September Safari- Location Beach Senior Grad Portraits @ North Wind N Sea Beach- off Fern Glen | San Diego | California | United States
September is taking us to the beach to photograph senior grad portraits. Come join us for a fun evening in the fresh LaJolla air. We’ll have some senior models to work with, and Launey will share some ideas for off camera flash, fill lighting and natural lighting. You can experiment with different techniques to see what you like. I will have an off camera light with radio slave for some images. Bring what you like and we’ll have a ball! Senior portraits are fun to create with students being in the modeling age and loving to look cool and fashionable. We’ll meet down by the beach on the corner of Fern Glen and Neptune Place (the house that we walk by is 7082 Neptune Place, La Jolla Ca 92037.) Park anywhere on Fern Glen, Neptune Place ,Vista Del Mar or Belvedere and meet us there. We’re here to have a fun time and create some Senior fashion images. If you know a senior grad this year or last, that would like to join us message me at safari@ppsdc.com or text at 619-733-3736 so we will know how many models will be joining us. They can bring props and layer clothing. There are NO bathroom or changing facilities. Photographers, text or email that you will be coming, so we know to look out for you. See you there!
