Photography / Fotografie
I love taking pictures of people in their natural environments, but I do have a studio. Since I love my work, and my work involves books, I often photograph people at bookish events, but over the years I have helped many a model build up a solid portfolio – and I am pleased to note that a number of them have signed contracts based on those portfolios.
In my spare time I love to spend time in nature, or to hone my technical skills with difficult photographs in the studio.
Fast shutters speeds, or long exposures? Photography is a mixture of physics, hours of technical knowhow and art.
Whenever I can, I take the camera ino the veld.
Commercial photography need not be boring.
Covering book events has become a speciality.
The circle of life... The ATKV is one of my regular clients, I am also humbled by the amazing work they do in our poverty-stricken townships.
Sometimes I get to eat the most amazing food on a shoot, or I get to hear the best music available. Other times I have been fed pap in prison with the inmates – all in a day’s work.
Photographing the stars – there where they shine the brightest.
My work takes me from poverty to splendour...
...but I love getting back to nature.
Birds of all shapes and sizes make me a happy snappy.
This is why I like nature photography – homo sapiens being a rather beautiful and interesting species ;-)
