Jessica: On Location in Salvador

Jessica: On Location in Salvador

Let me start out by saying, how fun this shoot was. I have known Jessica for a few years now and I thought that a Punk/Rock theme would suite her for this shoot. With the theme in mind, we raided her closet and her mom's, for some outfits made-to-order.

IT ALWAYS PAYS OFF TO DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE A SHOOT.

Jessica and I took the time to scout out a couple places in Salvador that would make for appropriate backdrops.

Salvador is a really beautiful city with many interesting places, but that didn't necessarily make it easy in finding a location; you always have to keep safety on your mind there.

We ended up finding this spot that had police patrolling around it, behind the Vila Velha Theater, just off Avenida Sete de Setembro. What a beautiful neighborhood.  It is in an open area, overlooking the ocean on Salvador's west coast.  It was secure, not too packed with people and a bright sunny day.

Walking around in that area, we found some abandoned buildings that we ended up shooting near as well.

I really wanted to find some places with graffiti, but all the places we found were in sketchy areas. I had remembered this spot above a parking garage in Pelourinho with colorful textured walls, so that was going to be my back up spot if we couldn't find another place.

I thought we struck out a little when we went with my plan B, but when we turned up, we found that some graffiti had been added to those textured walls.  Sweet luck!

This spot in Pelourinho, was where I took my favorite shots of the shoot.

For the last few shots, it had begun to sprinkle, which only added to the fun of the shoot. It was time to pack up, and we were ready.

After a great, but tiring shoot, our reward was at Perini, yummy strawberry sorbet. Perini is definitely something that Rio is missing!

 

Jessica, you could easily be a model!
