Andy Mann recognizes that this is a guy who has a real passion for the Turks and Caicos Islands and is a virtual idea factory when it comes to owning and operating his business. So when he hinted at “something big” in the works last year I pressed for more info and he divulged his latest “brilliant” brainchild. I nearly couldn’t believe my ears; an interactive cutting edge I-Pad magazine filled with jaw dropping images and video footage illustrating an insider’s guide to the Turks and Caicos. Amazing and ambitious idea indeed. . . . so ambitious I thought at the time that I wasn’t quite convinced it could or would come to fruition. I attended the launch party in October and could not have been more impressed; the photography, the stories, the insight, the interactive navigation. This is one cool, contemporary read. I am extremely proud of Andy and his entire team, I spent that evening feeling very fortunate to work alongside these fine folks regularly. If you have an I-Pad and you haven’t seen any of the four issues as of yet, you are missing out! Read about it here, download it here, did I mention all this awesomeness is absolutely FREE?! Go!!Anyone who has ever had a substantial conversation with
Snwazna Adams, the then newly crowned Miss Turks and Caicos, while working on a fashion shoot for the 2014 issue of Discover Magazine Turks and Caicos. This 5’11” beauty was soft spoken, humble, and what I would describe as moderately shy. It was great getting the chance to chat, learning how to pronounce that fierce first name (SNOW-ANA), and learning a little bit about this 26 year old. She just traveled all the way to Moscow to participate in the Miss Universe pageant where she made the whole country proud.This summer I met
We hope you had the experience of a lifetime Snwazna, thanks for being a shining ambassador of the Turks and Caicos Islands!
Lovely photos by brilliant
In early December I styled for a photo shoot that I had been conceptualizing since September (literally). The client; one tough cookie and hard critic. Yup . . . . ME.
It’s pretty much impossible to style AND be the subject simultaneously, but thanks to our brilliant photographer Andy, the ideas and inspirations leapt to life through his lense.
I pulled out my props and set the scene and then promptly laid down on the job while Andy did all the work. I am sure he enjoyed not having to share his viewfinder with me!
Can’t thank him enough, this shoot was loads of laughs. As I am not a huge fan of posting personal photos, I’ll let the readers who have interest head on over to brilliants blog post to see and read more!
