I am really not the one to turn down a opportunity to shoot and amazing model twice in a week so when I got the thumbs up from Chloe's agent that I could work with her again. I jumped at the chance ......having pulled swimwear from TJ Swim all I had to do was find a beautiful setting to do this editorial. After much thought it wasn't hard to go back to the Royal National Park again to do this shoot. But on this occasion we moved beaches from just around the corner from Bundeena to "Bonnie Vale Beach" As you can see in the pic's, the place is amazing and very easy on the eye. Not to mention a outstanding location for a swim shoot. My inspiration for this shoot was not only Chloe but the location it's self. So mixing the two together you get the editorial below " Close to Paradise"
Our breath taking location.
Close to Paradise
Location hunting in Sydney for a beach shoot can sometimes be taxing to say the least. So when I decided to shoot down in the Royal National Park, I had the choice of two beaches to chose from. The first one is Maianbar, which by the way will be the location for my next editorial in a couple of weeks, which you can check out on LaMode.
So that left me Bundeena, which is a small beach locked away in the corner of the national park. It is a location that is close to my heart because it is the spot that I used to shoot the first story in my book "Surface to Soul" (Please check it out via the link on this page) And not to mention one of the pic's from that shoot made the cover.
With it's golden sand and breath taking ocean setting how could I resist not shooting on Bundeena beach again. Especially after shooting up on the Northern beaches so many times. I thought it was time for a change.
So that leads me on to the amazing model I was able to book for this shoot Chloe Vialaret who resides from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. She has not shot swimwear before. But you wouldn't of thought that as we effortlessly moved from one shot to the other. We did eight in total but as you will see there were so many amazing shots I had to fill this editorial with a lot more than that. I even found time on my trip back to take a snap of this dam. Everything about the Royal National Park in Sydney will "Leave you Speechless"
