A few weeks ago I was commissioned to photograph some interior and lifestyle shots of MY Solal.
Apart from a previous product shot on a Yacht this was my first commission to photograph a MY Yacht for a Charter brochure. The commission was for 7 East Yachts and the scheduled shoot date was mid October which is still sunny and warm on the Cote d’Azur. Unfortunately is was already apparent on arriving at the Yacht that the conditions were not perfect for a yacht shoot, the forecast was for strong winds but after much discussion with the client and the Captain it was decided we would continue as planned and see how we got on. To add to the potentially less than perfect weather conditions there had been a slight communications problem with the models resulting in one of the 4 models (the Dad) not turning up as he had not been confirmed by anyone.
Despite the above we continued on our mission and managed to get some images before the Yacht got too rocky. Therfore this commission is a work in progess as the conditions were far too windy to venture below deck to photograph the cabins . The below photos are a work in progress, the remaining interiors and images with the male model have been re-scheduled for March 2017.
