Yesterday morning I woke up at 7am to go to Lindos, which is located about 45mins from Old Town for a photoshoot. I decided to hire the photographer to help me to do the photoshoot so that I can capture the beauty of Lindos and make my trip to Rhodes a memorable one. It was also as a birthday present to myself. Beside I haven’t done an outdoor photoshoot without make up until yesterday morning. It was an interesting experienced.
So let me give a round down of the entire journey. I was picked up at 8am from the hotel by my photographer, Magdalene, in her small Hyundai car with her 3 young children (pretty and handsome) and her partner. They squeezed themselves into the backseat and let me had the front seat instead. We chatted through the entire journey and she told me a bit more about herself. She is a Pilates and got into photography about 8 years ago. She has an upcoming exhibition showcasing her art pieces together with 2 more local artists. Magdalene is nice and friendly.
We arrived at Lindos around 9am and the sun started to heat up. The walked up to the acropolis was becoming a bit of a struggle as it was sloppy, slippery and not to forget it was scorching hot! Along the way up, we stopped and took some pictures of the town just to warm me up. It was so hot that I felt tired easily and almost regretted my decision for doing a shoot at Lindos. I had been warned the temperature was 5 degree hotter than Old Town and less windy too.
Anyway, I was glad I chose this location as the view from the top of Acropolis were stunning. As shown in my photos below.
You can see the back of my photographer from my sunglasses. And you can also see how sunny and hot it was! Seriously, it wasn’t an easy photoshoot. Now I began to understand how models feel when they have to do outdoor photoshoot especially under the hot sun and intense heat! Mind you mine shoot lasted1.5 hours and I wanted to give up already. I was so tired that I decided to leave Lindos 2.5 hours early than schedules. I just wanted to go back to the hotel to shower, rest and grabbed a nap. So I asked the owner, Nikos, to rearrange the taxi pickup to noon instead.
But it was definitely a memorable, fun and interesting experienced. Now I’m looking forward to my photos. Magdalene said she will email to me by Wednesday morning. Praying that it turns out great as I didn’t put in any make up, not even any foundation and loose powder. This photoshoot is definitely very different from my previous 2 photoshoots. Will definitely post those photos after I have received it. Provided I look great! Hahaha
