Back in August, when the sun was still burning brightly in the sky, a quintet of Australasians took a trip from New York City to the magical adult playland of wealth, sand, surf and sweetly-scented sweat: The Hamptons. The group included male model Tom Bull, photographer Greg Lewis, Barkers General Manager Jamie Whiting, Creative Director Paul Biddle and yours truly in the styling, art direction, production, team morale, negotiations and comic relief department. We were there to shoot the campaign for Barkers' (one of New Zealand's largest menswear chains) Spring/Summer 2013 collection, following our freshman campaign for the brand's Fall/Winter 2012 season. Highlights included a day-long hiatus at the holiday mansion of one of the world's top video game CEOs, shooting on the Montauk cliffs, late night jacuzzis at the euphemistically named Hilton Garden Inn and Tom breaking the pedal off my beloved bicycle while attempting these stunts. Check out all the photos, plus a behind-the-scenes video shot by Mister Alexander Norton. We had to do it again, right?
