It seems as if everywhere i visit during my travels, whether it be the Czech Repulic, New York City, South America...I always bump into outdoor professional model shoots.
This time it happened in Santorini, in the city of Oia.
The lady didn't seem to mind at all that i somewhat joined in to capture my own photos.
The crop that you see here is done so because there are handlers to each side of the frame, and obviously I don't want them in the shot.
I was able to get a few more shots of her in another location a few minutes later, but this was the best shot I had.
Hope you like it

always thought you were a secret Britney Spears fan! How come you always manage to get the ladies posing for you, nothing like this when I was in Oia. The light in Santorini in the spring is so much better than in the summer/autumn, so I guess that is why a model shoot would be appropriate at this time. Professional stuff mate! New career move?
Have a great weekend - B.

you timed your visit to perfection,it`s not often that you come across an attractive model in a professional pose in a perfect blue and white setting and you have taken full advantage of the situation,exposure and focus are spot on,it`s a cracking shot.

She strikes a good pose this elegantly dressed model. Perfect lighting to capture her in the doorway with those framing shadows. Well exposed taking proper account of the dominating white tones.

Il m'est arrivé la même chose en Suisse et j'ai bien aimé l'expérience. Quoique mon mannequin était beaucoup moins souriante que la tienne et aussi beaucoup moins bien proportionnée .

She is beautiful, I hope you got her phone number! It is fun shooting a model shooting scene and they are great to work with since they know how to pose correctly. Good pov and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

A professionnal pose, a smile to show her white teeth, a fashion cloth, and then the scene: a soft blue door of the white house.
I was supposing that the greek ladies were dark hair, but.....
Thank you for sharing (the picture only!)
ikeharel (72131) 2014-07-11 7:49
You seem to draw beautiful ladies on your side... really charming, both the model and the photo.
white dominating color, and stunning mild light-blue, under bright daylight.
Have a nice weekend,

Well, well, well.. I don't know if I would have the courage to sneak a picture like this from a professional, commercial photographer with a bundle of assistants around. I guess the law was on your side in a public place, but I would still have felt like a very unwanted intruder. I'm so glad you had the guts (especially considering your girlfriend was right beside you), because this is is not just technically perfect, it's also very Greek with its blue and white (and some pink skin).

Everywhere I go I seem to bump into large herds of very nosy and very smelly cows, wanna swap?? hahaha, I wish I had the opportunity to stumble across scenes like this. Its a pro style shot, and I could easily see this in a magazine cover. The light, the shadow, her pose, even the direction she is looking are all perfect. Beautiful moment, and what a memory to have of a place.
I must go, I think I hear mooing outside.....haha
ktanska (27852) 2014-07-11 12:17
Model shoots happen in awesome places, just the kind you often go. But then there's still the question on how you get the timing right? Are your holidays somehow in sync with fashion seasons?
Great pose. I also like her shadow on the blue door.
carlo62 (49159) 2014-07-11 15:46
sicuro che si tratti di fortuna?
Io penso al pedinamento....
Bel colpo, la bella luce di Oia è illuminata dal sorriso di questa modella.

very beautiful work like always perfectly well done. Tfs and have a great weekend. Regards, Barbara
jjcordier (79297) 2014-07-11 22:15
J'étais sûr que tu avais réussi à te rapprocher de ce modèle (tu avais envoyé Tosca faire des courses?). Une image de qualité professionnelle que ce mannequin ne renierait pas!
emka (98706) 2014-07-11 22:57
Hi Craig, Nice shot, but doesn't it make Tosca unhappy you make photos of other attractive girls? haha. she looks professional model and so is you photo. Nice dress and look. But maybe the men would also see her legs, and women to see her shoes? Fantastic light management, I have always trouble with white surfaces.

Hee, hee, perhaps I have a warped mind, but as soon as I saw your title, I was reminded of this!
But, seriously, well done you for again "muscling in" on this bunch of glamour photographers and getting such a wonderful shot. And with apparently no compalints from them either!
The light and colours here are wonderful and you have done very well not to have shown too harsh contrasts. The details and sharpness in the pretty model and her clothing are superb and your composition is excellent too as she poses elegantly against a pale blue doorway.
pierrefonds (66855) 2014-07-12 10:21
You have captured well the expression of the model. also the pose is at the advantage of the woman. Ther is a good conytrast between the colors of the door and the colors of the clothing. Have a nice day.
Fis2 (98503) 2014-07-12 12:13
Beautiful girl, curious beyond.
Excellent colors and light.
Good shot, but the legs ;)
Have a nice sunday.
fabbs99 (17167) 2014-07-12 19:51
Great pose and the lady looks every inch a model.Nice image, sharp with good details, well saturated colors and nice composition. Well done.TFS.

Ciao Craig, great portrait of lovely woman, nice expression, wonderful mediterranean colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
jcpix (13930) 2014-07-14 19:59
You already know my sentiment on this one, but does it really hurt to say it again? hehe Yes please! (big stupid grin)
You weren't kidding, the ladies love your lens...even if you weren't the contracted photographer. Pays to be sneaky sometimes, right? :) Man, you sure caught a sweet moment of pose, definitely a model at work. Good thing this wasn't the Naomi Campbell type, she probably would have thrown a few choice words your direction for "poaching."
It may be a staged scene, but it's not as easy as one might think to come away with a strong result...but you have one here. Well done "creeper." ;) Have a good one. Take it easy.
Cheers from down South,
mkamionka (37177) 2014-07-15 3:10
I start to wonder if it is indeed a coincidence or you are searching for opportunities like this one. And just in case there is no model shooting around you always have your own model with you ;)
Pleasure to look at.
rogerl (1616) 2014-07-16 6:32
Craig, you really do have amazing luck or great timing with these things! This is a really well-done shot (too bad about the crop, but you can only do what you can do). Great management of the bright whites, and a well-timed snap, with her smile and pose. Thanks.
delpeoples (58278) 2014-07-19 19:24
I'm a suspicious person, maybe has something to do with my job. But either you stalk gorgeous chicks on holiday or you're the luckiest man in the world. The jury is still out ;)
Anyway, a delightful shot of this beautiful blonde. Wearing white, she contrasts against the powder blue door and complements the white walls so exquisitely. I would have preferred to see more of her leg. Not for reason of pervery, but to see the fashionable shoes she no doubt was wearing.
You're a dirtbag, be proud
daddo (26794) 2014-07-21 3:05
Hi Craig. Well, if opportunity beckons, who are we to refuse, especially when the prize is as photogenic as happened here.The light, all that white, the golden locks and pale blue door- could a photographer ask for anything more? Regards. Klaudio.
cornejo (42907) 2014-07-26 10:36
Hi Craig, very nice shot of this beautiful model, (lucky you my friend), very good framing, sharpness, light, color and quality, super nice job and very well done, congratulations my friend, thanks for sharing.
Good afternoon and happy Sunday.
Best wishes from southern Spain.
serp2000 (44333) 2014-08-04 23:33
Oh, yeah! You are lucky man, Craig!
Another beautiful model, I also like this eye-catching scene. Very nice photo, perfect quality! I think if you will come out hospital you could be famous model's photographer! ;)
I have my personal collection of the models photos too. What do you think about the final part of the Miss World? We lived together in a hotel on Hainan Island in 2007.
