Hillbrow Shoot

Hillbrow Shoot

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!

Tashinga Wedding, a set on Flickr.

I had the privilege to photograph Namandla and Tashinga’s special day a while back. Tash (as we know him) has been a friend of my brother and I for a couple of years. As with most weddings and especially African Weddings, it was a joyous affair, so much singing and dancing, one can’t help but enjoy the day with them.

Penthouse Shoot

The usual suspects were rounded up for an amazing photo shoot. This time it was the brainchild of Marius Badenhorst from Twilight Photography. The venue, a penthouse suite in the middle of Johannesburg down-town. It was in fact the venue where the cast of our own South African version of The Apprentice were staying (http://www.wheretostay.co.za/apprentice/). Also present were Garreth Barclay, Nolan Lister, Karel Buitendag and a couple of other photographers and lots of models!

A couple of my favs.. more to follow..


Soviet Eyewear or Shooting Russians..

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.
