Shoots in Corolla, Rodanthe and Avon are a great excuse to visit places we don’t get to every week. I love em! If everything goes as planned, they are no problem.
It’s the unexpected reshoots/last minute issues that cause a problem.
Unfortunately, there are so many things outside of our control that can cause a shoot to fail, it hasn’t been realistic to commit to locations too far from our home base of Kill Devil Hills. If something goes wrong with a shoot nearby, getting back out is no problem. Sometimes, we may not know there’s an issue until we’re back and downloading the photos from the SD card.
Also, the more travel time, the greater the turnaround time to deliver final photos. Most beach houses have the sun on the front during the later part of the afternoon so we may not know we’ll miss it until the evening.
We’ll keep reassessing everything and if we can make it work will continue to expand the area instead of contract.
Here’s our current service area.
