Lands End Photo Shoot

lands end 4

Last January, Turks and Caicos Productions welcomed Lands End to Turks and Caicos to shoot their Swim and Family Spring 2015 Campaign.  This was our first time working with Minnow11 Productions and the fabulous Lindsay McGill.  She’s a Hawaii based producer, (mama to TWO pro surfers, how cool is that!) so was great to work with someone who automatically gets what is is to produce on an island!

We were thrilled to cast some of our local kiddies in the campaign.  Those of you in the know, check out Adrien in the super cute striped rashguard above and below.  Little Lewis taking a stroll for Toddlers, too!

And one of our famous potcakes got in on the fun too!  Big thanks to Potcake Place who are always on board, tireless stage moms so these furry friends get to model.  These ads do help raise awareness about these special pups looking for forever homes.  If you have a big heart for homeless dogs please consider making a donation.

See that scrumptious pail-on-her-head cutie-patootie below far right?  That’s a dear friends darling, Selah!

It’s always fun to work on shoots that want boats.  This sailboat beauty in the background had just been restored by a neighbor friend, great way to relaunch her!

Sometimes we need more from a boat than to just float around looking pretty.  This shoot required a big enough boat to haul 30 cast and crew plus equipment quickly to an outer island where we had found the perfect location for the below spread.  See a little more of the behind the scenes images at Lands End On Location. Come back and see us again Lands End!

I had the opportunity to cast some of our beautiful local babies for this client.  Evan, the precious pictured above, thanks to her mommy being a photographer and a laid back awesome mom at that, got to spend quite a lot of time with us on set.  Nothing like a newborn to steal the show!

Aisla was called in last minute. Luckily she fit the clothes perfectly and was such a sound sleeper that she didn’t move a muscle when the stylist smeared the frosting on her face and hand for this first birthday snooze shot.

It’s hard work being a baby model!  Luckily we had booked a few local nanny’s, my very own Nenette was nicknamed the baby whisperer after she lullabied eight babes back to back into dreamland.

From Scratch Shoot

A few months back I was asked to style for a marketing photo shoot for a brand new company in the Turks and Caicos. Talk about my kinda company; a one woman show, producing lovely, handmade goodies for the island!   Literally  . . . . goodies!!  From Scratch specializes in these pretty macarons, as the stylish logo above attests.

David Yurman featuring Kate Moss

 

David Yurman Kate Moss Turks and Caicos shoot

Can you believe the above shot was done in a black box set up on the beach in Turks and Caicos?  Believe it!  Last April Turks and Caicos Productions had the great opportunity to work with industry icons Peter Lindbergh and Kate Moss.  This was another pairing with North Six, so we had great fun getting this beautiful campaign shot.

PopSugar reports from the Yurman team “Don’t accuse Kate Moss of following in any model’s footsteps — though Kate Upton and Gisele Bündchen were the latest faces to front a David Yurman campaign, Kate, of course, did it first when she was the face of the brand 10 years ago. And Moss is back for more this Fall with a beachy campaign shot by Peter Lindbergh that pays homage to the long-term fashion friendship.

The Enduring Style shoot features black-and-white photos from both decades with 2004 and 2014 images proving that both Yurman’s jewelry and Moss are truly timeless beauties. See the images and go behind the scenes with the team in the gallery.

Kate Upton for Vogue by Mario Testino

As the blog attests, January was a stellar month for Turks and Caicos Productions. We welcomed several high profile clients for this shoot for British VOGUE.  Such a beautiful cover, Kate Upton channeling her inner Marilyn Monroe!

This was my first time working with photographer Mario Testino, what a charmer!  He took famously to one of our PA’s, what a treat to see the light-hearted dynamic between he and his crew.

Kate was down to earth and very approachable, easy to see why her “it” girl status has had staying power.  Her passing made men stare and jaws drop, but she’s a very sweet despite her sex symbol stardom.
