Last summer one of Streetfashion MagZZine's photographers did an editorial shooting for ACQUO boots of Sweden with Swedish topmodel Jasmine Sjöberg Sidibe and Streetfashion MagZZine featured one of the pictures from the shoot as cover picture for September 2016. Last week we met Jasmine again for an ACQUO winter shoot at a local beach close to Gothenburg in Sweden.
“Last year’s shooting took place in Marstrand, a small Swedish sailors’ Mecca close to Gothenburg. This year, we chose a more remote location to show the variety of occasions the boots can be worn to.”, photographer Helmut Jeels explained while making his way through high grass and over a rock-covered and icy beach.
Jasmine, who, as an experienced and professional model, is used to extreme conditions during shootings, laughed the cold away. “It is minus 5 degrees today, which is almost mild for Swedish winter. I am really happy though that the boots are over-knee’s, so my legs stay warm.”
Shooting under extreme conditions, such as minus degrees or burning heat, always presents a challenge to everyone from model and photographer to the rest of the crew. While the models might be freezing in a dress standing on slippery or wet ground, photographer and crew must deal with cold-related issues such as reduced battery life of cameras or keeping their equipment safe from rain or snowfall.
