Last June Turks and Caicos Productions and North Six Productions welcomed back photographers Inez and Vinoodh to Providenciales to shoot the Michael Kors Wonderlust fragrance campaign. Michael Kors, the man himself arrived on set and the serious tone took an unexpected turn when he donned a retro swim cap (borrowed from the prop table) for a laugh. Lovely to have some lightheartedness from one of the biggest names in fashion!

It is an incredible advertising campaign, not just for the perfume, but for the Turks and Caicos Islands. Our sand isn’t quite this pink, but our waters are certainly this crystal clear and blue!

Jill Nicholls headed this team, and by chance one of her assistants, Todd Knopke, and I later discovered we have a mutual friend from the art scene in New York. It is a small world after all. Here are a few of my favorite props in action. Image below via Elle.
We shot at the beautiful Amanyara resort on the northwest point of Providenciales. This area is ideal for viewing sunset, as demonstrated by the below behind the scenes photo from the beachfront villa.
