An editorial project, a series leading me to the moroccan desert in Marrakesh in December 2017. For this project, we built a team of 2 photographers, 1 makeup Artist, 2 models, 1 Stylist, bags, gear, clothing, and unexpected, mind-boggling locations in the desert and in Marrakesh.

In the unique ambiance of fire and heat, the powerful energy of the desert, ocre tones amplifying this feeling were chosen to build the momentum and the peak of this editorial shoot. We started scouting locations a few days prior to travelling, and finalised our work on the Wednesday upon arrival, where we discovered the amazing beauty of berber tents and the set in which we were aiming to shoot. 

During the evening, we went through the whole plan, the storyboard, the moodboards, and analysed all the elements of the plan to ensure there would be no glitch when the time came. The next morning, 4 AM, makeup, styling, preparing the sets, finalising the last elements, and maximising our efficiency allowed us to complete our series within a very limited and tight schedule. Our Key Visuals (KV's) were in the box, and we were ready to roll. 

We shot during 5 hours, and headed out into Marrakesh to pursue our shoot, which ended with a fantastic cocktail and meal in the center of the city over sunset. 

The Next morning, heads up for another early start. 6AM airport transfer, the team, smiles on our faces, heading home for new projects and opportunities, with a deep feeling of satisfaction, completion, and strong binds between each one of us. 

During such editorial shoots, the high pace, the harsh environment, and unexpected events force us to give our best, and to give our best, I could never have completed such a project without my Profoto A1, my Profoto B2 and the Profoto OCF Beauty Dish which were in my backpack with my gear and clothing, in order to be the most mobile possible.
