Flinders Photography Club managed to plan our photoshoot for the very start of our term break. At first, everyone in the club was dubious of the weather - but luckily we had absolutely lovely weather on that day.

We met at 10:30am and car pooled to Victor Harbor. Unexpectedly, some unwanted drama followed halfway into the journey. One of the club members who was also driving suspected that his car was overheated. So, three out of five cars pulled over and all of us helped check it out. Turns out, it’s just dust off the roadside, NOT smoke; and the car was struggling to accelerate because we were going up the hill.

After surviving the car drama, we finally reached VICTOR HARBOR!

We went for lunch at this awesome fish and chips shop called ‘The Fish Shop'. I know right, how creative is that? HAHAHAHA! But ultimately it’s the awesome taste that I’m going back for. The fish shop serves one of the best fish and chips in South Australia.

After lunch, we headed to Granite Island to do some outdoor photoshoot with our models all dressed and dolled up. The club was lucky to have Lauren and Naomi who are both studying a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics to model for us. They have never modeled before but trust me, if you were to look at those photos; you won’t think that it was their first time doing this. Their fresh faces and amiable personalities impressed us all. We also had people who volunteered to style them.

However, portraitures weren’t the only thing we did that day. A small group of the club members went to explore Granite Island taking panoramic photos of the gorgeous view.

As the sun set, golden light lit up the magnificent umbrella rocks on top of the island. All seventeen of us gathered for a group photo to commemorate the moment. It was all good fun and I was glad that everyone enjoyed themselves; the photographers all had magazine worthy shots and the models felt like superstars. I really look forward for the next outdoor shoot. So if you guys know anyone who loves photography, modelling, styling, make-up or just looking to learn some Photoshop skills be sure to look out for the Flinders Photography Booth next year! :D
