Buddies for life

Buddies for life

If you cast your mind back to October last year you will remember that I took photos for the Breast Health Foundation’s Annual Bra-run and The Bra Run Strikes Again.

It was during this fun filled but serious day that I met Heather Pansegrouw, the editor of Buddies for Life Magazine.  Well, long story short, Heather asked me if I would be interested in shooting the cover for the Winter edition of the magazine.  Well what was I going to say? No? hahaha I don’t think so! What an honour and privilege to meet and work with such dedicated people! Buddies for Life and the Breast Health Foundation are non-profit organizations and do tremendous work with breast cancer patients and survivors. Speaking of survivors, bring in our model and breast cancer survivor: Michele Ferreira! What a fighter, and absolute beautiful person inside and out.

Anyway I’m babbling again.. here are the two proofs for the cover:

You don’t know till you know..
I’m not a fundi regarding any kind of cancer, I know that it kills, I know that it hurts, and I wish we can find a cure for all types.

This weekend I had the honour to join friends, families and survivors to make people more aware of the facts surrounding breast cancer.

Here are a couple of images from a day that will stay with me for a long while…

Soviet Eyewear or Shooting Russians..

From time to time I would take on a job, not really knowing if it will materialise or come to fruition, for want of a better word.

Basically what happens is that a client will give a brief, (or not as was the case here) and a couple of photographers will be given a chance to produce the “goods”.

So, I received a little box with a couple of reading glasses in. Did the shoot and sent everything back to the client. Now we hold our collective breaths and pray they like it.
