Commercial photography – Ancient Spirit clothing

Ancient Spirit is a boutique clothing store in Riebeeck Kasteel in the Swartland Here is some images I did for their new Winter range. For the ladies out there, these clothing items are simply gorgeous and at a great price as well. Look them up and give them a contact.

Actor Head shots – Liaan

This was the second shoot myself and Liaan did together. When he contacted me for a booking to shoot some new Actor Head shots for his portfolio, I had to jump at it. I love shooting portraits and Liaan is amazing to work with. We shot in my studio one morning and we nailed some amazing images. Keep an eye out for Liaan, you might just see him in one of the new block buster films out one of these days.

Model Beach Shoot – Wilmarie

Wilmarie works in Dubai and was in Cape Town recently on holiday. We have been chatting for some time already about the Model Beach shoot that she wanted to do. So we finally did it when she was here in early June. Thank goodness it was not that cold that day. We shot at the stunning Clifton and because it was cloudy, we had the whole beach to ourselves. Let me know what you think of the images and please feel free to share.

Model Shoot – Ballerina, Simone

This was my third model shoot with the stunning Simone Botha. She is a professional ballerina from Cape Town and she is also fantastic in front of the camera. So when I had some time to kill before a recent shoot in Cape Town, I asked her if she was available, and she was! With her hectic schedule of films and theatre productions we just had to do this shoot right there and then. We tried to add a bit of her ballet with a more fashion. sexy feel, and I think we did awesome. Well have a look and decide for yourself.  

Engagement Photography – Tinus & Michelle

As murphy would have it, photoshoots don't always go to plan! For the engagement photography session that we planned, we wanted to do some landscape panoramic images over the Slanghoek Valley in Rawsonville. We had a sunlight mountain in mind in the background, but...The morning of the shoot was some of the thickest fog I have ever seen in our valley. As I always say, roll with the punches! I honestly think that the job description next to the profession of photographer in the dictionary MUST be A Problem Solver because that is what we do 90% of the time. Well, we got some amazing shots in the fog, it just adds another element to the images, one tat you dont see often. Let me know what you think, and feel free to share.

Fitness Photoshoot – Carla Beukes

Carla and Myself did this Fitness Photoshoot only days before she left for the Arnold Classic that was held in Johannesburg. She was in tip-top shape and we created some awesome images. Please feel free to leave a comment or a share.  

Family Shoot – Mc Donald Girls

I was booked by Jeanine for this Family Shoot. They were in Cape Town for a short break, just the Mom and two daughters. It was a surprise for their mom. We did the shoot late afternoon on Clifton beach in Cape Town. Man, it was one of those perfect autumn days with warm weather and not a breath of wind. We had some of the most amazing light ever and that made the images even better. After lots of laughs that afternoon we all headed home. Please feel free to share with friends.

Matric Farewell shoot – Rugen & Tiffany

It's that time of the year again where it's one Matric farewell shoot after the other. Here is one I did in May for the stunning Rugen and the even more stunning, Tiffany from Bree Rivier High. Please feel free to comment and share.

Brinksfontein Guestfarm Moordernaars Karoo

I was asked by Rae from the Brinksfontein Guestfarm, in the Moordernaars Karoo, to come and shoot the farm and the guesthouse for them. I doesn't take much convincing for me to go to the Karoo for 3 days. So off we went, the family with as well for this trip. We were treated by Rae for 3 days and to say that my little girl Emily enjoyed it, is an understatement! She still talks about it now nearly 2 months later. The farm is situated about 60km from Laingsburg in the Karoo. This area is pretty desolate and with the recent droughts in South Africa, it's even dryer than usual. But one thing about the Karoo is the time, here you can literally feel the time stand still. We also planned this trip to coincide with new moon, so we could capture the best of the Karoo night skies, and man was that amazing. For anyone living in a decent size town, you will know that you hardly get to see the milky way at night, here it felt like you could really touch it, it's amazing! We were also treated to a show by a pair of nesting Black/Verreaux's Eagles. They can be spotted early morning or late afternoon, from the porch of Brinksfontein! There isn't many places where you can do that! Well here is some images from the trip and the venue, please feel free to share or contact Rae via the linked text up above.

Fitness Model Shoot – Mischka

With the winter season being the season for the fitness industry's main competitions, there is plenty of fitness athletes that want to shoot as they are at the peak of the game. Mischka wanted to do a fitness model shoot and so we did. It took a bit of planning, as it does when you want to do it right. We shot an afternoon here in my home town of Worcester at a couple of locations. Here is just a small selection from this awesome shoot. Please feel free to share.
