Vacations are a great time to plan a photo shoot, and you’d be hard pressed to find a better setting to take great family or couple photos than the stunning island of Providenciales, Turks and Caicos. Whether you would like a family photo on the beach, action shots of the kids playing in the sand and surf, or romantic sunset pictures to commemorate an anniversary -Provo offers wonderful photographic opportunities. With a bit of planning, you can create wonderful photos to keep forever!
Best times for taking shots are in the early morning or late afternoon hours. Sunrises and sunsets provide some amazing colors for the shots and create a wonderful dreamy feel to the photos. It may be early to rise, but sunrises are worth waking up for.
Choose colors for clothing that will contrast nicely with the turquoise colors of the sea. Oranges, reds and pinks work nicely!
Bring extra props like hats, beach towels, kids toys, a beach ball, or a frisbee.
Choosing Photography Locations
Sailing and boating excursions are great times to take photos, not only on the boat but also on the small islands that Provo excursions often take you. Just be sure to bring a waterproof camera!
Get creative with beach photos! Remember that water reflects light, so you can get some wonderful photos with reflections in the wet sand.
You don’t have to limit your photos only to the beach; there are wonderful places to take photos around the beaches. Beach paths, sand dunes, and beach signs are great spots to shoot as well.
