Just talking to a new prospective model and trying to convince him to do some studio shots. Made a quick 2 hr. trip to Sai Kaew Beach located in Sattihip Naval Base to get some prelim. shots – and get away from the heat. Because it is located on the base, it is always patrolled and clean – especially the water, you can walk out to over waist high and still see your feet – it’s that clear. 100 Baht for Farang- 30 for Thai. You do have to leave your ID at the Base entrance and as you can see on the map it’s still a long drive in from the Hwy. We got there about noon, had a quick bite to eat and then enjoyed an hour or so in the water – at least he did – I manned the camera, got some nice shots and a sunburned face – forgot to bring my hat. Tide was out, so there was a lot of beach area today. “Bee” really enjoyed the trip and that broke the ice and we are planning on doing it again with a couple of his friends next week. I’m hoping to have them as models too. Here are some shots and you can see what a beautiful beach this really is.
And I trust what a great model “Bee” will make and you can be assured his friends are just as cute as he is – but we are really talking about the beach here – aren’t we?
If you do get to visit Pattaya, make sure you check out this beach – a little bit out of the way but well worth it. – it looks rather deserted right now but later that day it did start to fill up. Getting there early for some photos really helps – but they also have several cabins/houses that can be rented for overnight visits – just make sure to watch out for the monkeys that also live in the area.
