World famous Instagram series “Follow Me” just reached Morocco.

For the last three years Russian couple Murad and Natalia Osmann have made us follow them all around the world (pun intended) through social media with their ground breaking travel series “Follow Me”. From the Jordan desert to Las Vegas, and recently from beautiful India, the couple embarked into a Moroccan adventure.

In what is known as the set of the epic movie “Gladiator”; the Ait Benhaddou village, the Osmanns shot their latest “Follow Me” photo for a National Geographic assignment.

After facing a few (usual) bumps in the road; as per the creative couple’s official Instagram account “We only had one day to do this shot for @natgeotravel . Racing through the Atlas Mountains to catch a sunset. I changed the outfit to a local costume and we were testing the angles when we were approached by two military men who prohibited us to shoot. We only needed 5 minutes, but they were impossible to persuade. That is why we had to wake up early in the morning and walk around this amazing town to get a location where no military men could see us”, they still were happy to have experienced the famous Moroccan hospitality, where “In between the shoots (they) were invited by a local woman, who poured us some tea, sold a carpet and told us that “Gladiator” movie was shot in that town and Russel Crow was sitting like us and drinking tea with her”.


Here are a couple of behind the scenes shots.

We went to Morocco to shoot a story for National Geographic Traveler @natgeotravel . In between the shoots we were invited by a local woman, who poured us some tea, sold a carpet and told us that “Gladiator” movie was shot in that town and Russel Crow was sitting like us and drinking tea with her 🙂 ………………………………………………………………Мы специально поехали в Марокко, чтобы сделать кадр для обложки National Geographic America @natgeotravel . Mежду кадрами, нас пригласила к себе в дом местная жительница: напоила чаем, продала ковер и рассказала, что в их городке снимали фильм “Гладиатор ” и Рассел Кроу сидел с ней, так же как и мы пил чай)

We only had one day to do this shot for @natgeotravel . Racing through the Atlas Mountains to catch a sunset.

That is why we had to wake up early in the morning and walk around this amazing town to get a location where no military men could see us :)…………………………………………………………………… У нас был всего день, для того, чтобы снять кадр #followmeto для National Geographic @natgeotravel . Мы долго ехали в горы Атлас, чтобы поймать закат в городе . Я переоделась в национальный костюм. И во время фото к нам подбежали военные и запретили фотографировать. Mы пытались им объяснить, что нам надо 5 минут, что солнце садится, что мы специально сюда ехали.. Все было напрасно. Но если одна дверь закрывается, то другая обязательно откроется. На следующий день, рано утром мы пересняли кадр в другом месте и получилось ещё лучше!!!
