Grupo La Zagaleta

Marbella, Spain


Zagaleta is one of the most exclusive resorts in all of Europe, a unique retreat that’s home to some of the world’s wealthiest individuals. Zagaleta contacted us to capture in an artistic fashion the remarkable natural beauty of this residential golf estate for their branded magazine.


Having photographed this estate from the time it was Khashoggi‘s private home through its launch and establishment as a premiere luxury resort, I was thrilled to once again collaborate with them for this important feature. Shot over the winter, we originally selected weather conditions and time frames that would enhance the artistic elements of this nature reserve. Halfway through the production, the client required a shift to a more commercial “blue sky” interpretation, to which we readjusted accordingly.


The results were featured both on the cover and the main 22 page editorial feature inside their annual branded magazine, with a future planned exhibition of the fine art imagery to be hosted in the exclusive clubhouse.


“Wayne Chasan’s relationship with La Zagaleta is very special; from their very beginnings both have been intricately connected. He was the original photographer in charge of creating our imagery from the initial development of the resort up until it was established as one of the most important luxury residential golf resorts in Europe. We continue to collaborate with Wayne on special projects, such as the recent “Nature at your Doorstep” photography feature that graced both the cover and 22 pages of our prestigious Zagaleta Magazine, and the creation of the new iconic images of the golf course that will be on permanent exhibition in the Zagaleta Clubhouse.”
