Thread: Where can I take beautiful beachside + car shot in Singapore?

    Default Where can I take beautiful beachside + car shot in Singapore?

    Hello clubsnappers!

    I'm new here, so would really appreciate any form of pointers here from the veterans here.

    I am doing a magazine cover shoot for my company. My idea is to have a beach in the background plus a car in it. Not many beaches in Singapore is accessible by car directly. Someone told me that Sentosa beach allows that but need to apply for a permit. Any other suggestions of some undiscovered beach/waterbodies around?

    thanks!

    When you say beach? Are you looking to have the car on the sand, or rather just palm trees and sand in the background?

    Follow Sembawang Rd to the end turn right at the round-a-bout onto Kg Wak Hassan and you will be as close to a beach as just about any road you can imagine. (in Singapore, assuming the road is still open) The beach is small but it might give you what you want.

    Try the carparks along Nichol Dr (near Changi), you might be able to get a good sunrise shot with the water and the car.

    Out towards Pasir Ris farmways there is a land reclamation loaders with a pretty big dirt rd that leads close to the water, you can walk down it to get "beach" access for photography and not be hassled by the security, not sure if they will let a car down there, but if you got the number you might be able to arrange something with management...and no I don't have the number.

    Also with KM8 now defunct, you would have pretty free access to the parking lot near there, and with a few creative angles might be able to ensure lots of sand and a palm tree or two in the shot.

    the sembawang beach is really the closest i can ever get. thanks!

    a surprising discovery is the tree canopied drive to bottletree park round the corner is really nice.

    i found the rest point facing the upper seletar (i think?)..just outside the mandai crematorium is good for photography also, the trees are calming and the water background is soothing.
