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.

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.

Commercial photography – Food photography

I needed to update my portfolio with some food photography. This is an area in photography that is rapidly expanding and to be able to shoot great food photos is not as easy. To leave the viewer wanting to eat that right away can sometimes be a challenge. So collaborated with an awesome local chef to get some awesome new images for my portfolio and also for his. PJ is the head chef at the Opstal Wine Estate just outside Worcester in the Slanghoek valley. Have a look and tell me you are not hungry now!

Commercial photography – Deetlefs Wine Estate MCC

I was commissioned by Deetlefs Wine Estate to shoot the new campaign for their MCC Champagne. We had loads of fun with this and to see the final image and product come together was just awesome. Some long hours behind the editing machine but it was worth every second. Have a look and tell me you don't want to have a glass of bubbly right now.  

Hyundai Worcester Dealership – Commercial Photography

At the end of 2015, I was commissioned by the Hyundai Worcester dealership to capture their stunning dealership for their new website and online marketing campaign. Commercial photography like this has always been a major part of why I got into photography. There is simply no better compliment for any photographer to have a major brand ask you to photograph their products and brand. To know that you are associated with that brand is a huge honour. Well here is a couple of those images. Feel free to share.  

Commercial Photography – Worcester Bodyworks

I was recently commissioned to do a commercial photography job to photograph the newly renovated¬†premises of Worcester Bodyworks / Worcester Bakwerke. This is a family business that is one of the biggest body repair centres in South Africa. It is always amazing to be associated with companies like this . Please feel free to contact me with your commercial photography requests.    

Commercial photography – Santa Gertruidis Cattle

A couple of weeks ago I had the previlidge to do a commercial photoshoot with the Santa Gertruidis Cattle of Pieter and Alouise Niemand. Their stud is situated just outside Worcester and if I have to say so myself, these are some magnificent beasts. Some of them weighing in at nearly a ton they where prepped for the anual Swartland Show. In 2014 Pieter won best overall bull at the show and for a stud, that is some awesome achievement! Here is a couple of the images, please feel free to comment and share with others.  

Commercial Photography – Centurion Investments

I was contacted by Centurion investments to do a commercial shoot of one of their properties in Cape Town. Here are some of the images I created. Please feel free to leave a comment.      

Commercial Photography – JCR Transport Rawsonville

I recently got commisioned to do a Commercial Photography job for JCR Transport. We set out early one Saturday morning to get all the trucks lined up and ready to shoot. For the motion images I was hanging out the back of my car at 60km/h with the truck not even 10m behind the car. Shoots like this really gets my adrenalin, and my creativity flowing! These images will be up on his new website soon. This will be done by InTouch Marketing & Advertising.
