I very rarely used to shoot during Winter, and especially not outside, but this year I decided to seek the light and the warmth rather than waiting for it to come in England.
As some people know I often just pick a general area, and then set myself the task of finding locations to shoot at. Early this March I set of to the sunny Algarve with the talented and lovely Fawnya, after having had a really successful trip to Scotland with her the previous year.
The Algarve is quite a busy holiday destination, but the usual early morning starts meant that they didn’t really trouble us, and I’d found a large number of potential places to shoot.
This is early morning on our first day on quite a popular beach, and we’d already started to find some great rocks.
This looks almost like an underwater cave, and indeed it is when the tide comes in. Fawnya did extremely well with the very rough rocks.
This beach had the most amazing rocks structures, which I’m sure my geologist friends could explain how they came about. However, we found they were just a great playground for Fawnya.
Another great rock structure, and I’m not sure what caused those holes but they made a nice pattern, with a acrobatic pose from Fawnya.
A super double cave.
And there were quite a few areas of orange rocks, and we felt they made a great background and the multiple layers of rock really work. They were however very tricky to pose on but Fawnya did a magnificent job.
Many thanks to Fawnya for another really enjoyable and productive trip, we make a great team, and there’s a huge amount of images to come from this trip. She’s a super location model integrating herself with the environment, and it would be great to do more trips together.
