Swimwear Shoot

I did a swimwear shoot yesterday in fine but cold conditions. My niece, Natalie, came along to assist and also take some photo's. The model had beautiful long hair and perservered in the cold conditions. She had 3 different sets of swimwear and I will most some more images soon.

Family Shoot

I did a fun Family shoot last weekend. Parents and 7 month old baby. It was quite exhausting as babies do not take direction very well. However it was extremely satisfying.

Copies and pasted the email from the client here.
Hi Alex,

Just to say Thank you very much…the photos are great!! You really did a great job.
Many thanks for your patience and understanding.

The little boy looks stunning!!

Much appreciated,

The Two Tarryns

I did a shoot last week for a model called Tarryn who asked if she could bring a friend along for a few shots. I said with pleasure, It turned out that the friend was also named Tarryn. Now I am bad at remembering people's names. At least this made it a lot easier BUT was at times confusing while giving direction when shooting them together.

Did another beach shoot 2 days later.

The weather at this time of year is really ideal for this. Cool and Sunny windless days.

Beach Shoot

I had a beach shoot yesterday in absolutely magnificent weather. This is normal for this time of the year in Cape Town as we head towards winter. The strong summer winds have all but gone. The temperatures are a bit cooler and the sun is not so high in the sky which makes the light a bit softer.

Update April 2011

After a relatively quiet March, April is starting off well with a fair number of shoots already booked. I am offering a "special" for the month. 

For model portfolio's, boudoir, and family shoots of up to 2 Adults and 2 small children the cost of a shoot will be R650.00 for a studio shoot and R450.00 for a shoot at Blaauwberg Beach. Larger groups will be quoted on application.

These are some images from a family shoot on the beach last week.

My studio at home is very restricted for space and can accomodate a maximum of 2 Adults and 2small children.
For larger groups I suggest a shoot on the beach where space is not an issue. However I do have access to a larger studio space nearby, but this does add to the cost of the shoot.

I did a family shoot down at the beach yesterday. The weather was perfect. During a break I snapped off this shot of a Microlight flying over.
It was much further away than it looks here and image is cropped a lot.
