Big Dog Abroad

November 28 @ 8:00 am - December 5 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0


Lanzarote 28th November to 5th December

How would you like to shoot in locations that are offered to only a select few?
How would you like to shoot on black sandy beaches ??
How would you like to shoot a styled and themed editorial shoot in the middle of a lava field and the caldera of an old volcano ?
How would you like to create images with a beached freighter sat in the bay as a back drop ?
How would you like to stay in a beautiful villa, most rooms being En Suite ?
I know the answer must be EVERYBODY because I'm desperate to do it all !!!
