Q&A with "Raskal" 📸 Lensman For "Summertime Rolls" Campaign Shoot
We were honoured to have legendary lensman "Raskal" snap our SS17 campaign shoot Summertime Rolls !
After days of waiting for the November Bali rains to clear, the sun finally broke through the monsoonal clouds and the crew hit the road to one of Raskal's favourite secret locations, a stunning and secluded beach North of Canggu.
The sun shined, Bali smiled and the shoot went off like a dream!
We spent five minutes with Raskal to find out a little bit more about the legend behind the lens...

Born in Sweden Raised all over the place but mainly in Portugal and Sweden.
With family, friends, work at every corner of the globe, you are very much the travelling nomad, so where on earth do you call "home"?
