I have a photo shoot in a week with a bunch of lifeguards. we are shooting at a public pool where they work before it opens. It will be a swimsuit shoot with about 3 girls and 2 guys ages 16 to 23. Does anyone have any advise for this shoot, or maybe any ideas?

A lifeguard stand can be a great prop as well as the rescue floats.

You should ask them to bring all of their equipment with them, sunglasses, whistles, cpr masks, life preservers (but these should be at the facility already) as well as the backboard. They can be pretty good props.

Question, is this a shoot for you or for them? Because where I work, pictures are really a no-no for lifeguards. If these are going to be published in a way the high ups that run the pool they may not like being surprised. But, that's me and I work in the anal retentive Town of Hempstead.

Is this in Cincinnati or cincinatti? As with any shoot. First select your background, then setup you subjects with an aperture that works.

thanks for the advice. I am good friends with one of the lifeguards, who asked me to do a photo shoot with them. i will not be using them for anything other than portfolio (maybe). i plan to give them all a cd with the images on them. if they are posted/published its because they did it, and i might post a few on here if they sign the model agreement.

"ages 16 to 23" Yikes! Be sure to verify their ages and have their parents sign the model release for those under 18. Also, you may need a location release from the owner of the pool. Or you might end up in hot water... get it?... Pool - Hot Water?...

PS I just bought "Legal Handbook for Photographers: The Rights and Liabilities of Making Images" by Bert Krages for $23 on Amazon.com. You might want to pick up a copy.
