Adrift Visuals had the pleasure of working with The Salt Sisterhood, a women's retreat company founded by Lauren and Patrick, on a summer 2022 shoot around the beautiful coastal area of South Cornwall. With varying shoot dates planned around the unpredictable Cornish weather, the Adrift team was excited to capture the essence of Salt Sisterhood's retreats and their stunning swimwear line, which comes in a classic teal blue.
The shoot took place in the picturesque village of Helford, a hidden gem nestled on the banks of the Helford River. With its sheltered waters and surrounding countryside, Helford is a perfect location for ocean and outdoor enthusiasts. It's no wonder Salt Sisterhood has chosen this area as their base for women's retreats. The Adrift team enjoyed exploring the village and capturing its beauty on camera, showcasing the unique geography and natural features of the area.
Adrift Visuals took on all the pre and post-production work for the Salt Sisterhood shoot, creating a series of stunning images and videos that perfectly capture the essence of the brand. One of the highlights was the hero video, which seamlessly brings together all aspects of ocean culture, with a big emphasis on soundscaping. The team used their extensive knowledge and experience to create a visually stunning video that transports the viewer to the Cornish coast.
During the shoot, the Adrift team got to work with an amazing group of women who shared a strong love for wild swimming. They were able to capture the benefits of ocean swimming, wild swimming, and cold water immersion for the body and mental health, highlighting the importance of self-care and mindfulness.
The team used underwater camera housings to achieve some shots, one of their most challenging but favourite practices when filming. The result was some truly incredible footage that captures the beauty of the ocean in a way that is both exhilarating and calming.
Salt Sisterhood is more than just a women's retreat company. It's a brand that believes in empowering women to reconnect with themselves and the environment through the ocean, yoga, and mindfulness. The Salt Sisterhood swimwear line is not just beautiful, it's also designed with sustainability in mind, made from recycled materials to help reduce the impact on the environment. The Adrift team was proud to work with such a brand and bring their values and message to life through stunning visual content.
In conclusion, the Adrift team had an amazing time shooting with Salt Sisterhood and capturing the beauty of South Cornwall, particularly the stunning village of Helford. The team's expertise in pre and post-production work allowed them to create visually stunning content that perfectly captures the essence of the Salt Sisterhood brand. From underwater shots to beautiful outdoor scenery, the Adrift team's work showcases the power of visual storytelling and how it can transport viewers to another world.
