Samoa celebrates in living colour!

To mark its Celebrate Samoa Year, Samoa Tourism Authority has launched its new look Samoa Image Library, with 500 new images celebrating everything that is Samoan.

With images by famed destination photographer David Kirkland, the image library captures the beauty of Samoa and her people.

The library (www.samoaimages.com) is a press only site and requires applicants to fill out a form to apply for log ins and access into the site.  It hosts a variety of images perfect for editorial and advertorial purposes and is available for downloading in hi res jpg and eps formats.  The images are also available for use to trade partners for marketing and information collateral such as brochures, EDMs, website destination pages and catalogues.

The image library documents the relaxed adventure activities available to all who visit Samoa such as swimming with turtles, exploring lava fields, the cultural experience to be had at Robert Louis Stevenson’s museum, the excitement of the Siva Afi (fire knife dancing) all in a backdrop of the stunning Samoan land and seascapes.

“David Kirkland manages to capture the true essence of the destination, its people and its culture. The colours, the smiles and the life in these images are pure magic” says Peter Sereno of Samoa Tourism Authority.

“We at Samoa Tourism Authority worked very closely with David in ensuring that the images shot are unique and easily identifiable as Samoan”.
