7 Seas Productions : HERMES SAYS TAKE ME TO CUBA - Photographer and Director Jack Davison realized the Hermès S/S '18 campaign with the producer team from Christian Bengsch in Cuba

For over 19 years, the crew at Take Me To Cuba has been aptly doing just that, taking clients to Cuba and getting “the shot”. Take Me To Cuba is the localized arm of the international 7 Seas Productions team who have been running a well-oiled operation and specializing in fashion campaign and editorial productions. As you can imagine, there are a few customs and visa processes to consider when traveling into Havana so it's always a benefit having a team on-the-ground who speak “Cuban”.

Most recently, the TMTC team was asked to manage all local production needs for the latest S/S '18 Hermès campaign, in a co-production with Blue Sand - Paris. Not a bad call to receive one Monday morning. In total, the crew count reached just under 40 for the shoot, and it was spread across multiple locations in Havana throughout the week. British sensation, Jack Davison, was the man behind the lens on this shoot.
