RACE AROUND SAMOA – SHOOTING THE COUNTRY’S HIGHLIGHTS IN JUST 10 DAYS

I’ve just returned from a 10 day assignment for Pacific Island Living Magazine. The Brief: Write a travel story about Samoa and photograph the country’s tourist attractions across its two main islands – Upolu and Savaii. And include some food shots.

Thankfully, I’ve photographed Samoa several times for its national tourism authority and a few of its resorts so I had a fair idea of where to start, and the weather was perfect so it was a pleasurable and productive shoot resulting in about 300 gigabytes of photos (of which – as is usually the case – only about 400 of the best photos will see the light of day).

Here’s a small sample of some of the pics that made the cut:
