After my first week to Rockhampton and Brisbane, I rent a car to go to Surfers Paradise then towards north to Hervey Bay (see next article). From Europe, this famous surfers huge beach looks like paradise! That’s why I wished to stop there for 1 night.
I booked an amazing hotel on the front beach to perform the photoshoot: Peppers Soul. Prices are ok compared to France or England, it’s a modern hotel – not that recent, but you pay the amazing view from 4th to 70th floor! To local residents, it was nice but “usual”; they explained they dream to see old buildings in Europe lol. On my side, it was like a dream: a huge one room apartment with a long balcony up to the sea… I woke up at 4:30am to see the sunrise!
There I met a very nice make-up artist and hairstylist Kristy Laura mua who helped me to organize the photoshoot ahead. She managed everything so well to get the 1st model Ella prepared in order to start on time. Then she took care of Hauwa ‘s make up and hair while I was shooting Ella. All 4 of us had good fun, playing with the environnement of this huge hotel to catch the best before sunset 🙂 Thanks so much girls! There were so many people there that we could go everywhere laughing like teenagers without being noticed! Please have an eye bellow 😉
You will also see some pics of places from Surfers Paradise to Bilinga (south). I’ve never seen such buildings along a beach! It was winter but I really appreciated the cool weather with this infinite blue sky above Coral Sea … people looked so relaxed and happy there even if it is a touristic place!
