Hi Foonji,

I wouldn't know what a good location for a swimsuit model shot is.
However if you have some ideas such as:
you need a background such as the lake,
you need bushland,
you need an old homestead,
you need a waterhole, swimming hole or creek,
you need ?,
I may be able to help you find a (the) spot.
Feel free to give contact details and I will give you a call.

Cheers,
CD

Ok, ideally after a water hole/swimming hole of some sort...if there are any good ones about... could be rocky area or bushy...

I know i might be dreaming, but I don't want to travel out of act if possible.

pulled this from a website "I really like the cliffs on the Molonglo down the bottom of Stockdill Drive in Holt. Good jumping, deep water, nice little beach to lie around on and nobody is ever there."

that sounds great... now to find it..


im on mobile net atm, so its hard to use google maps, have to wait til work tomorrow and hit it up.

Perhaps one of the pic-a-nic areas on the south western shores of Lake Hurley Burley?

Or bring her up to Goulburn over the weekend for Bluesfest. We can shoot her near the BBS.

The best area in Canberra for a swimsuit shoot - wouldn't that be the Gold Coast? :biglaugh:

Yeh, i was thinking about Lake Hurley areas before, I'm going to have a look at them and see what they have to offer.

I can't overuse the work car i have, i'm lucky to have use of it on the weekends for local use.

Keep the lookout on the top of red hill in mind. Close to the city. Some bush surrounds. Nice views. Sunrise and sunsets.
