BAKER KENT : DOROTHY PERKINS commercial by James Meakin and meet the South African production company in person at UPDATE!8BERLIN
Baker Kent is an international production company specializing in high-end photo and film campaigns for the fashion and advertising industries. Working out of Cape Town, South Africa, the team specializes in shoots across the African continent and Indian Ocean islands. With owners Rob and Scott both African-born and intrepid explorers, few of the continent’s location secrets remain personally unexplored by them, complete with an enviable black-book of local contacts and suppliers.

The duo also come loaded with international experience and heavy-weight collaborations, evident in the high standard of production services they provide. Rob worked in London for 11 years, 9 of which were spent working with Mario Testino and Art Partner. Scott owned and ran a photo agency and production company in Dubai during its boom. The Baker Kent team are seen as the ‘go to guys’ for adventurous shoots and are known for delivering high-end production services in the most trying and remote destinations. © // 1 file show complete blog

Super Happy! Thank you Phillip Lim and Viviane Sassen for another incredible shoot featuring Liya Kebede

For the Spring 2016 advertising campaign, we continued our collaboration with photographer, Viviane Sassen, creating artful, unexpected images that “romance reality” rather than escape from it. For the third consecutive season, we accomplished this with a minimal team - a photographer, an assistant, a producer, a model and Phillip Lim - on the streets of a global city shooting spontaneous, real moments.

This season, we pushed the boundaries even further by asking a world-renowned model to join us in this guerrilla affair; we asked her to do this in her home country with her actual family. The model is Liya Kebede and her home town is Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where she grew up with her four brothers and where her parents still live. Liya is also passionately devoted to her role as a maternal health advocate. We are enormously grateful to Liya and her family for being part of this special moment and welcoming us to their home
