Colombia isn’t usually the first place that comes to mind when thinking of somewhere exotic to shoot, but it should be. Just like Colombian-born bombshell, Sofia Vergara, her home country is photogenic, beautiful and a total knockout that is even more captivating in the flesh. The Colombian Caribbean has a rich diversity of beach and city locations making location scouting an on going treasure hunt to find somewhere even more beautiful than the last. Our recommendation? We take our clients to Cartagena and Santa Marta. In Cartagena there’s no deficiency of buildings full of personality, splashed in graphic colours and hidden mansion estates with chequered marble floors and rainforest-like gardens. Cartagena also boasts incredible beaches along the surrounding islands that are accessible by speed boat, making the journey as exciting as the destination. And with next to no waves, people dare to build their houses right by the waterfront. It looks incredible, believe us. Santa Marta on the other hand, is the oldest city in Colombia and more serene by comparison. Santa Marta is somewhat of a surfer’s paradise, fringed by beautiful beaches around the National Park, Parque Tayrona and it is this setting that keeps us coming back for more. If looking to shoot fashion, beauty or swimwear campaigns and editorial, Colombia is worthy of your consideration. Just take a look at some of our work for Bergdorf Goodman, Bonobos and J. Crew to see exactly what we are talking about. We’ll be expecting your call any minute….
