Maternity shoot at Durban Beachfront with Imraan & Alison

I photographed Imraan and Alison's wedding a few years ago and then very recently Alison's sister Candice's wedding so this should have been an easy, relaxed shoot.  It started with Alison being extremely apprehensive, which is understandable when you are almost due with your first child, so things were a little awkward at first.  Thankfully Candice had joined us and brought a … [Read more...]

Beach Villa in Port Edward

When David contacted me about photographing his Villa at The Estuary in Port Edward, I was instantly excited about the shoot. I could not wait to drive down to the Lower South Coast and photograph this villa. After some planning with the team looking after the villas at The Estuary, I was able to pop in to collect the keys and have a look at the villa so that I could do some … [Read more...]

Diner en Blanc Johannesburg

On Saturday I flew up to Johannesburg to photograph the Diner en Blanc event.  I missed last years event as I was busy so I was excited to be available to attend and cover this year's event.  As usual none of the guests knew where the event was taking place and they just knew where they had to catch the bus from in the city.  They also had to be dressed in white, bring their … [Read more...]

On holiday at The Bend and Cranford Country Lodge

A few weeks ago I had some work to do at Cranford Country Lodge so we made a holiday of it and spent a couple of days in the Midlands at The Bend and then Cranford.  I have fond memories of The Bend and look forward to returning there each time.  Nothing has changed as you feel so welcome and at home there.  There are plenty of walks to go on and things to see so I had to snap … [Read more...]

Durban City looking Oh So Pretty

I really was enjoying my sleep this morning until the alarm went off and shattered my dreams.  I left home but by the time I got to the beachfront I thought that I was too late so I ran as fast as I could along the soft sand(good for the calves) to where I was hoping to take photographs of the city from.  Unfortunately steel fences and barbed wire halted my progress so I had to … [Read more...]

Model Portfolio shoot with Chane

Chane asked us last week if we could please get together to do a model portfolio shoot at one of Umhlanga's beachs.  Unfortunately we picked one of the most humid afternoons which caused havoc with Chane's hair and makeup.  We were both doing our best to beat the conditions and thankfully Chane just got on with things and did her best.  I was very impressed with her attitude as … [Read more...]

High Rocks Beach House

Julian asked me if I could come photograph High Rocks Beach House and of course I said yes as that is my old stomping ground where I grew up and spent more time at the beach there than anywhere else.  We planned it so that I could photograph a sunset and then the sunrise the following day and wow, did we get lucky.  We sat on his deck and watched the full moon rising over the … [Read more...]

Penwarn Country Lodge

I , along with my family, were invited back to Penwarn Country Lodge recently after photographing a wedding(view wedding Blog here) there two months ago.  I was asked to photograph the beautiful place as they are busy updating their website and marketing pics and I could not say no.  It is the most beautiful place to visit with an abundance of horses(over 700), the bird life … [Read more...]

GetFit Challenge Finalist Martin McCrory

This was one of those shoots where I was quite happy to be taking the photos and not the one doing the hard work.  After seeing Martin McCrory in action I have realized why he is always the one catching the most waves when out surfing.  He is one of those people who if you don't walk away after being in his company smiling and feeling positive about life then you never will.  … [Read more...]

Nkumbe Wildlife Estate at Ponta Malongane Mozambique

Graham asked me last year to go up and photograph their estate, Nkumbe Wildlife Estate, up at Ponta Malongane in Mozambique and of course I said yes.  I wasn't too sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised by pretty much every experience.  The estate is quite amazing with it's natural vegetation and beautiful houses that seem to blend into the surrounding trees and … [Read more...]
