I’m so happy to share this project that I was a part of together with some amazing Scottish creatives. Claire Marie is talented in so many ways! She is not only a beautiful model but she is also a singer/songwriter. The purpose of our trip to Skye was to shoot a music video for one of her songs. Steven was our videographer and drone operator. He is such a talented guy, it was wonderful to watch him work! Lorna was our designer. She created gorgeous tweed and tartan outfits for Claire. Finally, I was there to shoot an editorial.
To me it was more than a creative escape: it was a trip with my friends. I will never forget listening to Scottish folk music in a tiny local pub where I’m not sure a Russian foot had ever set in before. I will never forget sleeping in a van and Claire teaching me to yodel while Steven was trying to sleep. I will never forget how we cleaned our teeth at gas stations and how Steven made coffee in the woods. Listening to Fleetwood Mac and Ukrainean band Onuka, and that damn gorgeous synthwave saxophone of the Midnight. I felt like home, may be for the first time since I moved to Scotland. And for that I will always be grateful!
Here’s my vlog from our trip followed by the pictures we got. Make yourself comfortable and enjoy!
