Special Wedding Shoot – Gerhard & Paula at Volkskombuis

Gerhard & Paula are close friends of my family. They have known each other since high school, and after many many years got married on the 04th of March this year! It was very special to listen to their story, and to see how much in love they are! They kept the guest list to close  family, which is also why they asked me to photograph their special day. It was a little bit of a challenge for me, since I am normally behind a camcorder at weddings, but it …

a little angel called Mia

About 6 months ago my brother became a very proud father. I was there the very first day to take pictures and capture the moment of Mia’s first day on earth! Since then, about 10 000 pictures later, Mia is more than comfortable in front of a camera. So we decided that when she was 6months old, to take her for her very first studio shoot! And what a model she turned out to be! See for yourself!

Melanie Roux Uys Family Studio Shoot

What a wonderful way to start the new year!! My very first Studio Shoot!! Melanie Roux Uys from Fotozoo Studios in Stellenbosch asked me in December if I would come in to her studio one morning to photograph her with her family! I met Melanie back in 2008 at my brother’s wedding, and have since kept contact since we shared the same interests. Of course I agreed to take the pictures, and am very happy that I did. We had a lot of fun in her studio. Thankfully I had …

Shanna's Portfolio Shoot

My friend Shanna, an actor,  needed portfolio photos to give to her Castings Agency! We did not have a lot of time to plan a big shoot or anything. We decided to go for 2 different “looks”; formal in the vineyards and casual on the beach! The Agency only accepts non-edited photos, so the images below are not what she gave them. I picked a couple of my favourites, and edited them a little! My favourite picture – Nr 11… What do you think?

Rietfontein Farm – Ceres Part 1

I was invited to the beautiful Rietfontein farm close to Ceres to take pictures. The pictures are going to be printed on canvasses, and displayed on the walls around the main office at Rietfontein. I really enjoyed driving around on the farm taking pictures. Peaceful and very beautiful. I cannot wait to go back!

Various Shoots

These are some of my favourite random images. Whenever I get time I like to go out and play around with new camera settings, lighting etc. I love photographing objects at weird angles and macro distances! It is sometimes surprising how beautiful something can be close up!

Stock Images

A small but growing interest for me. I was introduced to stock photography by a close friend Vanessa van Rensburg. She is a professional lifestyle stock photographer currently living in Canada. She invited me one evening to her studio and taught me some basics about stock photography. These are some of the pictures I took.

My First Pictures

I have always had a passion for photography. When I was a lot younger, I use to take photos with a “mik and druk” film camera. (non-slr)
My first camera was a Kodak film camera. I remember having all my pictures developed at the local Pharmacy on my mother’s account! She wasn’t always very impressed when the bill came at the end of the month. 😉
I bought my first digital Canon Ixus 4 MP camera in the UK in 2005. The best investment ever! That little camera finally made me realize …
