Ocean Club 2014

Ocean Club Resort

Ocean Club Resort

Tropical Imaging and I teamed up again for another great shoot at Ocean Club Resorts.  I look forward to these shoots every year as they are a couple of the friendliest resorts on island with the most helpful staff.  If you are looking for a reasonably priced, casual, and perfectly located place to stay in Providenciales, look no further. Check out at the fresh facelifts in a few of the units!  We will be back soon to photograph the new balconies and other renovations.

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.

I never thought the potholes in Leeward would ever be needed for something useful!

The “tiny sprout” above is our local Lea, who just so happens to be the niece of one of our favorite production assistants!

HGTV A Caribbean Life

Last February Turks and Caicos Productions welcomed HGTV back to the Turks and Caicos Islands for a month to film three episodes for their Caribbean Life series.  For those of you in the US, you can view the episodes here.  I have yet to watch, must try when I am back on the mainland, but I am certain there is some amazing Turks and Caicos footage thanks to all the B-roll lists!

About Left/Right Inc:
The principals of Left/Right, Banks Tarver and Ken Druckerman, both
spent untold years on the front lines of documentary and reality production,
but fate — and a mafia princess — would bring them together. They first
joined forces as showrunners on the hit series Growing Up Gotti for A&E.
The premiere episode of Gotti received one of the highest ratings in the
network’s history, and was chosen as one of the 10 best shows of the year
by The New York Times — the only unscripted series to make the list.
Following this successful collaboration and the production of nearly thirty
episodes, Ken and Banks decided to get out of the freelance game and to
formalize their partnership by creating Left/Right.
Seven years and over 300 hours of television later, the partners can point
with pride to a diverse client base and a ridiculously eclectic mix of projects
that gives meaning to the company name: our projects span the creative
spectrum from Left…to Right. Past and present productions range from
This American Life, the Emmy award-winning television adaptation of the
popular public radio show (for Showtime)…to Mob Wives, the breakout hit
series for VH1 about a group of women who are married to the mob…to
Small Town Security (AMC), the surreal and stranger-than-fiction comedy
series about a family business like no other, to Hawaii Life (HGTV), the
highly-rated and highly-addictive real estate series that forces viewers to
ask themselves why they haven’t yet moved to Hawaii.
“CARIBBEAN LIFE”
Whether you pronounce it ‘Ca-RIB-bean’ or ‘CARIBB-ean,’ one thing’s for
sure, island living is where it’s at! With the success of HAWAII LIFE,
HGTV now brings you the adventurous people who believe that ocean
breezes, white sandy beaches and the sounds of steel drums aren’t just for
the holidays but rather a place to call home. CARIBBEAN LIFE follows the
stories of everyday people who are packing up their regular lives and
diving into the warm waters of the Caribbean and the real estate
companies that help make this island-living a reality.

 

An Exclusive Evening of Art at the Amanyara

art amanyara

On Saturday November 9, 2013 I participated and attended a group art showing at the legendary Amanyara. The event was a fundraiser for the  ECG Youth Centre, a cause near and dear to my heart.  There were a very select few, just ten artists, chosen to exhibit works for the exclusive sold out event.  The three sculptures, two photographs, and one of the two paintings I included in the show all sold much to my joy.  I had the chance to speak with director Roxann Wake-Forbes today and she jubilantly relayed that the event fundraising goals were not only met but exceeded! Fantastic job to Courtney Miller and Roxann who spent countless hours organizing and to all of the many patrons who donated their time and skills to create such a beautiful event for such a worthy cause.  If you would like to volunteer at the contre or discover ther ways in which you can help the Youth Centre thrive please contact Roxann here.

 

Island Life & Times I-Pad Magazine

The Caribbean's only I-Pad Magazine

The Caribbean’s only I-Pad Magazine

Anyone who has ever had a substantial conversation with 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.
