For some of us, visiting paradise can be a once in a lifetime experience. Capturing your memories just right can make them unforgettable. Whether it be fun shots of your family by the sea, enjoying the sunset with your hubby on your anniversary or honeymoon, or exploring parts of the island together, Tropics can capture your memories for a lifetime.
What You Get (Besides the Photos)
We don’t want to just meet and shoot.
We communicate with you beforehand to decide the best way for us to capture your memories. If time allows, we will even meet you in person before the day of the shoot.
We make sure you are comfortable.
We bring along bottle water, as well as a cold towel for those who really feel the heat, to make sure you are comfortable during your shoot. We also supply you with a welcome pack that has all the information you need to get the most out of your photo shoot.
Direct download of your product.
In these modern times, accessibility is key. That’s why once your photos are ready, you can continue to sit by the pool and drink your rum punch while making your selection. You can browse the photos from your shoot on your phone, tablet or laptop and download them directly to your device and even share them straight to social media.
When Should You Book Your Shoot?
Before or during your stay
If you like to plan ahead, you can book your photo shoot before you even reach the island. If you decide while you are here that you would like some photos done, that is perfectly fine as well. Either way you can submit a form on the contact page, drop us an email, or give us a call!
During our official hours
We are available everyday between 10 a.m. till the sun goes down (This varies between 5:30 p.m. in the winter and 6:30 p.m. in the summer). The most popular time is sunset (inquire for exact time) but any time of day is also perfectly fine. It’s all about how you want to remember your day.
Outside of our official hours
Photo shoots desired to be booked outside of the hours mentioned above are subject to availability and may result in an additional fee. Feel free to contact us about special requests. We recommend booking as much in advance as possible. However, you never know if tomorrow might be available, so still drop us a line!
Where Can We Take Photos
Where you are staying
The majority of resorts and hotels will allow us onto the property to take your photos once you are staying there. If you are staying at a private residence, we can come there too.
Any beach you want
We know you came for the beach! The beaches in Barbados are all public, therefore we can also meet you on one of the many beaches the island has to offer. Just look out for the blue umbrella! You can always contact us for our recommendations.
For those who are a little more adventurous, once you have your own transport, we can meet you anywhere you like. Check out the FAQ section or our social media for some suggestions.

Holiday Photoshoots FAQ
What Is TroPics?
TroPics is a photography company dedicated to capturing your memories while you are here in paradise without taking much time out of your busy schedule of relaxation. We meet you where you are (unless otherwise discussed) and you don’t even need to schedule a viewing appointment (again, unless otherwise discussed) because you can view all of your images on your mobile device (phone, tablet, laptop, etc.).
Whether it’s a romantic get away, a family bonding trip, or even as a special gift for someone, we will help you retain your time in paradise as long-term memories for years to come.
Who can have their photos taken?
Anyone can! It’s not just a service for fun or romantic holiday photos. Our services are a great way to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, engagements, honeymoons or any other special occasion.
How do I book a photoshoot?
Just head over to our contact page and fill out the form under “Booking Form” and let us know when you would like to do it, how many people are taking part, and any other details or questions you have about the shoot.
How do I pay?
To make your deposit: Once a time and date are decided on, we will send you a link to our deposit payment page. Alternatively, you can pay your deposit when we meet you before the shoot if you wish to not pay online.
To purchase your selected package: After the photoshoot we send you a link to view your photos. This is where all purchases can be made. If you are not ready to make the final payment the first time you view the images, you can save your favorites and make a final decision later.
What am I paying for? (What is included in the price?)
You are paying for a Personal, Premium and Professional service. We make sure that you get what you want out of your photoshoot and do our best to ensure that you are comfortable behind the camera. You will be provided with bottled water to keep you hydrated and comfortable during the shoot. Finally we make sure that you know how you can prepare yourself for the photoshoot so that it all goes smoothly.
How do I view my photos after the photoshoot?
Once the images are ready, we will provide you with a link where you can view your photos. Here you can select the photos you like. You can also directly download the images as well as share them straight to social media so that you can showoff how much fun you are having in paradise! Don’t forget to hashtag your posts with #mytropicsphoto
Where can I have the photos taken?
If you are not one for much hassle, we can meet you where you are, or, if you are staying at a beach front accommodation, right outside on the beach! If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, we can meet you elsewhere on the island. There are very few limitations to where we can capture your memories!
How should I prepare for my photoshoot?
Once you make your deposit, we will send you a welcome pack with all you need to know about preparing for your photoshoot. However, here are a few tips:
– Avoid getting sunburn
– Decide what to wear
– Get excited!
What size are my images?
Images can come at all sizes because they are sent to you at maximum resolution, which equates to a size of 30×20 inches. You can download them at a medium size, web size, or resize them as you need later on.
Can I order prints?
You may. There are add on packages for prints of 4×6″, 5×7″ and 8×10″. However, you should allow for at least two days before you leave the island to be able to acquire them. If you desire prints and it is not within the allowed time frame, you will be required to absorb the cost of shipping.
What if I only wanted a shorter time? Like 10 – 15 minutes for the photoshoot?
We find that 10 – 15 minutes is too short for a shoot 95% of the time, because of the packages we provide and the fact that people don’t realise how much fun taking photos is! If you would like to end your shoot before the allotted time, that is perfectly fine, but bare in mind that that will limit the amount of images you have to select from.
