After two weeks of silence we are finally back with a brand new (and very big) set of pictures! We shot it last Friday in the Outback of Australia in the famous town of Broken Hill. It’s been two months since we shot our latest outfit already and I really did miss it a lot! We have been kind of lazy bees those past weeks and to be frank it’s all because of winter. I never used to had an issue shooting editorial over winter but since we live in a van it has impacted everything in our lives. But we are back and there some amazing shooting coming up next.
Broken Hill is located in the West of New South Wales, 1200km away from Sydney. Long before we moved to Australia we read a lot about this huge country/continent and Broken Hill has always been on top of our list. We were so excited on our way over here even though the road was really long and monotonous. We drove 350km without crossing a single town, just kangaroos and an endless landscape as far as you can see.
On our first day we wandered in town for a while and then we made our way to The Living Desert and Sculptures in the middle of the afternoon. Located just 9km from town, this park of 2400ha offers a breathtaking scenery that can be visited either by car or hiking. The major attraction of The Living Desert is the sculpture site where twelve sandstone sculptures were made by artists from all over the world. This is no surprise that the place looks fantastic when the sun goes down and leave beautiful shades of pink and orange in the sky (pictures to come in our Broken Hill diary).
The area of Broken Hill it is known for its fantastic light that’s why lots of movies and commercials were shot there. We start shooting some pictures around 4p.m and 30 minutes later something magical happened. The magic light suddenly appeared and led our shoot to another dimension. We didn’t have to set our camera that much, the light would do all the work for us. That’s when we understand why directors were crazy about this place.
