CAPE TOWN ISSUE 119 Jun 2008

Cool Banana Cape Town photo production

Cool Banana travelled recently to one of the remotest parts of Africa with Elle Italia. Photographer David Burton and his brave team of trailblazers, stylist Sofia Odero and hair & make-up artist Pedro Pianto, flew to a unique destination in the middle of the Makgadikgadi salt plains in Botswana. David shot two editorials for the May and June issues, one with model Lousie Herold and the other with Carmen Maria Hillestad.

Italian swim and beachwear manufacturer Calzedonia was in South Africa for the first time to shoot a 2008 summer catalogue with photographers Nico Bustos and David Burton. Styling was done by Italian Elle stylist Carola Bianchi, with hair & make-up by Augusto Picerni. Models Brigitte Swidrack, Elsa Hosk, Dominique Piek and Jeniffer Lamiraqui got their feet wet along Cape Town's beautiful white beaches.

Motorola was in Cape Town on the African-leg of its world tour, shooting the Middle East and Africa image campaign with renowned photographer Peggy Sirota. The enormous production was shot over a week, with the photographer's high-profile team including stylist Michael Nash and hair & make-up artist Johnny Hernandez.
