Luxury Kaftan dresses from Tangier, Morocco.


Fashion Photographer and filmmaker Ben Welsh was hired by Ziana California, a international Moroccan-California fashion brand, to portray there new collection. There speciality are hand made luxury designer kaftan dresses, embroidered with precious stones. This collection of kaftan´s can be described as: Absolutely beautiful !!!


Kaftan dresses are loose and free flowing, and normally reach down to the ankles. There have been many variations over the years. Styles are different, some are light and colorful, perfect for hot summer days while others are elegant and are ideal for many social meetings.


The client asked the photographer Ben Welsh to find two very important aspects for there fashion brand to stand out. 1º a incredible location and 2º a couple of beautiful spanish models.

With a wide knowledge of locations and talent in this part of Andalusia, Southern Spain, Ben found a true gem in the old town of Tarifa, El Castillo la Duquesa Tarifa. This location has a Arab feeling in some of the rooms and patios, which combined with the new collection of kaftan dresses was a perfect match as can be seen in this video.


The Spanish models, Maria Lopez Rodriguez and Noelia Montes were the chosen talent for this photoshoot, Maria is dark haired while Noelia is blond. Both fitted the kaftan dresses beautifully.

The photographer Ben Welsh decided to light the models with a cinematic look. Combing in many photos, strobe and continuos led lighting with a mixture of color temperature to gain a warm feeling.


For video he choose warm continuous led lamps, combined with V-log color profile in camera so in post production with Final Cut Pro X, he could color grade with greater latitude. A combination of tripod, gimbal, slider and hand held techniques were used to achieve different movements for the final video.


Ziana California also has a wedding dress design as can be seen in the photo below of Maria. Photographer Ben Welsh does wedding photography in Tarifa, Cadiz, Andalusia, Southern Spain.


The final results were very exciting for both photographer and client. Here is the clients review on Google;
