THE ROAD TRIP

Our latest video and campaign shoot us from the central highlands of Vietnam, through the expansive sand dunes of Mui Ne right down to the depths of the Saigon River.

It has to be said that the open road is where one can get a real flavor for a country and our epic journey did not disappoint. Loaded with our EH bags and photography equipment, the team left Saigon at dawn and hit the road.

It came as no surprise to me that the boys from Rice (our creative team) insisted on some seriously cool props for the shoot – an old school jeep, a vintage Russian Minsk and some badass quad bike to capture all this action (or was it to practice doing dugouts in the sand?!)

The ‘Refined Traveler’ had to travel in style of course, and admittedly it wasn’t a bad day in the office when it comprised of canyons, waterfalls, sand dunes and a few epic sunsets thrown in the mix.

Josh, Chi An and Neil giving Nico a run for his money 

Let me introduce Neil our photographer who used to shoot for the legendary Face magazine and now lives out here in Vietnam having set up ‘Sirius’ his own production company. He’s an avid Arsenal fan – you can take the man away from the emirates but you can’t take the emirates away from the man! Anyway if goals were being scored in the photography stakes we reckon he’d be champion. …. lying out the back of a van to capture that sunrise bike ride while the rest of the team held onto his ankles was pure dedication.

From mountains to dunes Neil and his trusted camera were always a snap away
