Last week I did a shoot for an "Alternative" type model, Jade. She wanted a pinup style shoot with a few boudoir type images.

Birthday Shoot for Joy - Lover of Horses

Last week I was contacted by a client who wanted to give her very shy and introverted younger sister a photo shoot for a birthday present. The shoot would take place at the Pearl Valley Golf Estate, Equestrian Centre as the sister's life revolves around horses.

I spoke to Equine Photographer Supremo, Tracey Robertson who gave me a few tips about photographing horses. I used to ride when I was a teenager, so also have a feel for horses and am very comfortable around them.

In view of Joy's shyness, I decided that it would not be comfortable for her to do conventional poses but rather to just try and capture natural and candid shots of her interacting with the horses at the Centre. The results were very rewarding.

Home Location Shoots

I have also been doing more shoots lately in clients homes. This is nice and different. The one I did this week was a combination of indoor and outdoor. It was great fun. Lovely Family.




Blues Band Portfolio Shoot

I did a shoot last weekend for one of South Africa's top blues groups. The Blues Broers. I have been a great fan of their music for the last 15 years and it was fun to interact with these very talented musicians.

Tammy

I did an interesting shoot this week. I was trying out some different lighting and so did the shoot at a friends house just using 2 x off camera flashes.


I was quite a challenge as my studio lights are definitely a bit softer and easier to control.


Had to do quite a lot of post shoot editing to images to make them a bit softer.
