When I got the call that I’d be going to Costa Rica for a week to shoot for Eidon Life again, I was ecstatic. Central America is somewhere I’ve always wanted to go because of all the unique creatures (crocodiles, monkeys, and slows- just to name a few) and the warm, uncrowded waves. I was also excited to reunite with the crew that I had shot with last May in Jamaica.
I flew into San Jose Airport and then hopped in a taxi for a three hour drive south to Dominical. It was a beautiful drive amongst palm trees and bridges over rivers with crocodiles floating at the surface. It started pouring rain halfway to my destination, and I loved how refreshed it made me feel because it was sweltering in the car.
We had a house right on the beach, which was ideal because we spent most of the time shooting right outside. We’d wake up at 5 am and start shooting by 6am until around 10. Then we’d have a break until later on in the afternoon when the light got good again. That left me with a lot of free time, which I’d often spend surfing, napping or swimming in our pool.
Watch out for the campaign later this year!
