Bagamoyo Tanzania


After we stopped by the orphanage the first morning in Tanzania, we took some of the cute kids along with us to participate in the model shoot that occupied the rest of our day. That day and the next were spent in the district of Bagamoyo where we did a fashion shoot for an upcoming issue of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine. Two models from South Africa were flown up and 6 gowns were designed specifically for use in the shoot by top designers Ines Di Santo, Amy Michelson, Adele Wechsler, Angel Sanchez and Jenny Packham. The models, gowns and location were all incredible and the 15 of us were all in photographer heaven shooting away with our long lenses so we could all "get the shot." I wish I could share some of the results from the model shoot with you, but I won't be able to blog any of those images until after the magazine comes out in January.

But during those two days I also grabbed a couple shots around Bagamoyo that caught my eye. Bagamoyo is a historic seaport in eastern Tanzania with a rich history. The town was formerly a slave-trading depot as well as the first capital of the German East Africa Company in the early 19th century.

These shots are just random ones that caught my eye but I hope you enjoy them nonetheless!
