Middle Longboat Key

Portrait Location


I always arrive a few minutes early and have my camera set up on a tripod beside my car, I should be easy to spot. You do not need to be early, as we have set the time of your session for the best natural light. You, of course, do not want to be late either, as the sun waits for no one.

Meet in the Beach Access parking lot! Do not go on out to the beach.


We are to meet at a public beach access 4 miles up from the South Longboat Key Bridge (the access actually has an address of 3495!).

50 yards North of 3465 Gulf of Mexico Dr.


100 yards South of 3500-3600 Gulf of Mexico Dr. (Buttonwood Cove)

This beach access appears to be hidden in the trees on the west side of the road (Gulf side).
