Behind the Shoot: High Summer

Marrakech: home of balmy weather, bustling souks and beautiful palm groves. Last month, the Jigsaw Photography Team headed for North Africa’s must-visit city to shoot our High Summer shoot on location. Here’s the story behind the shoot in Jigsaw Production Coordinator Francesca’s own words:

“Morocco gave us so much as a location from beautiful landscapes to incredible natural light and traditional riad architecture. All 3 days were spent shooting from sunrise to sunset to capture that amazing light and really showcase the clothes in such stunning surroundings. The local Berber tribe cooked delicious tagine for our lunches out in the desert, and made fresh mint tea in the afternoons. Meeting them and getting to know their culture was a special experience. Any challenges? Too many beautiful shots to chose from…but I have to say that!”

WHERE TO EAT
