My recent shoot with Nikita! For this shoot we re-visited Johannesburg Botanical Gardens. During my previous shoot, I had no problem shooting there, but this time round I was told that I need to make arrangements to shoot at this location. Duly noted haha!
I recently had the opportunity to work on set for the new movie Dora’s Peace made by Kosta Kalarytis.
Unfortunately I can’t show you the stills I took, as the movie hasn’t been released yet. While I was on set waiting for scene changes, I had some time to do a bit of street photography and I must say it was amazing to be in Hillbrow and be able to see how much it has changed from my rears as a teen when we used to go clubbing there.
It certainly isn’t a safe environment, but the amazing thing is to see how ordinary people, very poor people, live and survive under very trying conditions where crime, drugs and prostitution is so rife.
Occasions like these really ground me and make me thankful for all the small an large blessings in my life.
Here are a couple of shots I took during my time on set.
I hope you enjoy!
I always have so much fun doing garden weddings! A beautiful couple that clearly love each other very much, a stunning location and a stunning day! Whats not to love?
I Used a Canon 7D coupled with a Tamron 17-50 and the Sigma 50-150. For a bit of extra lighting I used a YongNuo flash to fill the shadows.
Here are a couple of images from Leanne and Chris’ wedding album:
Here are a couple of my favorites from my shoot with Cheryl at the Pretoria Botanical Gardens.
It was a scorcher of a day, but Cheryl was a real trooper and didn’t complain once, even though the shoot involved a fair bit of walking in extreme heat.
Thanks for your hard work and great attitude Cheryl!
I am always amazed by the quality of our coffee table books. Cant wait to see this one in print.
