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.

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...
We had once again a great photo shoot for Macy’s in the Caribbean. This time together with Producer Léonard Cuinet-Petit from Brachfeld/Paris the young Macy’s fashion brand “Maison Jules” was perfectly ‘mise en scene’ by Australian photographer Brooke Coffey.
