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.

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.  

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.  

Model portfolio shoot – Lee-Ann

I often get girls and guys who come to shoot their very first model portfolio shoot with me. I love these shoots, as is it lets one be creative and you get to work with some awesome people. Lee-Ann has been in front of the camera once or twice but more for fun shoots and not a full on shoot. She wanted to do 3 looks, one sexy, one smart and one fun. So we decided to work with an industrial type location, the last two was done in my studio. For the last look, we covered her in paint! Man that was fun and messy. I felt so sorry for her afterwards as we had to literally spray her down with the garden hose, and the water was COLD. Here is some of the images, please feel free to share.

Worcester Gymnasium – Mr & Mej Worcester Gim 2016

This has been the second year that we did a big campaign shoot for the Worcester Gymnasium, Mr and Miss Worcester Gymnasium pageant. Last year we had the Elements as the theme, this year the theme was Vegas! With all the glitz and glamour that go with it. We did the whole shoot in one go in my studio. Hair and make up by the following ladies, and you will see, it was stunning!

Bohemian Fashion – Model Portfolio – Mindol

I was booked by Mindol for her very first model Portfolio Shoot. She wanted to do a Bohemian Fashion look and I must say, I love that style! I wanted to keep it simple and after some idea swapping via Pinterest, we got our look and off we went. Well here is the images and please feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you think.  

Fitness Shoot with Jody C and Hasselblad South Africa

I recently had the opportunity to shoot in the studio of Sunshine Company in Cape Town. But that was not the highlight, the highlight was that I could use a state of the art Hasselblad H5D-50C camera and lenses as well as their Profoto lights for the day! The first part of the shoot I did the recently published shoot for Deetlefs Estate as I wanted to take full advantage of the monster 50-megapixel sensor of the camera. The second part of the shoot I wanted to have a model to test things like focus speed and how easy is it to handle such a monster of a camera. At nearly R500 000 for the setup, this is probably not something I will own very soon, so I had to make full use of it for the day. For the second part, I did a fitness shoot with the awesome Jody Calitz. She is a fitness athlete and trainer and is also a full on vegan athlete, something that commands huge respect from anyone. Jody was awesome and here are the images from her shoot. Please pop on over to her website to follow what she is doing. All the other links will take you to the different sites of everyone mentioned. Please feel free to share.      

Model Portfolio – Anja

This is the Model portfolio shoot I did for Anja. This was the very first time that she has stepped in front of the camera and she was a total rock star! She was natural and with some guidance we made awesome images. ~feel free to comment and share.

Fitness Shoot – Renée

Shortly after I did the fitness shoot with Angie Snyman, Renée contacted me to do one of her own. We have been chatting about this for a couple of months already and we have passed a couple of ideas back and forth so we knew what we wanted. SO when the day came we were both very excited. As She wanted to use these images to enter for the USN Face of Fitness competition we did some standard shots in the studio. Afterwards, we went to the Wineland Crossfit gym here in Worcester to get some action photos of her training. Well, here is the shoot, feel free to comment, like of share this post.    

Fitness Shoot – Carla

  Carla asked that I do her fitness shoot for her the week before she left for the IFBB South African Championship in Johannesburg. To say that she was in tip top shape is an understatement! The lengths that these athletes go to be in this shape and to maintain their form is amazing. It takes huge amounts of discipline to get there and then to stay there. Carla did pretty well, she places 6th in her category. I just love doing these fitness shoots, to work with models that are in this shape is just a pleasure.
