Everyone has their criteria for what constitutes a livable city.
Notwithstanding hurricane season, Ft. Walton Beach has most of what I want for a week or two of living and working.
What I like best is the abundance of locations for portrait sessions.
I’ve had more than ten shoots there and I’m not even close to running out of options.
An added bonus for me is an endless parade of military jets coming in and out of Eglin Air Force Base. Every day is an airshow.
