Sitting isolated in the Pacific Ocean, some 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, are the mysterious Galapagos. We chose these “Enchanted Islands” to host the 2013 Miss Reef Calendar shoot. For generations, this rich archipelago has been celebrated for what it has to teach us about the natural world — countless species in the wild, from the woodlands to sky and sea.
2013 marks the fourth installment of a five-year series shot entirely in Latin America, our effort to move back to the roots of the Reef brand. And the Galapagos, with their rich ecology, was the perfect place for the ladies to explore.
Our team was tasked with the assignment of capturing the true essence of the Galapagos juxtaposed with the Miss Reef sensuality. We feel they captured the best of San Cristobal’s pristine landscapes and charming villages. The 2013 Miss Reef Calendar is dedicated to the welcoming people of Ecuador, particularly the Galápagos and San Cristobal, for their warm hospitality and enthusiasm in collaboration on this project.
