Swimsuit by the numbers

A detailed look at what goes into a swimsuit shoot

Style, Travel

At SwimDaily, we’re often asked what goes on behind the scenes of a SI photo shoot. So with a 2014 shoot beginning this week, Janine Berey, the editorial coordinator for SI Swimsuit, let us film as she packed up the swimsuit closet for the trip. She also provided a detailed numerical breakdown of a shoot. Here’s what she came up with:

2 – boxes of jewelery
3 – trunks full of clothes
4 – extra large duffel bags
12 – members of crew (including four models)
20 – pairs of shoes
650 – total swimsuits
1,500 – dollars spent on oversized baggage charges
7,000 – total miles traveled to and from destination
