Swimwear Portraits – Kristy Lee @ Point Pelee

Swimwear portraits at Point Pelee National Park with model Kristy Lee in a Guess Bikini

Swimwear portraits.. spring, summer or fall my beach kit is simple. When shooting swimwear and thinking lenses, the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS is my go-to for beach/location portraits. The compression at 200mm is absolutely amazing as is the bokeh at f/2.8. It should be interesting to see what the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 ART can do in 2017 when it gets warm enough to be on the beach and not turn into a human icicle.


As a backup to natural light, I typically bring an Alien Bees B1600 and the Alien Bees 22″ standard white beauty dish. I typically teeter back and forth between natural light and studio light to give the model/client more options. 

The Result

The gallery below is a set of favorites from our shoot with Kristy at Point Pelee.  I plan to visit this park a lot this year as in 2017 is Canada’s 150th birthday and I have my 2017 National Parks pass and plan to make good use of it! 🙂

Thanks to Kristy Lee! You rocked it in your Guess bikini! <3
