"2018 is off to a great start for 7 Seas Productions, and we hope you are experiencing the same. They are already underway preparing for the next shoot in Cartagena, Colombia in the coming weeks. Right now, clients are looking for somewhere warm, sunny and exotic to shoot their SS18 campaigns. Our recommendation? Colombia! The New York Times just announced Colombia made the number two spot in the ’52 Places to Go in 2018’ list.
“Colombia is eager to become the adventurous, cosmopolitan hot spot it deserves to be.”
The New York Times
It’s true, the entire country is opening up. Take it from us! 7 Seas Productions have been taking clients to Colombia since 2002 and this impossibly beautiful place is expanding in every way like we have never seen. There is an abundance on offer in this country from Cartagena’s colonial city, to its grand interiors and the nearby beaches and waterfront villas, all the way to the tropical rainforests of Santa Marta. Ample turquoise waters, endless stretches of idyllic beaches, magnificent mansions and year-round sunshine are all available here.
7 Seas Productions took Bonprix to Cartagena to shoot one of their summer campaigns and the results showcase some of the very best backdrops available in Cartagena. Holger Friedrich photographed five models across a series of locations in what looks like a very fun shoot. The local production crew is a natural extension of their international team, ensuring every need is catered to during the production from start to finish.

In southern France, the team from 7 Seas Productions had the honor of supporting two productions, which they present us on GoSee: “7 Seas Productions were recently in Nice, France for a big production with American women’s clothing company CABI. They hunted high and low for extra beautiful locations, including the Nice Lawn Tennis Club and a sailing vessel called the Mojo II. Matador Productions came with two producers, owner-producer Tracy Gosein and second producer Miles Godwin. With such a big team and lots to do, thankfully host Becky Jantzen was on hand to give fashion and outfit advice throughout the production. The story was captured by funny and charming photographer Mark Andrew.
The next production 7 Seas carried out was for Germany’s #1 jewelry brand Wellendorff. Located on the famously glamorous French Riviera, the story was inspired by the ‘reveries of a day by the sea’ and showcases their newest collection of jewelry creations. Photographs by Yvonne Schmedemann, styled by Christiane Graf, hair & make-up by Nini Nielson."
