Overcoming Obstacles in Beach Portraiture

Ellen LeRoy M.Photog.Cr.

When a bride and groom or portraiture clients choose to have the beach as their setting, they are choosing it for the unique and beautiful scenery that the beach offers. Therefore, as a photographer who is venturing into a new setting which may not be your specialty, it is critical that you prepare yourself for the unique problems and issues you may experience. This webinar is meant to equip you with that knowledge so that you can prepare both yourself and your clients to get the best beach images possible. Ellen will offer suggestions and advice in areas such as:

  • How to deal with the unforgiving weather and environmental elements on the beach
  • Preparing your clients through the consultation so you look like an expert and set yourself up to get great images
  • How to create beautiful compositions with limited elements
  • How to create opportunities for yourself to be hired for beach portraiture
