Portraits for Matthias

Matthias contacted me for a corporate headshot session. He was looking for something different to a picture in front of a white background. We started in studio with natural light, which gave us some unidirectional soft light and allowed me to photograph literally focusing on his eyes. We played around with some flash options and…

My Current Favorite Camera and Lens Combo

My favorite camera and lens combo used to be the Fuji X100s with the built in 23mm/2.0 lens. It is a stunning combo and is probably one of the most versatile setups. During our trip to Paris earlier this year, I made an interesting discovery: I really love shooting with the 35mm/1.4. Though I can’t…

I love food and photographing food. This burger is a creation by @Heleen Meyer and we photographed it for Cecilia’s World. It was a fun and creative shoot out on the farm in Prince Alfred’s Hamlet. My assignment was to photograph Heleen in the process of preparing the meal and also the finished product. It was a mix of action and deliberate styling and selective lighting. Always fun. Added bonus was tasting the meal in the evening, which was delicious. Thanks to Anneleigh from Brandconservatory.co.za for organizing the shoot. Shot with Fuji cameras and Elinchrom lights #food #farm #photography #fujifilm #elinchrom

Althea and myself visited Paris for the second time in April this year. Even after the terror attacks, the city is magic. One of the many things, I enjoyed was to get up early in the morning to go to tourist attractions, when they were without people. Notre Dame became almost a pilgrimage for me….

Morning Walk in Muizenberg

One of the things, my wife and myself enjoy doing, especially in summer are morning walks along the beach in Muizenberg. When we make it early enough, the walk along the water is empty and the light might be dramatic. On this morning, I decided to take the Fuji X-Pro2 and the Fuji XF 35mm/1.4…
