For the POETRY Summer fashion shoots, we moved to the Bahamas, to find the most stunning location scenery on a deserted pure white beach, pristine clear water and stunning white rock formations. It wasn’t exactly around the corner from the hotel, but it was definitively worth the drive. UK Producer Claudie gave the thumps up - not only to the location, but also to the cooking of caterer Shauna, who spoiled the production team with delicious local food.
Next shoot day took place on the white hotel beach with beautiful pool, delicious cuisine and all amenities of a luxury boutique hotel. It is obvious that there is someone who knows what media crews need. Former New York photo studio owner Tom Marazza is the very relaxed and friendly owner of this gem ‘La Bougainvillea’, as well as of the spacious ‘team’ villa next door. In fact he has turned the spacious, beautiful terrain almost into an out door Studio location.
