It’s weird sometimes how inspiration hits you for a photograph and the latest rain forest series was one of those occasions. On a rainy day when I was not in the best of moods, I drove past an area of forest (or as we in The Bahamas would say “Bush”) and was hit with the idea for an image that imitated the tropical rain forest. Now to pull it off I would need a beautiful model to play our amazon, so I called up model and former Miss Bahamas contestant Tavette Darville who was more than willing to collaborate.
On the day of the shoot we made our trip into the bush with equipment and outfits and what you see below was the outcome. Tavette (@td_chic) was a trooper, as the mosquitos were out in full force but we stayed focus and made some beautiful images. Some of the image effects were done with a modified rain machine for the water droplets and a rigged smoke machine, it was just me and the model so we had to make it work on set.
