POV: you shoot your clients next fashion collection in a stunning villa in Bali.
This was the most stunning location to shoot in. A beautiful villa in Bali, totally a world of its own and overwhelmingly photogenic. Please meet Tanja and Susa, proud owners of Sol Y Mar, a Singapore based fashion brand, run by two Germans.
To make most out of the time in the villa, we needed a meticulous time schedule in order to make sure we get everything we wanted. I can't remember how many outfits we had, but Tanja and Susa arrived in a fully loaded van, just to give you and idea. Every single outfit was combined with complementing props, all neatly written down in an excessive excel sheet to not waste any time searching.
It was a mad house. And don't even get me started on the heat. The sun was beaming down and created this beautiful summer mood for us but at the same time we had to make sure our models wouldn't melt away. We set up one room as changing room and kept the doors closed at all times. The rest of the villa was open concept living. An extraordinary space.
We left with so many images and created the most stunning gallery for Sol Y Mar. I can't emphasis this enough: preparation is key to a successful photoshoot. Planning, planning, planning. Make sure you have all your scenes mapped out and all the props ready at hand. The only thing left to do then is: ENJOY!
