We bring the kayak to Mangel Halto one of the most clearest waters in Aruba.
Length: No more than 1 hr
We will meet in the morning - I can do a start time any time between 9 am. The morning is best for lighting and having the water look nice and blue. The location is about 25 minutes off from the main resort area at a beach called Mangel Halto. I do not provide transportation, so it is up to you to get there via rental car or taxi. It is very easy to get too, but again it is not in the tourist area.
How the session will go:
- We shoot one person at a time for photos and the video you can do it together in the kayak same time or only one person video.
- The kayak has no paddle, no seats, etc. You are just in the kayak to pose for the photo/video.
- The kayak is anchored down so you will not float away.
- We assist you with getting in and out of the kayak.
- Basically, you will go down some stairs (see the blue stairs in examples) into the kayak. We pull you out, anchor the kayak down, take the photo/video, and then pull you back in! It is very simple, but I just like to give all the details of how it works.
- From the examples, you can see some of the posing to do that looks nice - it is best for you to know a few poses because I will be at a far distance from you, so I won't be able to guide you the entire time. But I will help you before you get into the water, of course - it's just once you are in the kayak, I can't constantly give directions.
The session is with the drone only and you will receive 20 drone images and a 30-45 sec video clip as the final product. Right now, the turnaround time is 2-3 weeks. All images and videos are delivered via digital download in high resolution. Payment is made in cash at the time of the session. You will have to sign a contract ahead of time - the contract is the confirmation.

Can you Photoshop my (....)?
I do not offer Photoshop services as it requires extensive, custom work which is not included in the pricing. My editing services include lighting adjustment and minor touch ups.
I know everywhere we look, we are told that we must not only be perfect, but unrealistic. That we are not good enough as we are. My goal as your photographer, is to bring out the beauty from within. The special light that is inside of us all - no matter how many laugh lines we have.
If you have a specific insecurity, please let me know ahead of time. I would be happy to offer suggestions in terms of clothing, styling and posing to make you feel more confident at the session!
