Viva Mexico

Viva Mexico

Doing a major shoot in Mexico has always been high on Petter's wish list. With its rich photographic history, colorful culture and probably some of the best locations in the world it isn't difficult to work out why Mexico would always be a dream destination for a shoot.

So on April the 16th Petter set off to Mexico for one of the biggest productions he has ever undertaken. Co-producing with Extremo Magazine, Mexico, they set out for a 10 day frenzy with 8 models and numerous locations planned in the south of Mexico, ending up in Mexico City. Little did Petter and his team know about the emerging swine-flu epidemic...

What was proving to be the greatest challenge beforehand was finding and casting local models. After several rounds of agencies, scouts, browsing online model communities and talking to local photographers etc, this seemed to be proving an almost hopeless search.

Due to strong religious reasons posing naked was simply a no-no for many models - sure there was some response, but the models did not meet our criteria. Finally we discovered two willing models based in Mexico City, who ironically enough both came from Argentina. The other models were flown in from the Ukraine, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Argentina. Those of you familiar with Hegre-Art will already recognize our dear models Anna S and Muriel.

Day One

Day One

I'm sitting in my beach hut in Tulum, Mexico browsing today's work on my computer. We have booked 10 huts at the hotel azulik: http://www.azulik.com/ for the models and the production team. This is a truly incredible location and the ultimate get away for newlyweds with strong 'primal' needs!

It is completely dark around me. The waves are practically rolling right underneath me and the wind is playing tunes with every little opening in my cabin. This place has no electricity, but I have been granted a single bulb and a socket to be able to charge my batteries. And even this gets shut down at midnight. After one day my gear is already filled with sand and the camera is sweating with humidity. Luckily I have two cameras with me just in case.

We arrived last night together with Anna S and a new girl, Brigi from Hungary. It was a long trip: Barcelona to Frankfurt, Frankfurt to Mexico City, Mexico City to Cancun and then an hour and half in a car to Tulum - but definitely worth it. The other models and the rest of the team arrived tonight and have just settled in.

As we were the first to arrive today, I did a 'warm-up' shoot with Anna S and Brigi. I started out on the terrace of my hut. A bed is suspended from the ceiling by 4 ropes, a perfect love nest. So I put Anna S and Brigi in the nest! Later we also documented a true Mayan massage with Brigi as the lucky model receiving an all-over pampering. In a tent on the beach she was oiled up, rubbed and bathed like a little baby! We ended the day on the beach with Anna S in familiar style posing in our all white American Apparel collection, picked especially for this production.

Stuffed with quesadillas, frijoles, guacamole with salsa picante and a couple of Coronas I know I will sleep well tonight!

Tomorrow the work begins. Full throttle.

Buenos Noches.

Day Two

Day Two

I had requested for all the models to be ready to shoot for the sunrise at 6:30, but when I showed up at the cliff top where we agreed to meet, there was no one there...then at 7:00 some tired faces showed up, complaining about jet lag and the crashing waves keeping them up all night. However a stunningly beautiful sunrise soon set the mood, and in no time 6 gorgeous models lined up in bikinis... these soon dropped to the ground!

The ice was broken. The group of girls worked well together and straight from the cliff we rigged the next session in the serene setting of the Azulik yoga studio. Six naked models performing yoga! The pregnant American instructor said she had never had such a class before. As you can imagine it was quite a view to see the bodies twisting and stretching... and of course we have it all on film and photos.

The final location of the day was a magical place discovered by our crazy driver Pablo. It was an outdoor cenote (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cenote), a secret treasure in Tulum, and quite simply an incredible location - crystal clear waters and spectacular surroundings. And for the first time I did some proper underwater photography. To film the models swimming naked under water surrounded by little fishes was magical… just like swimming with mermaids.

Every night the routine is to duplicate all the files made that day on to two discs and store them separately. One can never be cautious enough about this.

Tomorrow we must get up at 5:00 to go to Boca Paila Beach.

Day Three

Day Three

Another early morning. Up at 5 AM and heading for Bocapaila Beach, which is an incredible location; a peninsula, part of a nature reserve.

We set up a base between the palms, the two gay stylists oils up the models, and we do the white American Apparel shoot with all the girls. Only after were we told we were shooting in crocodile infested waters. So now I understood why the driver was set to overlook the shoot from the shore.

A whole lot of flesh was in that water...

After we returned to the base I continued shooting in and around the hotel, and as the sun was setting I jumped into the waves with my camera held high to capture some of the girls childishly splashing in the water.

But obviously I was not careful enough; my camera suddenly stopped functioning and I got a "communication error" displayed on my trusted Hassy.

I rushed back to my hut to replace it with my back up camera house, but I got the same message. We tried to dry it with a hair dryer, sucked on all openings through some tissue paper to get out any humidity, but nothing helped.

It was a desperate situation, we were on day 3 out of 8 and we had no camera, and we are in the jungle of Southern Mexico!

Luckily my colleague Santiago, who traveled with me from Barcelona, had local contacts after working for 5 years in Mexico City. He made some phone calls, and miraculously there was a Hasselblad H2 only a 3 hour drive from our location. Probably the only one in Southern Mexico!

So the next morning we have the replacement camera and the fiesta can continue.

Phew...

Day Four

Day Four

With the new camera rolling, we started up as usual with sunrise photos on the beach. From there we set up one of the key sessions of the trip: Muriel and Suzie going at each other!

These beach huts are made for lovemaking and Muriel and Suzie went as far as two models can without risking their health. Starting in bed, continuing in the tub and ending in the wooden outdoor Jacuzzi - it was an extremely hot and intimate session.

After this we packed up and went to probably the most incredible location of the whole trip; the ranch on Bacalar, a crystal clean green lake, with a pier taken from a Hollywood production, it was just amazing. Carefully I placed the 6 naked models on the pier, with a green infinity backdrop, and the sun creeping down, lighting the scene like a gigantic soft-box.

It was simply magic, and so must it have been for the landowner and his friends over looking the scene! The return of Eden, right in his back yard.

Day Five

Day Five

After working primarily on the beach for 4 days we headed to more urban areas. Playa del Carmen, a crazy little spring break town, is about an hour and a half drive from Tulum. There we checked in at Hotel Basico: http://www.hotelbasico.com/, a very cool designer hotel in the center of the town.

We started early on the roof top, Muriel in a blue transparent body, Suzie stretching her long body in the cabanas and Suzie Carina, in classic free diving gear, splashing in the circular tanks that had been turned into little pools. An occasional ‘early bird’ looking up from the street could get a glimpse of what was going on and waved enthusiastically!

Later we moved down to the corner suite with floor to ceiling glass windows and facing one of the busiest intersections in Playa del Carmen. And with the girls jumping naked in bed and hanging out by the windows it did not take long before the intersection came to a halt and huge crowds started cheering and taking in the view - and I don’t blame them. But it got so crazy, the hotel management, to the crowds’ disappointment, told us to close the blinds to avoid any scandal or accident happening...

By the end of the day we went scouting for a vintage motorbike to use as a prop for our last day in Tulum, and it did not take us long to find what the owner called his "horny bull." A 1996 soft tail with a bull's horn mounted in the front...

Another productive day in Mexico

Day Six

Day Six

Back in Hotel Azulik again we started the day on the beach with Brigi from Budapest. Nothing beats the sunrise for flattering bikini shots. The beach is empty this time of day and the morning light is just crisper and cooler than the, often too warm, sunset.

In the meantime the team had prepared my request to make a grand ‘beach picnic’ session. Six girls oiled up enjoying the good life on a nude beach. What a session it was! Ice cold Coronas, tropical fruits, flashy cameras, beach bags and beach towels were used to create the scene, and all the girls had to do was lay back and burn in the sun!

To cool them down afterwards I had them roll in the wet and cool sea and let the waves caress them.

It was Muriel's last day so in the evening I turned the yoga room into a studio. I stretched a white sheet on the wall, set up a couple of lamps, let the stylist and make up artist do their most playful creations and had a "fashion nudes" session. The Mexican buffet kept us going all night.

Tomorrow morning the fat Harley from Playa del Carmen is being brought up to us. This will be our last day in Tulum before we continue back to Mexico City for the final production day with two new Argentine models.

Day Seven

Day Seven

We are all stressed. The bike has not arrived... and the sun is creeping higher and higher. Finally we get hold of the person who was supposed to bring the bike up to us. He says the bike broke down and they are now looking for a truck to bring it. Finally they manage to stop a pick up passing by and bring the bike up.

We immediately head for our assigned location: the beach in the Sian-Kan Reserve, a spot we picked out several days ago for this shoot. We arrive and set it all up but it's 11 AM already and the sun is really too high to get the light I wanted. We decide to rig up some huge reflection screens, use the silver side to fill in the harsh sunlight and actually get some spectacular saturated results.

The macho Harley dudes that brought the bike go crazy with their mobile cams and it was not very surprising to us when this pirate clip showed up on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIUnRfJSjxk.

Working with cool cars and bikes together with hot girls is quite a generous process! The shapes and forms are so compatible together and the models always love to play around with these big toys.

Well, the production in Tulum has reached an end and it has not been without drama and only four hours of sleep per day. It has been a frenzy of hot naked girls with sticky skin playing in the sand, spicy Mexican food and absolutely stunning locations. Tomorrow morning we pack up and return to Mexico City to finalize the last day of shooting for this trip. And what a surprise we got when we arrived at Mexico airport.

Stay tuned till tomorrow.

Day Eight

Day Eight

Santiago, my traveling companion and I arrived in Mexico City unaware of the swine flu outbreak. Still in a Tulum paradise haze, I thought there were a suspicious amount of people wearing masks at the airport. Even the staff behind the car rental desk were wearing masks. As we took off in our jeep and cruised through Mexico City I asked Santiago, who was born and grew up here, why everyone was wearing masks? He answered convincingly; that I must not forget that Mexico City is one of the most polluted cities in the world. Little did he or I know, being isolated in a beach hut in the jungle for a week without TV and radio, so I did not think more of it.

We had rented a villa in the outskirts of Mexico City in an area called Jiutepec Morelos. On our way there we picked up some Profoto flashes at La Condesa Df and two beautiful Argentinean models named Flora and Ama. Due to the tough financial situation in Buenos Aires they had both moved to Mexico in search of better opportunities.

We arrived at our rental villa “Quinta la Maestra” late at night, unpacked our stuff and hit the sack.

“Quinta la Maestra” proved to be an excellent location with endless backdrops and settings - and the girls performed beautifully. It was Ama's first time posing nude and she easily fit into her role as the sensual muse. And Flora, being an ex-playboy model in Mexico, was simply a natural knock out, far from her typical artificially enhanced colleagues across the border to the north. As you can see from today's sneak previews these 2 models will win many hearts here on Hegre-art.com.

After sunset we packed up and headed back to Mexico City, spending our last night at the famous Bob Schalkwijk house - a photographic legend in Mexico. On our way my father called me and asked what precautions we were taking for the swine flu. My first reaction was: "what swine flu???!!!” And that was the moment we realized the epidemic were right in the middle of! So we rushed to Bob's house and our touristic activities for next morning were cancelled.

The flight back to Europe was a funny sight. Over 400 passengers and all personnel on the plane wearing masks, and with every sneeze or cough it sent a shiver through the crowd. And after I got back home I could not kiss my dear Luba for a week until it was clear that I did not have any symptoms.

Viva Mexico!

Hope you enjoyed the trip.

Petter

Comments

Best part of Hegre
Love seeing the videos of the models in "candid" settings - makes them so very human and normal! Also surprisingly erotic to see a woman acting naturally and unposed while unclothed. My favorite part of the site - please keep these videos coming!
Beautiful Work
Beautiful work Petter from a fellow Brooks Institute student . Your Locations Are Of Course The Best And Every Model Beautiful......... Tim
Anna S
Amazing shots, Gorgeous girls, Anna S is the best one amongst them, really "Anna S... a true angel living in her own dominions"
Ama+Flora
I love that picture of Ama and Flora on the table together. Did they do any sets or videos together?
photo imagination is very very nice.
Model for Herge
I would love to model for . herge-art!!! Beautiful work!!
nudity
I am still trying to figure out what this web site is about. It seems like you are trying to keep it from being a porno website by not going all the way, or are you trying to attract people who are photography buffs? I would like you to go just a little deeper, maybe like having a male role around the bed with the girl without having real sex. When you have two women have them really make love without a lot of posing like they are modeling. I guess what I am sayng is I want to get excited when I look at your website.

Seen all pictures and all movies up to day seven. Absolutely envy you Petter! But on the other hand, don´t envy you at all! Because it must be super human to stay calm and concentrated with all this female beauty around you. Especially when Anna is around!
response to jim
all photos will eventually be posted on hegre-art.com. ph
Where can I buy all the really super-hot photos that you don't post on your website?
Viva Mexico

Amazing scenery, awesome girls, but the best: Anna S... a true angel living in her own dominions )))

petter
petter you look hot on those pictures, I even have more pleasure looking at you than any of the girls
Anna S is most beautiful one, face, body, hair, ehhhh I would marry that girl
LOL who's the pooch?
oh no, old girls from czech republic
Petter, next time you come to Mexico head towards the northern states or los altos zone in eastern jalisco, those are the only parts in the country with beautiful native women (supermodels elsa benitez and liliana dominguez are from the north),elsewhere here just bring your own models, it will save you time and money.
When will the first update of this photo series?
Already I'm waiting eagerly to the first gallery of the most erotic photo series. Hope that we do not have to wait long, because the travel photos are very promising.
Loving it! Never thought I'd hear myself say this but how cool is it to see some great photos of the models with their clothes ON???!!
The underwater stuff looks like it is going to be amazing. Muriel looks stunning in this stunning choice of location.
film!!!! extraordinary
Peter, You've out done yourself on this one. I'm talking about your creative license with light, water and the most beautiful girls in the world. I think you're ready for a full length feature of sensual story telling.
Muriel
Everybody's gotta admit it... Muriel is so f***ing hot!!!!! for some reason all the Argentinans i've met personally are beautiful.
Muriel must be one fun loving girl; there she goes again, posing with a local, likely a memorable day for the little fella.
