Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone could offer some suggestions as to the best beaches in the USA for portrait photography - preferably somewhere in Florida since we are coming up on winter time.

I would prefer something with a nice combination of rocky formations, dunes, grass, and decent wave activity...

Thanks,

Russ

Best snow white beaches with dunes are on Florida's and Alabama's "Red Neck Coast" near Pensacola, but not much wave activity. Best sand dunes and ancient reefs looking like rocky formations beaches with decent wave activity are in northern Palm Beach County and Martin County. On Singer Island (Palm Beach County) there is a State or National Park with an unspoiled, undeveloped beach and a great sand dune. Miami-Dade County has the best tropical looking beaches.

Since you are in Mass, check out Humarock Beach. Great dunes on the south end, with grass, easily accessible and just the right size for portraits.

Well...you prefer Florida, but you'd be hard pressed to find anything better than Corona Del Mar and Laguna Beach for the environment you're looking for.

Sarasota, FL, has been voted one of the top 10 beaches in the USA. One thing to consider is whether you want a sunset shot going over the water (west FL beach) or not (east FL beach). Or you can go to the Keys and both sides are within minutes of each other.

If you're headed south, John U Lloyd State Park is a great spot --- rocks, beach, and a small pier. I absolutely love shooting there.

Thanks all for the suggestions...

Laguna Beach looks great! I'll have to remember that if I go west.

None better than Cape San Blas especially at the end of all pavement in the state park.

There's still time to do some good work down in the Plum Island Reservation in Massachusetts. Especially the Sandy Point Area. The driftwood constructions that people build there have provided some nice balance (framed side left or right to subject).

In Key Biscayne here in Miami there is a beautiful park called Bill Baggs and there are rocks, beach, grass, waves, and a lighthouse. It's gorgeous.

I know of a really beautiful beach on Beercan Island. My wife and I went there on our honeymoon and the sunset was marvelous.
