Editorial fashion shoot - pyrate style for 032c magazine

Barbados’ local talents present international fashion

Rihanna cover Magazine 032c Barbados biker fashion shoot 032c Magazine beach shoot

A very different kind of editorial shoot we had for the magazine 032c - because it is a very different kind of magazine. It was called the magazine with a brutal elegance, and according to the New York Times, “the magazine fuses art and architecture, literature, urban studies in ways that can make one forget how depressing a visit to a newsstand has become.” INDUSTRIE Magazine credited 032c with setting "the most significant editorial agenda since The Face.” 032c was awarded the German media award Lead Magazine of the Year in 2008. Its fashion editorials have been awarded Lead Mood and Fashion Photography awards in 2014 and 2015. Even Barbados’ own goddess of music, Rihanna was on a cover of 032c

Our way of producing matched the PYRATE STYLE clothes collection that we were photographing in Barbados. It was a guerilla style shoot with a very small crew – from the German 032c team came Leah Miriam Hess as Stylist/ Art director and Marc Goehring as photographer for 032c, Troy Burgess was the local PA-all rounder - casting director, props organizer, set dresser, location finder, etc. With only the location idea in mind, we were finding local people and props on the spot. It was a fun shoot especially to see how everybody played along. The result is a lively refreshing editorial photo series – like snap shots of young Barbados’ weekend life.

French Caribbean – locations for Spring/Summer Productions

Shoot Locations with the French feel in St. Martin for fashion photo, film and video

Street location St. Martin Pier yachts St. Martin

The island of St. Martin, which is half French and still part of France and as such a member of the EU (European Union), and the other half – Dutch Sint Maarten, which is now independent, but used to be a Dutch colony, is a melting pot, not only of people and languages (by the way - everybody speaks English in addition), but also of architecture and the hustle and bustle of the picturesque street scenes. French St. Martin with its narrow streets and colorful markets, chic bistros and boutiques reminds of coastal towns in the Southern part of France like Cassis and St. Tropez – just Caribbean style. Dutch Sint Maarten and French Saint Martin both are popular for their harbors with luxury international yachts on massive piers, modern speedboats and colorful fishing boats tied to small wooden jetties.

Zara fashion campaign on locations in Barbados

European location feel for photo and video production

Long Atlantic coast stretch location Vast grassland location

Wild grassland and rough Atlantic sea locations were chosen as backdrops for the Zara Spring/Summer advertising fashion campaign this year. The location feels were more like wild British coast lines and Scottish hills than tropical paradises.
Apart from the locations, the Caribbean Island was selected for the photo shoots and the video production this year because of its good weather in January, the favorable production conditions and the easy access for client, agency and teams from Spain, the UK and the US. Photographer was Mario Sorrenti, Director for video shoot: Gorden von Steiner. 

The "Caribbean Production Company" provided full service: estimates, budgeting, location scouting, prop scouting, crew, catering, production equipment, villa-accommodation, transportation, permits, customs...
