Huawei Joburg Day – 4 May 2019

Huawei Joburg Day in the Park ticked all the boxes for an unforgettable family day out. The sun was out, the grass was green, and there was lots of space for Joburg’s youngest – and oldest – movers and shakers to play. PLUS an entire day of live music from some of SA’s biggest multi-generational artists. Here’s what I saw…

Legends of Bollywood

For the very first time ever, 3 legends performed together on one stage. The power packed concert featured playback singers Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik and Kumar Sanu. Here are some my favourite images from the night also featuring Suraj Jewan, Khajal Ali, and Abdula Raheem. The event, held at Time Square in Pretoria featured some tricky lighting at points which kept me on my…

‘I only have eyes for you.’

I love big fat reflective sunglasses. Especially when worn in situations that allow me to get a little more of the story told in an image. Here a couple of wedding guests were sharing a laugh. I was more focused on their expressions and realised just in time that there was the possibility of getting her reflection in the shot….

Wedding – Sara & William

Wedding – Sara & William They don’t get much better than this! Sara and William’s day was everything and more that I feel a wedding should be. We had the love, that’s obvious, emotion, check, and then Sara, possibly the most excited bride ever! There were real tears… Real. Tears. It was beautiful, unguarded and sincere and I throughly enjoyed…

Wedding – Michelle & Matt

I met Michelle about a year ago at the Bokeh Fashion Film Festival where she was working in PR and Marketing. We got to talking and when the subject of her wedding came up I showed her my website and spoke about my unique, documentary approach to telling the story of a couples wedding day. We stayed in touch and…

Wedding – Jesse & Michelle

Where do I start? What a wedding! I’ve known Jesse and Michelle for a few years and have worked with them through their event company, Sync’d. Simply the most spectacular, dynamic and exciting event company I’ve worked with and indeed some of the most outstanding commercial events I’ve been asked to photograph. So of course being asked to document their…

Wedding – Carl & Marelize

I recently had the wonderful opportunity to second shoot with Anneli Young Photography. As second shooter I often hear other photographers (not the one’s I’m shooting with of course) say how easy it is to ‘second shoot’ as there’s no pressure on you as a photographer to capture certain moments. I couldn’t disagree more. You see, I approach second shooting…

Day in the life – Sjaan & Marné

You never know where your next client is going to come from, so I feel you should always be open to opportunities. Marné works at a chemist I frequent… Which sounds a little strange until you understand that as a 46 year old skateboarder I have a few aches and pains, new and old, that sometimes require special attention. I spotted Marné outside…

Johan is an experienced photographer and works at a specialist photography retail outlet. That in itself, with his experience and knowledge of photography, made it a real privilege to be asked…

A Day in the life… Carter.

I met Shanna and Pedro a few years back when I was given the wonderful opportunity to photograph their wedding on the west coast of South Africa. We hit it off straight away and had a wonderful time making some timeless photos. When Shanna was expecting we got them into studio to photograph her bump and then when Carter was…

The story behind this photograph

Johan and Isabelle’s wedding allowed me to make one of my most memorable and poignant documentary photographs I’ve ever taken on a wedding day. After their wedding ceremony there were canapés and drinks available to all the guests at the church. During this time the couple’s two remaining grandmothers sat down to rest while taking in the day’s excitement. I…
