Both the models and I have recorded A LOT of behind the scenes material during the almost 4 weeks we have been on the road. Most of this will be uploaded to Vimeo password protected in raw form so you can see whats going on behind the scenes. You can see how I shoot and direct models, some of the spectacular hikes and places, and some of the more tense moments of the trip. You will get an idea about the road and terrain you will navigate if you ever want to go to these places.
