Its not really a particularly professional thing to do and note there are no rowdy nights out, morning after or cocktails by the pool shots (there weren’t any obvs) – but thought I would share a few pics of my amazing ‘holiday’ with my bessie and working husband Ellie Tobin.
We visited the beautiful San Sebastian (on us both needing a much deserved break away!) Wow. Not only is it a visual feast of stunning scenery, but its a stylish city that’s not been ruined by the usual ‘Brits Abroad’. The pintxos were AMAZING. Wine and Txakoli super delicious, Churros to die for and the shopping districts a real treat! We especially loved the retro funfair at the top of the looming Monte Igueldo mountain – ET and I did scream rather loudly on the wooden, cliff hanging, rickety rollacoaster!
Our minimal Spanish certainly came in handy, as pretty much everywhere we went we needed to speak it, however we did meet a interesting new buddy from NY – Simon from the New York Times, we love you for a last night of Americana (and singing A Horse With No Name loudly) and also for allowing us to bump into Benico Del Toro! Celebs were plentiful in the city as it was hosting the annual International Film Festival – we somehow missed a night out with BDT, which would have put the icing on the cake!
Anyway, sales pitch, excuse for not being available for work and justification of blogging about SS over.
My colour palette was very prescriptive for clothing being that it had to be neutral tones – then allowing for all props to be brights of reds and yellows.
This is a recent shoot I produced and styled for LG Brazil with Santa Transmedia Productions and F1 Driver Bruno Senna. Simon Winnall shot the stills, the whole tv campaign is below, I produced the section with Bruno in as he was in London at the time so we had to work with his schedule – I am finding it difficult to work out what Bruno is saying though! Such a lovely guy though and a dream to work with a relative of such a legend a Ayrton Senna.
The crew were all amazing, thank you all for helping me produce a sterling job!
