By Eksteen | May 10, 2016 | Comments Off on Road trip 2016 | Jozini | Part II

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 […]

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 […]

Black and white

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 […]

This past Sunday morning I had the pleasure of hiking up the iconic Legogote. “The Legogote mountain is an impressive landmark between Hazyview and White River. 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 […]

Falls Fish Farm

Driving out to Falls Fish Farm in Schoemanskloof on a late Friday afternoon it amazes me how many amazing outdoor spots there are close to White River, the town I live in. All along the Crocodile River valley you can tube raft, fish, cave, hike, mountain bike and scramble to your heart’s content. Just keep […]

Falls Fish Farm | Cottage | Destination

By Eksteen | Feb 23, 2016 | Comments Off on Falls Fish Farm | Cottage | Destination

A friend recently asked me whether I’d be interested to barter. Her proposal was for me to take photos of a cottage at Falls Fish Farm (which she does the marketing for) in exchange for a weekend at the said cottage. I couldn’t find a problem with taking photos and traveling to a new destination […]

Slideshow | Wedding portfolio

By Eksteen | Feb 11, 2016 | Comments Off on Slideshow | Wedding portfolio

A quick one today. Apparently photographers can be on Youtube as well. So I took the time to compile a slideshow in Powerpoint of my best work to date and convert it to a MP4 file. It seems rather simple but for some reason it never is when I attempt these exercises. I won’t bore […]
