The Next Women: Startup Diaries June 12 2013, 0 Comments

I quit my job and bought a one-way ticket to Spain with a ‘6 month’ stopover in South America in September 2010. I never made it to Spain. Instead, 8 months later, I ended up in the highland jungles of Guatemala. It’s a country in Central America that I wouldn’t have found on a map prior to leaving Australia.

Athinaeum is proud to unveil to the masses this Summer with the Genesis 20.13 photoshoot starring sublime Australian actor Gemma Pranita as a "futuristic-indigenous, warrior-princess".

The shoot was beautifully photographed and filmed by the talented Kate Reeves and Graeme Robertson of The Story of Us in Sydney Australia. 

The results are a divine culmination of our wildest exotic dreams. And Gemma is just plain hot. Feast your eyes and be seduced. 

Special thanks to Chloe Langford (Makeup), Patrick Casey (Hair) and my brother Nonda who assisted through the day. 

Check out the shoot here
