A recent call from Denmark enquired if I could photograph a boat in Malta. The client Therese Thorgerrson asked me if i could go to Cottonera and recce the “boat”. Little did he know that it would turn out to be a rather big boat, to say the least!
It turns out that the ‘boat’ in question was a rather large yacht, moored at Camper & Nichols’ Grand Harbour Marina in Cottonera, Malta. Arrangements were made to photograph the yacht on two separate days. One at sea shooting from a tender and another day for the yacht interiors. Allen sourced the services of a specialist yacht interior stylist and designer: Sarah Zammit. New furniture was flown in especially for the shoot which went without a hitch. Hi resolution files were send via the internet to meet the clients tight deadline, as the Yacht is due to be available for charter this Summer and a new website and brochure had to be produced with the new photography. The shoot was rounded off with a sumptuous and enjoyable meal with the owner and crew the evening before she flew back to Denmark.
