Photographer: Michael Schnabel

This brief  had us looking to find a summery Europe in South Africa, so we scouted a variety of the wine growing areas outside of Cape Town and ultimately settled on Stellenbosch (to create the feeling of Germany in the summer time) and a fruit farm in the area of Grabouw (to create the feeling of Tuscany). The images were shot during hot, dry midsummer in Cape Town, so these two little towns, one at the foot of the mountains and one on top of the mountains gave the fresh, green elements we needed. As always with photographer Michael Schnabel the early morning and late evening guaranteed the opportunity to capture each location in its best light and the great team work of the  photographer and agency on this shoot allowed for the spontaneous elements which give these images their authentic appeal.
