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 […]

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 […]

Fig tree, cirrus clouds, amazing sky

There are few things as depressing as a blue sky for a photographer . Where I live in the Lowveld the scenery is above average, but unfortunately the climate lends itself to maybe 100 cloudy days per year. So when I woke up this morning and saw cirrus clouds streaking across a deep blue sky […]
