    Ghana is a perfect place for this shoot.The weather condition is pretty bright and sunny in the cocoa growing areas.My parents are cocoa farmers and I’m very familiar with all cocoa issues,from planting to harvesting etc.
    I have been sick for weeks and now recovering but my team is ready to go with you to west and east of Ghana for this projct.Getting to know your itenary will be fine.

    We have some great places in Venezuela. We just complete principal photography on a documentary “Cacao”. In different locations including Chuao a valley on the coast that has been the major producer of top quality Cacao for 100s of years. I have included some pictures done by production staff.
