The Purpose and Importance of Sunglasses

photography with sunglasses

Sunglasses are a fashion statement closely identified with such A-list celebrities as Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Grant, Elton John, John Lennon, Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Bono, and many more. 

In addition to protecting the eyes from harmful Ultraviolet (UV) rays and other elements, sunglasses also help reduce eyestrain, squinting, glare, and headaches; improve clarity; offer protection from wind and debris; prevent wrinkles around the eyes; and improve driving safety.

According to Visit Greater Palm Springs, USA Today, and the Weather Channel, the greater Palm Springs area has 350 days a year of sunshine.  As a result, Palm Springs is among the world’s most popular destination for outdoor activities and recreation.

As one of the most experienced and talented photographers in the Palm Springs area, I use sunglasses frequently when shooting family photos sessions, weddings, and golf outings.  People look great in sunglasses, they avoid squinting, and kids love them.

Please feel free to contact me to book a photo session at your favorite hotel, Airbnb, or entertainment venue such as the Palm Springs Air Museum, Living Desert, Palm Springs Aerial Tram, outdoor music concert, or Red Jeep Tours.
