Photo ideas:

Overhead drone photo. Laying down, standing

Slow shutter photo with water/waterfall for milky effect- laying on rock in middle of water etc.

Smokebomb - limited use so need to be strategic

darkroom- dark walls with limited light for moody effect

Standard headshots and model poses.
