If you have a tight budget, (well that means thumbs down travel) and determined to shoot an Amazonian rainforest theme, what do you do?
Well I kept asking myself many times driving around Dubai city for days figuring out how I will execute this task!
Dubai has neither that type of climate nor the rainforest we needed. Until I found the perfect location;
Believe it or not it turned out to be the ground floor lobby of Grand Hyatt hotel in Dubai.
After several trial runs, with the help of the amazing team and the maverick Hussain Jian we were able to keep the glamour of the evening wear and crystal body make up in what appeared to be an exotic place. The photo release in 2005 was so original kept the audience guessing what a treat she had. It turned out to be the most demanding of them all but I wouldn't become out of the box thinker, had I.
