surf clothing. If you’re planning a holiday in Cornwall, you may like to pay them a visit, or if you’re not in the area you can order online. Click here to open the ‘Down the Line’ web-site in a new window/tab.
If you’re looking for lifestyle art to add life to an empty wall or two in your home, booking a portrait session for when you’re on holiday / vacation is often a convenient time to do so, and holiday locations can make for great environmental portraiture. I’m available to photograph individuals, couples and families locally in Devon and Cornwall, and also holiday destinations worldwide.
Below are a selection of images from the shoot. Feel free to leave comments at the end.
Dasha enjoyed the shoot so much, I was invited back the following week for a second shoot. I’ll be blogging the results of the second shoot shortly. Be sure to ‘Like’ my facebook page to keep up-to-date with new blog posts.
