Sailing With Models: Nautical Shoot

“Happiness is sailing all your troubles away.”

There’s really nothing quite like enjoying a bright Saturday morning by doing a little sailing!  You add a few fabulous models into the mix and I call that a win all around.

Last weekend, a group of fun-loving and adventurous models and photographers (naturally including myself) decided to take to the open sea!

Well, okay, it was a lake.  😉

But aside from quibbling about our bodies of water, the whole idea just sounded too fun to pass up.  The models got on board a small sailboat, while the photographers crammed into a pontoon which ran alongside the sailboat so we could capture the models.  It was some of the most fun I’ve had on a fashion shoot, the nautical theme was very well realized.  Our models were wonderful.  One of them was actually the makeup artist, but she looks so darn fabulous, we just had to include her in the actual event!  (She did a great job, by the way, total natural.)

One of the greatest challenges was simply to steady ourselves as the boats were in constant motion.  Whenever a good shot would present itself, half a dozen photographers would rush to one side of the pontoon, rocking the boat just a bit.  And major kudos to our sailing models, who managed to keep poses in spite of the movement!  Everyone finally got their sea legs.  And the results were amazing.

Happy sailing!
