This is the final of my three editorials shot in Portugal, entitled Travellers Paradise. The theme was initially Moroccan inspired, however we decided that it represented all of those people who go travelling in gap years or after university. It shows how other cultures influences and fashions can be included within our own. This was the brightest and boldest of our three editorials.
With a combination of bright colours, tribal patterns and headwear, this editorial really stands out. Unlike the other two editorials, this didn’t feature any early morning shots. In fact most of them were shot in the afternoon and evening. I wanted the shots to have a much warmer feel. Although shooting at this time has it hazards as the models found out with bugs on the trees. It was also very hot. Our models were troopers, especially when walking between locations in their outfits. They definitely turned a few heads, which is always a good indicator that we are doing something different.
The town we were shooting in, is a real treasure trove of locations, there are so many little nooks and crannies. Every time you go down a different road, there is something interesting. We were able to find some great walls and gates that worked particularly well. Published this weekend in Jute Magazine Issue XI, click this link to see Travellers Paradise in the mag.
