Vela runs large ads, covers with photos by Thorsten Indra


Shawna Cropas as the action model had to time her jumping just right when we shot some images during the spring JP photo shoot. With little time on hand and the wind being inconsistent, it was a challenge for both model and photographer to be positioned at the right place in the line-up of this wave-break with shifty peaks. Whitewater would need to serve as fill-light as well.

A watershot from this production at beautiful Spreckelsville Cove (Maui/ Hawaii) was chosen by Vela Windsurf Resorts for their ad-campaign and run in various windsurfing special interest magazines as ads, in both full- and double-page formats.

Another image from this production graced the cover of the 2011 Vela brochure.

The key-visual in the ad was accompanied by the claim "Best gear for the best vacation" and also promoted Shawna's windsurf-clinics. Vela is a premier travel provider, featuring JP windsurfing gear.
JP is one of the foremost brand in windsurfing and has been one of my long-term clients for all their brochure and ads.
