Saint-Tropez is located between Marseille and Nice and was an unassuming fishing village until the beginning of the 20th century. During the 1920′s Saint-Tropez attracted many famous figures from the world of fashion, like Coco Chanel who transformed the sleepy fishing village into the jewel in the French Riviera’s crown and it is in hot demand for our photo production services here in the South of France.
While other cities of the French Riviera were influenced by the English or Eastern European Aristocracy, Saint Tropez became renowned principally because of the influx of artists of the French new wave in cinema and the rise of Rock´n Roll in the 50’s and 60’s. It later became a resort for the European and American jet set and a location for tourists in search of a small town´s authenticity and an occasional celebrity sighting.
The production point of view:
Saint-Tro (for insiders) is not a city; it is rather a village, so the variety of locations is limited but nonetheless good. The great backdrops are the harbour left, right and center, cafés, some extremely nice hotels are spread out over the hills of the peninsula many private homes and villas are available to us on request. Not to be left out are the “best” beaches of the French Mediterranean, beaches with broad stretches of white sand, lined by wooden built beach clubs with their own wooden piers, that are great locations for fashion and advertising shoots.
