BTS ON ZULU & ZEPHYR’S ‘RANGER’ CAM­PAIGN SHOOT

Collective Hub - - / FASHION - IDEA: LO­CA­TION: PHO­TOG­RA­PHY: CON­CEPT: AN­I­MALS: HIC­CUPS: SUR­PRIS­ING MO­MENT: OUT­COME:

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!”
