One of my favorite trips ever was to the island of Lamu, Kenya where we shot a lookbook for Raven + Lily.  Such a surreal experience.  We spent months preparing and after a long search we ended up flying in the beautiful Robyn Schrikker (@robynschrikker) at 20 Model Management (@20modelmanagement) from South Africa.  It was the right choice!  She was so wonderful to travel and work with.  The island is pretty small and the only transportation is either by foot or by donkey.  One of the shoot days we hired an antique Jahazi boat!  I got to ride on a speed boat alongside to capture images while boat was moving.  It was one of my favorite days ever shooting.  We ended up on a remote beach along the rocky coast.  So many incredible visuals.   You can also read about this shoot on
