Stefano and team had great fun doing the summer campaign at the Acapulco beach in Mexico. Bringing you the whole idea of putting a successful campaign and the story behind the shoot, in the words of the maverick photographer himself!
The concept we used behind the campaign was to use a tropical background, to express the Spring/Summer campaign to its Maximum expression, we had everything over there to use in our favor – the sea, white sand, and a hotel resort to pull it over!’ elates Stefano.
The whole experience of doing the shooting was amazing. Since the moment we arrived, all the staff, models, and marketing directors were very excited. Shot after shot, everyone in the team got more anxious about the upcoming result.
