If you get a chance
check out my picture
on the cover of
Good taste magazine and a featured
interview inside .
I found myself navigating the streets of my home town like a tourist.
in Cape Town this month .
It was quite a profound experience .
While on a location recce.
2 weeks prior to a shoot.
with the objective of locating special areas to shoot.
taking into consideration buildings , traffic, logistics and light and people.
I gained valuable insight in this exercise , refining the way I work and how I prepare myself better .
When it came to shooting.
We had agreed to capture imagery for both campaign stills and film alongside each other.
this made for a good score for our client capturing great footage for both mediums.
I teamed up with make Up artist Elena Becker from Hamburg.
We had the idea to create a narrative that depicted
The famine bond that exists between women that somehow skirts along the fine lines of sexuality and friendship.
Lifestyle / Travel
Tom Tom ride, hired me to capture their rider
campaign in Cape town .
with a couple of days in the Franchoek and Cillaris pass and surrounds .
I woke up to bad rainy weather .
I left Cape Town positive that moments would happen after the rains had passed .
A few hours later our situation improved
just after lunch as the clouds broke up and rays of magic light appeared.
CAPTURING A PORTRAIT
IS ONE OF THE MOST REWARDING
I got this one while on assignment
for Avon Cosmetics
Teaming up with Amplify studio
to host this once off installation piece
The 7 sins
An exploration of a beauty styled photoshoot with a theme on
The 7 sins .
A personal exhibition which was exhibited at gallery Amplify
In Cape Town.
The set of images and films were a result with artists
Charmaine De cock who created the make up and hair as well as the
sharing the responsibilities of the art direction leading into the shoot..
“I’m attracted to things that are a bit more emotional
when it comes to image making.
It may be social issue that needs a voice or its capturing the portrait that
requires a deep understanding of the person.
Things that are a bit more difficult to articulate, so
its about showing art essentially making it
both beautiful and communicative.”
