The Oceano Beach hotel in Mijas Costa was an ideal photographic location under a perfect blue sky and the Sono nightclub in Fuengirola provided an excellent backdrop for an evening photo session.

Aylar Lie starred in Basshunters’s last video ” Now You’re Gone ” as well as this new sequel video, shot in Spain. Aylar was born in Iran in 1984 and moved to Norway at the age of three. She is one of the most popular figures in Norwegian media.
Aylar commented to Michelle that she isn’t really accustomed to being photographed by a female photopgrapher and she felt “very comfortable and relaxed”.
The Sono nightclub made a perfect location for the shoot with its colorful geometric lighting panels on the main walls behind the DJ and under the floor. The 35 strong crew directed by Alex Herron, included a full production team, camera, secondary camera, stills, lighting, electricians, stylists, make up, models, actors, extras and many more.
