I recently spent a little time in Mauritius working with the Attitude Hotel Group on a project to promote their latest hotel, Zilwa Attitude (Island Attitude), which is launching towards the end of the year. The idea was to photograph a few guest experience's such as, beach walks, a stand-up paddle through the mangroves, a sunrise boat trip to an island for a traditional Mauritian breakfast picnic, boat trip to an island for a massage experience etc. It's an island with many islets so naturally boat trips feature often. It was one of the toughest jobs i have ever been on. Torrential rain, wild heat and humidity and long hours made for tough days behind the camera. But the team was amazing and we dug in deep and came back with some work that we we can all be proud of. The first phase to promote hotel has been launched in the form of an interactive website. Check it out here. We love how the pictures really do come into their own as part of the multimedia experience. It's something we would love to see more of. Below are just a few of our favourites and all that we can share at the moment. We'll share the rest when phase two is launched in May 2014. Our studio neighbour Steve is responsible for the spectacular film that greets you on the landing page of the site. He's a real character but what a talent. Trust us, check the film out, it will make you want to book a trip to the island for sure.
