Melbourne BeachAbandoned Hotel Model Shootout - R Hickman Photography

Melbourne Beach Abandoned Hotel Model Shoot

As June 22nd grew closer the nervousness came more and more. As a primary wedding and event photographer, I was about to step outside of my comfort zone.


“We are so accustomed to the comforts of "I cannot", "I do not want to" and "it is too difficult" that we forget to realize when we stop doing things for ourselves and expect others to dance around us, we are not achieving greatness. We have made ourselves weak.” ― Pandora Poikilos 


Fellow photographer, Andrew came to my house and told me about this amazing location that him and a couple more photographers were going to be shoot. At first the excitement came…the excitement of doing something that I love and being around other talented photographers. Then later on came the nervousness. The nervousness that I was doing something that was new to me. The location was an abandoned hotel located on the beach of Melbourne, Florida. When I arrived, Andrew, Nicole, and a couple of the models greeted me. The location was absolutely amazing. Everything went great as we all brought our own styles to the shoot. Here are some of the images from my perspective, and below are the links to the other photographers perspective. Please enjoy and leave comments.
