The Atlantis Resort & Casino in the Bahamas has been on my radar as a shoot destination since they opened. I’ve been visiting Nassau for years, seeing our friends and shooting in, around and under their crystal clear waters. I was thrilled to hear we were awarded the project to create a library of images of their water parks and attractions.   Creating artful libraries has become one of our fortes.  We often shoot under water and have become specialists at shooting lifestyle imagery around water, pools, and resorts as well as providing video and drone services as needed. You could say we create a 360° experience. Though it sounds somewhat glamorous, projects like this can be challenging and require a lot of forethought and specialized gear. We worked with an amazing producer and client that handled many of the important details. They coordinated talent and crew schedules getting us to the right place at the right time of day.   We’re very adaptable and have a lot of tricks and knowledge that we bring to the experience. We keep it light and fun and we shoot fast… so we don’t capture stale moments, but focus on authentic moments and having fun. We offer very strong support in post-production and retouching, We’ll often encounter a cloudy or rainy day that we transfix into a beautiful sunny experience. We don’t have the luxury of not shooting when we’re on a trip. We’re always shooting and there’s always a camera within reach. If you want real moments, you have to be willing to live in them, and I think that’s one of our strengths. We surpass client expectations and the challenges of returning from rainy days and challenging moments by loving what we do! We love our clients who allow us to bring our vision to their brands!    

While Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas was fortunate to have not been impacted by Hurricane Irma, the storm left devastation in her path across several family islands of The Bahamas. In service of the shared mission commitment made by Atlantis, to ensure a flourishing ecology and economy of the country, Atlantis has set forth multiple efforts to help support the rescue, regeneration and rebuilding of communities in Inagua, Ragged Island, Mayaguana, Acklins, Bimini and Grand Bahama. Atlantis will also use these efforts to support Red Cross efforts across the state of Florida, where many have been severely impacted.*

Atlantis Paradise Island has launched a fundraising campaign here on YouCaring. From now until October 31st, Atlantis will match all donations received dollar for dollar, with 100% of the proceeds going to The Bahamas Red Cross, and to the Red Cross efforts in Florida, up to $250,000.
