I planned a beach volleyball shoot in the summer and it didn't work out and boy am I glad. This is the shoot I planned but not when it was originally scheduled. For various reasons we had to push it back to early September and we were blessed with a beautiful warm day and nobody around since it was a day when most people are back to their lives after the summer is over.
I had worked with Erke before but this time she brought along a friend, Cassandra. Super fun to work with and her height came in handy for jumps like you see above and even beforehand with hooking up the net since none of us could reach without a step stool.
We headed to Bradley Beach on the NJ Shore and pretty much had the run of the place. We started shooting around 3pm and shot until the sun set. Now these girls are not pro volleyball players but you'd never be able to tell. We were fortunate to have help with the location and instruction from Landa (true volleyball player and referee).
Both of these girls went at it pretty hard all day with jumping and diving for the ball. We took a break just before the golden hour and got back to it for some of these shots.
