BTS ON ZULU & ZEPHYR’S ‘RANGER’ CAMPAIGN SHOOT
A Tanzanian-themed landscape with lions and elephants, inspired by a trip to Africa.
Just outside Sydney.
Shot on film by fashion photographer Akila Berjaoui. “Akila was really in touch with the female form and the beautiful feel of the nature and landscape,” say Candice and Karla.
“Beautiful dusty, earthy tones; a beautiful feminine feel.”
“They were previously housed in different industries but they come out to a beautiful sanctuary to live out the rest of their days and just have a good life.”
Nil! “A lot of people thought we were taking a bit of a risk mixing fashion and wildlife.”
“Our model [Shannikah Doherty] was really confident with the lion, which was surprising because he was so large and powerful. She was so easy, breezy with him, handling everything really well with absolute ease and confidence and calmness. Then he really noticed her and he lifted his paw up and placed it down on her back. It was a little bit too close for comfort!”
“It was a huge adrenaline project and a dream come true to work with these beautiful, majestic animals who, in real life, are even more striking and powerful than you could ever imagine. That’s a great day at work!”
