New November Dates !
About the Experience. . .
Black's Beach is probably our most popular and certainly one of our favorite locations. We have been shooting there since 2005 and after many summers of amazing sessions in the surf, we have perfected the process of creating an amazing experience and capturing it with stunning photos! The adrenaline rush you will get from this experience is unlike any other, and the 'rush' lasts for days or even weeks. If I had to find a comparison, I would have to go with sky diving... and I have done both!
This is 'your day' and 'your shoot'. It's this simple, we are limited to only one sunset, one golden hour, one perfect wave with the sun in just the right spot, one chance each evening to create the magic. So that's the limit, one client, one surf session per day. You are welcome to bring a friend, male or female, to either shoot with you or split/share your shoot. Just let us know ahead of time so we can coordinate the logistics and choreograph the posing.
Your session will last roughly two hours, finishing just prior to sunset, and you will be getting wet, so plan accordingly! Black's Beach is a 'clothing optional' beach, but even if you are planning to shoot mostly nude in the surf, we recommend bringing a wrap, colorful sheer scarf or cover for some additional fun shots. The water is cold this time of year, so we will be staying in close to the shore in and shallow water where we can get the best shots.
Be Prepared! There is a steep hike down to the beach with a total drop of 300' (see photo below) so bring shoes and light clothing for the hike up and down. Bring a towel, and water, along with a plastic bag to keep your clothes and towel dry while you are in the surf. DO NOT bring valuables down to the beach unless you are bringing someone along to watch them. We will all be in the surf together and items left on the beach can be at risk. If you wear make-up, keep it waterproof, otherwise it will be running off your face within a few minutes. The same for your hair, keep it simple and don't spend hours with the curling iron prior to your shoot, we will capture some close face shots at the beginning, but the sooner you get fully immersed, the sooner your shots start looking legit.
