Mandevu Cottage | Falls Fish Farm | Destination Photography

Dam

For some reason I love to do indoor and destination photography. Maybe it’s the fact that travel is involved or that I have more time to get the shot right than for instance at a wedding. Either way, after my first visit to Falls Fish Farm in Schoemanskloof earlier this year Dee, the owner, invited […]

I was fortunate to help out as second shooter on Jeanette & Jacques’ wedding at Magnolia, Casterbridge in White River on 29 April 2016. It was a gorgeous autumn day in the Lowveld. While Nedine was with Jeanette getting dressed I took photos of Jacques getting dressed. The ceremony took place at the Methodist Church […]

Secret

I recently had the privilege and joy to shoot Lindi and Jaco’s wedding at Chestnut Country Lodge in the Kiepersol district close to Hazyview. It’s always exciting to discover new venues and Chestnut didn’t disappoint. For Hazyview it may not be unusual but it was a hot and sticky autumn day. The setting did lend […]

Days 4 & 5 – Jozini We left Mbabane at sunrise and headed south-east towards Jozini via Big Bend. When trying to buy a coffee in Manzini my smoking companion (with all due respect to him; not the “smoking hot” variety) got us thrown out at a petrol station. With panic in his eyes the […]

Reception

What’s better than driving the scenic route to Graskop? Shooting a wedding in Graskop. I know, sometimes it sucks loving your job. As mist swirled around in the mountains on my very early drive to Lola & Edwin’s morning wedding I counted my blessings for living in such a beautiful part of our country and […]

I got a call on short notice to do a wedding shoot in Secunda. The bride, Estelle, was understandably a bit distressed about having to go with another photographer so close to the wedding date but after reassuring her that she was in safe hands the details were confirmed and I was on my way […]

Maguga Dam

There comes a time when you need to hit the road. Hard. Take some time off. Escape from the slog of everyday life. Experience new scenery, company, food and more scenery. A road trip isn’t necessarily about where you’re going but more about just going. Anywhere. And with whom you are going. On short notice […]

To the east stretches the Lowveld and to the west the escarpment foothills in the Peebles area. The pinnacle is huge granite rocks and stands at 1194 meters.” – […]

Fairy Room

In Part 1 we had spent two nights in Schoemanskloof at the secluded Falls Fish Farm. Our plan was originally to go back home on Sunday morning. As we sipped our coffee on the veranda it dawned upon on us to be in truth an exceptionally silly plan. Maybe a walk to the edge of […]
