Outdoor Adventure Photo Shoot

Photo Shoot at Deep Water Cay Lodge

My photo shoot at the newly renovated Deep Water Cay Lodge in the Grand Bahamas was jam-packed with various outdoor adventure photo shoots. We had models out fly fishing for bonefish, barracuda and early permit, snorkeling, blue hole diving, deep sea and reef fishing. Of course, it was not just about outdoor adventures, I also had to catch them relaxing in hammocks and around the infinity swimming pool, biking, playing tennis, hiking and shelling on the beach, and even sharing drinks around the Tiki Bar. In addition, the beautiful new interiors of the vacation houses at the lodge had to be photographed. I know, rough duty, but like they say, someone had to do it.

If you like your vacations to be outdoors, and like outdoor travel with endless things to do, than Deep Water Cay is a great place to go. You will need to bring plenty of outdoor gear with so many different activities right at your finger tips. Probably the only outdoor gear you won't need here is your rock climbing gear. The island and the other islands that make up Grand Bahama Island are only a few feet above sea level. White sand beaches, coral, and a few beautiful palm trees are surrounded by the some of the most beautiful aqua and emerald colored waters you will find anywhere on this earth.

If you live in northern climes, and you are in desperate need of warm temperatures, and an outdoor world where you can get a head start on spring, Deep Water Cay in the Bahamas is a great place for a little adventure travel.

Our photo shoot needed to take place in mid January so the team at Deep Water could use the photos for their new brochures and advertising. It was a little early in the season, but still very nice, even though the weather in the Bahamas this time of year can be a little unsettled, so I spent a bit of time dodging rain showers, dealing with winds and looking for dramatic skies. But temperatures in the mid-seventies were very welcomed in January.

Navigating Customs with all the outdoor gear, photography gear, and lighting equipment was interesting, but otherwise a smooth trip. All in all, a great resort photo shoot, and great place to spend a week or so in mid-winter.

Go to the Deep Water Cay website at and their Facebook page: to see more of my images from the shoot, and to get a sense of the wonder of this island tucked into the Bahamas.

One last thing, the staff and hospitality at Deep Water Cay are absolutely first class, lead by Dana and Jane Dibben who manage this little island paradise.
