Aspiring models Daisy Boots and Robert Loydell had their entire portfolio shot around the islands of Mahe, Praslin, La Digue, and Silhouette. It is with this portfolio that they will now officially venture on the catwalk and enter the glossy world of high fashion.
Over the course of six days, the two models, accompanied by a professional photographer, hair and make-up stylist, and shoot coordinator, toured the islands and took pictures at some of the most picturesque places in Seychelles.
These included beaches, historical sites, and different hotels at and around Victoria.
The shoot coordinator, Simon D’Arcy Abbott, has described the shoot as another big success, saying Seychelles is indeed one of the most beautiful places on the planet and the picturesque landscapes and backgrounds presented amazing locations for shooting.
He added that he was amazed once again by the warmth of the people who they have come across or worked with.
“There’s a simplicity and tranquility about the islands which makes it perfect and ideal for such projects,” he said.
It is to be noted that this is the second year running that the winners of the competition headed to Seychelles for their photoshoot, and the organizers have again thanked the Seychelles Tourism Board for supporting them in making this happen.
Mr. Abbott said they would now like to give back to Seychelles for the wonderful times they have spent there and for according them the hospitality.
During their visit in Seychelles, the group also paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Tourism and Culture, Alain St.Ange, and Chief Executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board Ms. Sherin Naiken to formally thank them for supporting the photoshoot for two years and also to look at ways on how they can help in increasing the visibility of Seychelles on the UK market.
