Media shoots on Harbour Island, Bahamas
Our combination of turquoise waters and quaint architecture draws film crews from around the world. Last month we had one crew shooting for Talbots clothing and another shooting the cover of Oprah’s new book.
Fashion shoots such as the one shown at right especially can’t resist posing by the driftwood tree in Girls Bank.
In the remaining photos you see a crew working to shoot a TV commercial for Target’s spring clothing line a few years back. When they used Mr. Saunders vegetable stand to film a sandal amidst his limes, locals got a laugh to see them change his sign to “Fruit and Veggies.” (Mr. Saunders has since changed it back to “Vegetables”).
If you caught the final commercial you saw a millisecond flash of a model leaning against a shutter of the old Briland Bakery down by the fishermen’s pier.
If you drop by the Vic Hum club, ask proprietor “Hitler” Percentie to show you his collection of magazine ads taken on the island. And if you need to book a shoot, talk to Dake Gonzalez over at Island Services.
