This October designer Anne Bowen assembled a crew of photographers, cameramen, make-up artists, models, and assistants for a week long shoot in Jamaica at the historic Rose Hall and its majestic surroundings. This week long shoot took place under the generous auspices of Rose Hall Developments and its owners, the Rollins family. The shoot involved far more than anyone could have imagined including a helicopter, Learjet, yacht, and underwater filming. Like any creative project, this shoot was not without its difficult moments. Complaints about early 5am call times and excessive heat were common place. Models who previously confessed fears of height and water were asked to scale ancient aqueduct ruins and dive bottomless depths in pursuit of the perfect shot. However, what unfolded was not only beautiful but awe-inspiring.
Again, we are delighted to share with you some rare behind the scenes images
