My last couple of posts have been about shooting for pleasure. So is this one, but it is something a bit different.
I got a call in February from my good friend and accomplished Lifestyle Photographer Randy Lincks. Randy has done quite a bit of work for sailboat charter companies in the past, and every year or two he makes a trip to an exotic place to shoot some Sailing Promotion photography.
Either after years of bugging him to take ma along, or out of a genuine need for a bit of a hand based on the size of the project I was invited along to do some shooting, image management, and some general helping out.
Hooray! Off to the BVI!
We spend 5 1/2 days shooting all around the British Virgin Islands, and the schedule was pretty intense. We had a crew of 16, some professional models from Florida and England to represent the clients demographics, and a flotilla of 7 38-56 foot luxury yachts. The shot list was long and varied.
Although it’s hard to complain, we worked A LOT. Up early, and going pretty much non-stop all day. But given the subjects, the location and the weather, no matter how hard we were working we couldn’t help but have a good time. I am very fortunate that I have associates like Randy, and that I get the opportunity to work for incredible clients, and even occasionally in exotic locations. I am even luckier that throughout the busy schedule we still found time for an occasional dip in the ocean, and a cool rum cocktail after the daily wrap. I count my blessings!
Here is some of the work from the project. Some images are mine, others are Randy’s. When we work together we make a pretty good team.
