This is the fourth post in a series designed to give you the low-down on a few of my favourite locations to shoot, from the sand to the studio and in between. Previously, I posted about Lake Eden (you can find the link to that blog post here), North Lakes Woodlands (you can find the link to that blog post here), and Brisbane City Botanic Gardens (you can find the link that that one here!), but today I want to share with you a special little island escape.
Location: Crest Park, Bribie Island.
About 40 minutes drive from my home base at North Lakes (your mileage may vary, of course) is this fabulous little island. Driving over the bridge, I always instantly feel a little lighter – heading into island time!
You’ll want to make sure it’s a fine day for your session at Crest Park, because there aren’t any wet weather options here. It’s also the kind of location that’s really only suitable for afternoon shooting, so if you’re on a morning schedule be sure to check out my other posts. There is limited disabled access here, but not down onto the sand. What you will find is a lovely boardwalk though, to capture those beautiful beachy shots in the warm afternoon sun.
Crest Park has a playground for the littlies, and amenities closeby. There’s greenery around for those parkland-like shots, as well as the sand if you’re so inclined – if you’re not, the safety of the boardwalk will still offer water in the background. Once we’re done, you can pick up some fish and chips and enjoy the last of the evening by the beach before heading home, making your session just a little bit more memorable.
If Crest Park sounds like the spot for your next session, you can contact BAC Photography via email at firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to hearing from you!
