•4, October 2014 • Leave a Comment

I was very fortunate to be allowed to photograph this wonderful young couple.

Sharnelle and Mickey had their Matric Dance tonight, they got dressed at a beautiful local Gauteng guest house: De Zoete Rust.

In international speak that would be Prom Night 😉

Here are a couple of my favorites from the day:

I finally got some time to test my new Softbox!!

80 x 80cm 32 inch Quick Setup Easy Open Softbox for Bowens Type Strobe Light

 

New 80 x 80cm 32 inch Quick Setup Easy Open Softbox for Bowens Type Strobe Light E0242A80

The large size of the softbox makes for realy soft light that wraps beautifully around the subject. It folds up in seconds (like a windscreen reflector)  and is really a convenient size when tucked away in its pouch.

My recent shoot with Nikita! For this shoot we re-visited Johannesburg Botanical Gardens. During my previous shoot, I had no problem shooting there, but this time round I was told that I need to make arrangements to shoot at this location. Duly noted haha!

Hillbrow Shoot

•6, July 2014 • Leave a Comment

I recently had the oppertunity to work on set for the new movie Dora’s Peace made by Kosta Kalarytis.

Unfortunatly I can’t show you the stills I took, as the movie hasn’t been released yet. While I was on set waiting for scene changes, I had some time to do a bit of street photography and I must say it was amazing to be in Hillbrow and be able to see how much it has changed from my rears as a teen when we used to go clubbing there.

It certainly isn’t a safe environment, but the amazing thing is to see how orinary people, very poor people, liuve and survive under very trying conditions where crime, drugs and prostitution is so rife.

Occasions like these really ground me and make me thankfull for all the small an large blessings in my life.

Here are a couple of shots I took during my time on set.
I hope you enjoy!

Leanne and Chris’ engagement shoot

•14, April 2014 • Leave a Comment

I always have so much fun doing shoots like these! A beautiful couple that clearly love each other very much, a stunning location at Pretoria Botanical Gardens and a stunning day! Whats not to love.

For this shoot I Used a Canon 7D coupled with a Tamron 17-50 lens. For a bit of extra lighting I used a YongNuo flash to fill the shadows.

Here are a couple of images from the shoot:

Pretoria Botanical Gardens with Cheryl

•10, February 2014 • Leave a Comment

Here are a couple of my favorites from my shoot with Cheryl at the Pretoria Botanical Gardens.

It was a scorcher of a day, but Cheryl was a real trooper and didn’t complain once, even though the shoot involved a fair bit of walking in extreme heat.

Thanks for your hard work and great attitude Cheryl!
