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 […]

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

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 […]

It’s hard to believe that another year has come and gone. What’s even more remarkable is that we’ve passed this decade’s halfway mark. 2015 has definitely been one crazy year. Terrorists stepped up their game with the Charlie Hebdo and Paris attacks as well as the downing of a Russian airliner over Egypt. A shocking […]

Engagement

Lola and Edwin were the lucky guinea pigs for my and their first ever engagement shoot. The venue was agreed upon and so we made the trip from Nelspruit to Kaapsehoop on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. It was a pleasant surprise to find out that they are, like myself,  both also musicians. With that in […]

Wedding, Blue gum trees, Flash

A fortnight ago I was privileged to do a wedding shoot for a dear friend of mine. It was an intimate reception at the unique Brasserie de Paris situated in Waterkloof Ridge. Architecturally the venue is a relic of the 70’s; stark and cold but the cuisine is divine. The couple’s photos were taken at […]

Swim, Gala, B&W

2015/10/07 Last weekend I attended the Mpumalanga School Trials Gala that was held at Van Riebeeck Park, Nelspruit. Swimming is quite an interesting and difficult subject to photograph. The water and subject constantly changes shape and position thus creating interesting reflections, splashes and light bends. Focusing is a challenge due to the swimmer’s continuous movement […]
