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 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.
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!
