The brief? Individual portraits and a daring groupshot to reflect the Desert River personality and vibe. Fun and engaging. We set up a mini studio in their warehouse with a white seamless backdrop and a few soft boxes to light up the ‘models’. On stage, most of the guys got into the swing; loose, creative and au natural all round. For others though, being in front of the camera is not their thing and shyness prevails … at the start anyway. A few laughs and bloopers later and the ice is normally broken. Desert River owners Michiel and Claudia have been hugely successful in creating the concept and bringing together an awesome, and now sixteen-strong, team. Both are great friends and Michiel is a formidable partner to bounce ideas off. Their site is worth a visit and might even see yourself ordering some nifty gadgets.
