Pre-Wedding shoot at uShaka Pier with Shandu and Angel

Shandu called me up and asked if we could do a pre-wedding shoot at sunrise so I checked the weather report and the only decent day would be that next morning so off we went.  The theory of a sunrise shoot is all very well but in reality it can be a really tricky shoot as was the case here.  Angel only started her makeup just before the sun popped over the horizon and then … [Read more...]

Pet & Family Photo Shoot in Studio

When Anna contacted me in November about this photo shoot, I knew we would be in for some fun. She had won an OD Media Gift Voucher and wanted to use it on a Family Photo Shoot. There was a small catch however... the family included 3 dogs. This was so exciting! I love photographing dogs! After some chatting, Anna and I decided that her 3 furry children (as well as her own … [Read more...]

TO Strand Holiday

Last week we headed down to TO Strand for the last of the school holidays and since all the other schools had already started, the park was quite empty.  This is one of the better caravan parks as the facilities are clean, the sites are awesome, the staff are friendly and helpful, and of course the beach is a stones throw away.  We had an amazing time with more highs than … [Read more...]

Garden inspiration on a rainy day

I get cabin fever very quickly so after two days of rain recently I was itching to do something.  Looking out of the dining room window I saw some regular visitors of the feathered kind and that got me excited to get the camera out and snap away.  Of course by the time I was ready and armed the birds had flown away but none the less I was still inspired.  The birds were … [Read more...]

Umhlanga Lagoon

Just after the new year started Mandy, the kids and I walked from Umhlanga to Umdloti along the beach.   We often walk along the beach to the Umhlanga lagoon and have always wanted to do the full walk so it was a good time to make that wish come true.  Along the way we came across a set of rocks that had been scoured out by some rough seas and that we had not seen before.  This … [Read more...]

Wedding at Providence with Dale and Hazel

I was excited to photograph this wedding after meeting with Dale and Hazel as their laughter, enthusiasm, honesty and down to earth nature was extremely infectious.  I had been photographing an event in Johannesburg for a few days and left there at 5:30am to head to Providence in the KZN Midlands.  Thankfully the roads weren't too busy and all the storms held off so I made good … [Read more...]

Dinner functions at 129 Lambert Road

What a location to have a dinner … [Read more...]

Sithembiso and Makhosazane chose the ideal venue to get married, Old Halliwell in the KZN Midlands.  It has everything from accommodation, a chapel on site, a beautiful reception venue and then of course picturesque settings to have the photoshoot done or for guests to relax in between formalities.  The weather on the Saturday ranged from overcast and rainy when I arrived, to … [Read more...]

Engagement shoot with Trevor and Kelly

We were all very excited when Kelly burst into the office one morning recently sporting enough bling to get any solar powered enthusiast excited.  I volunteered my services to do an engagement shoot so this Friday was the day.  Trevor brought along the apple of his eye, and Kelly of course, so there was a lot of love in the air.  I had chosen an out of the way venue which I … [Read more...]
