Being there.

Sometimes it isn't feasible to take a subject yacht to an exotic location for a shoot.

Thankfully there is Photoshop.

I am sometimes required to replace the view of the scene around a yacht with something more appealing and perhaps less distracting than the location the yacht is parked in for the shoot. The old maxim, Your'e selling the sizzle, not the steak holds true for yachts. It's much better to sell the dream of enjoying breakfast on the aft deck of your new yacht while taking in the beautiful white beach in a secluded bay than being parked shoulder to shoulder with your neighbours in a crowded marina.
