I was hoping for the water to be a little less choppier when I shot this striking editorial of Courtney. But you can never rely on the mother nature to deliver all your requests in one day "can we now" ?? You usually have to work with what weather conditions you get and in this case it was nice and sunny, and did I say warm as well near prefect conditions for a swim shoot. Gaining inspiration for "Take Me To The Edge" didn't come easy as this has to be my umpteeth swim shoot. Now a days I try and draw inspo from the models that I am shooting, rather than the location and or the swimwear. But I always find it fun capturing and I say capture because when you are shooting with the waves coming in and caressing the models body. It makes it for a some what fun shot to create .......don't get me wrong I love shooting at the beach and I do find it challenging to put together a editorial that is not only eye catching, but will hold you the "reader" long enough to make you want to look at it again and again. That is not easy but that is what every photographer wants to do when he or she picks up there camera and creates.
