Lifestyle and Bikini Beach Model Shoot at Crescent Beach

You are invited to come to a Crescent Beach Bikini Photoshoot this Saturday, August 16th at 630pm.

We will be at Blackie Spit park at Crescent beach and there will be a number of models coming to be photographed by the photographers. Models are told to do their own preparations for the shoot and to come with bikinis or summer fashion clothing and we'll photograph them around the pier and the beach, in teams, with lights, whatever you like.

Note: On August 16th, it is low tide at 4:08pm and  high tide at 10:31pm, with High Tide at 8:24pm. This means you can get epic beach photos (including sunset) at this shoot!

Meet at the park between the pier and parking lot at Blackie Spit so we can interact with each other and mingle and we'll figure out where to go from there. We'll probably get into teams of four photographers and one or two models, as there will be a LOT of models coming.

The idea is to not get lost or separated for too long and to prepare for the sunset orange sky shot at 8pm.

Please bring your own gear, whatever you need. I suggest you travel with minimal gear. You might even want to bring towels or water to wash off.

If you think you need help with the shoot, don't worry, there will be ample people there who can help you with your camera settings and suggest how you can shoot.

The address for the park is:  3136 McBride Ave, Surrey, BC V4A 3C9

*NOTE: I would love to have one or two assistants help with this shoot, to carry towels for the models and water to wash their feet after. ALSO, if you can help drive the models to and from the location, please comment below and I'll contact you if needed.

Now... the cost for this shoot....I wanted to make this free but the Creative Photography group is now operating in the red, so I'll make a $15 Meetup group fee, which you must prepay on line here to complete your RSVP.

Please post your images on the group after the shoot.

    Thanks for coming to this shoot. It was a great shoot, perfect weather, nice temperature and we got the orange, blue and purple sky for about 15 minutes before sunset.

    Please post your images on the group over the next week and be sure to credit your images with the model and shoot producer (me!) if you post online.

      Ronald, is there another photo album for this photo shoot? Looks like to me that not everyone who attended has posted photos yet. I was really looking to seeing some of the photos done by the guys with the good equipment and lights. Thanks Len

    And of course the bus is late. I'll probably be late, is there someone I can contact to catch up to if the groups have already started?

    August 16

  • Sunra

    On a day like today, what settings are recommended for aperture, shutter etc.? Also, should we bring our speedlights or will there be additional lighting for us to use?

    August 16

    • Ronald L.

      As us for suggested settings when we are there. Bring your own lights as always.

    Thanks
    Steve

    August 15

    • Ronald L.

      Meet at the park between the pier and parking lot at Blackie Spit. Its not a long walk, so you'll spot the mob of us then for sure.

      August 15

    • steve

      how will be the parking space like?

      August 15

  • Ronald L.

    About the weather, the forecast is that it will be dry when we shoot. http://www.weather.com/weather/hourbyhour/graph/Vancouver+CAXX0518:1:CA?pagenum=2&nextbeginIndex=6

    If there is only a little rain, we still still do this event, but I don't expect there will be (blame the weatherman).

    1 · August 15

  • Carlos F.

    Do you still need an assistant? I'd be happy to help

    August 12

  • Sunra

    So we'll be shooting from around 6:30 until sunset?

    August 11

  • Lorissa

    Hey Ron! Do you have enough models? If not, let me know as I would love to join you all!

    August 6

  • Ronald L.

    Alright guys, I've worked out the details and a number of models are coming to join the photoshoot. This will be at Crescent Beach, the *exact* location will be send to those registered a few days prior to the shoot.

    July 21

  • Manmit

    Is this a go for aug 16?

    July 12

  • Robert D.

    Update to the tide tables for that weekend:

    Sat Aug 16 - 4:08PM Low Tide - 8:24PM Sunset - 10:31PM High Tide
    Sun Aug 17 - 5:07PM Low Tide - 8:22PM Sunset - 11:14PM High Tide

    So on the 16th, starting at 6:30PM and going to sunset will be the middle of the flood tide (water coming in).

    Unfortunately, I'm booked both days that weekend. Have a good shoot guys.

    July 12

  • Robert D.

    OK, going on what the description says about having both a low tide and a sunset at the same time, the following are some days that might work for this shoot:

    Sat May 10 - 4:23PM High Tide - 8:40PM Sunset - 9:06PM Low Tide
    Sun May 11 - 5:13PM High Tide - 8:41PM Sunset - 9:59PM Low Tide
    Sat May 24 - 8:43PM Low Tide - 8:59PM Sunset - 3:02AM High (This is the closest low tide and sunset)
    Sun May 25 - 5:27PM High Tide - 8:59PM Sunset - 9:52PM Low Tide
    Sat Jun 7 - 6:53PM Low Tide - 9:12PM Sunset - 1:40AM High Tide
    Sun Jun 8 - 8:02PM Low Tide - 9:13PM Sunset - 2:09AM High Tide
    Sat Jun 21 - 6:54PM Low Tide - 9:19PM Sunset - 1:34AM High Tide
    Sun Jun 22 - 8:16PM Low Tide - 9:19PM Sunset - 2:16AM High Tide

    This information is from the tide tables for White Rock, B.C.

    Assuming we start 2 - 3 hours before sunset, the best days look to be May 24th, June 8th or June 22nd.

    Again, I only checked the weekend days. I know they tend to be busier, but are the only ones that work for me.

    April 16, 2014

    • Ronald L.

      Those three weekends could work. June 8th....

      April 16, 2014

  • Ronald L.

    The Lifestyle and Bikini Beach Model Shoot at Crescent Beach will happen in May or June.

    April 2, 2014

    • Robert D.

      How many hours BEFORE sunset are we starting? And is this a "bring your own gear" scenario? Thanks.

      April 2, 2014

    • Robert D.

      Lighting gear

      April 2, 2014

  • Robert D.

    Looking at the tide table for September, it looks like dates that could work are the following:
    Sat 9/14 sunset 7:25 PM low tide 8:11 PM
    Sun 9/15 sunset 7:23 PM low tide 9:17 PM
    Sat 9/28 sunset 6:57 PM low tide 8:25 PM
    Sun 9/29 sunset 6:55 PM low tide 9:22 PM
    I only checked weekend dates (because those are the only ones that work for me ;-). And anything after September will probably be too cold for a bikini beach shoot.

    August 30, 2013

    • Robert D.

      Yeah, I think we missed the season on this one.

      October 2, 2013

    • Ronald L.

      Yeah. We'll just wait until next year or if we do it, we're not in the water. More likely we'll wait.

      October 2, 2013

  • Manmit

    Either place works...I just like crescent :)

    August 31, 2013

  • Manmit

    Crescent Beach is pretty quiet & secluded in the evenings so would still work well I think

    August 31, 2013

    • Ronald L.

      We can do Crescent Beach.... if you guys want to car pool out there. Otherwise....Vancouver?
