¡Hola! - My Spanish Adventure.

01st September 2014
I've not long been back from a fortnight in Spain. A well needed break in the sun, escaping the pretty disappointing weather here in the UK (or so I'm told). It wasn't all rest & play, I did manage to sneak a shoot into the proceedings. I'm not sure I can really call it my first international assignment, but it's not far off! I was travelling very light (photographically speaking) just a camera body and my trusted 50mm prime lens. The shoot was at a very sunny beach at Benalmadena on the Costa Del Sol, and the subject, the beautiful Alexandra.
The conditions were particularly tricky; a busy location I didn't know at all, coupled with a cloudless, blue sky with strong sun at a time of day I usually avoid in the UK. Luckily there was a picturesque backdrop complete with shade to grab some images before tackling the overbright rocky outcrop. Anyway, enough of the hardships (as if a portrait shoot of a beautiful bikini clad woman on a hot sunny beach is a hardship!) and onto the pictures....

Bright, high sun is not the photographer's friend. This is one of a number of shots taken in a nice shady spot.

A nice rocky seat for Alex, which I'm sure wasn't comfortable at all, but it didn't stop her smiling.

It was a truly beautiful beach with some fantastic rocky outcrops just right for posing on.

Alex had a quick dip especially for the last few shots. This is my absolute favourite from the shoot.

...and back to the shade to finish the shoot.

I've had quite a few enquiries regarding the female portrait shoots. n case you are interested they can be done as a Standard Portrait Location Shoot, with the the only extra being the makeover. Please get in touch for more details.
