WORLD SWIMSUIT BORNEO 2016 DIARY – DAY 3
Today we had a slightly later start as the weather hasn’t been playing along all to nicely. Nevertheless, the show must go on and we kicked things off with some hero shots for Mia Kang at the spa. As always, she was amazing both on and off camera.
Right after finishing up with her we headed to a beautiful room’s balcony to nail down some social media footage with World Swimsuit first-timer, Jessica Strother. From the first frame to the last she was an absolute joy, always up for some fun and often flashing her bright, infectious smile. She even took videographer Richard Hughes through a few yoga poses, which he performed admirably!
With that wrapped up we broke for lunch at our usual spot, the Fisherman’s Cove restaurant. Before heading off to tackle the second half of the day we squeezed in a few quick poolside shots with Jessica, also for social media.
Our second shoot location was the lush Gaya Island Resort jungle. Lead by Justin, the resort’s intrepid resident naturalist, we headed off with Mia. We shot at several locations and had to hike to each one, but Mia was a trooper, smiling all the way. Justin also made the going considerably easier, having carved an entire staircase into the side of a valley in just two days, to give us access to unique spot.
The day was topped off by a lovely dinner date with the even lovelier Jessica. The resort arranged an exclusive Sinagang Steamboat dinner, complete with a private butler/chef, and we dined overlooking the calm waters as the full moon rose.
