In order to create a bit more space in my studio at home, I have obtained a new backdrop stand and 3 meter wide grey paper backdrop.
This also helps with the editing as I now do not have to spend hours photoshopping creases out of my white nylon backdrop that I used in the past.
I did a test shoot yesterday and below are some images of the new setup and the shoot.

I get 5 or 6 emails per week on average, originating from my website, enquiring about having only a few photo's taken and not a full shoot.
In an earlier post I displayed an image of my studio at home, which is going to be upgraded with a new backdrop stand and backdrops within the next day or two. This setup takes me about an hour and a half to setup and pack away again after the shoot. It is therefore not worth all this to do just a few photos.
I have decided to offer outdoor mini shoots, at a very reasonable cost with 20+ images on a CD. These will be done down at Blaauwbergstrand. Clients will also still get a Black + White/Sepia version of each image and a reduced size file of all images as well on their CD. You will get a few images with the beach and sea in the background as well as a few portraits with nicely textured walls as a backdrop.
Here are a few examples of what to expect.

Last Saturday Colleen, Me and 2 other friends went through to an "Ink and Iron" day. All about tattoo's, old cars and bikes.
I took Colleens camera with an "all purpose" walkaround lens, a Sigma 18-200 OS. Not the greatest quality lens but a fantasic range for this sort of event.
Some images from the day -
The nicest tattoo I saw
Colleen asked this young lady if I could take her photo

I have had a busy but varied week this week. 2 shoots down on the beach and 1 studio shoot.
The beach shoots consisted of one family shoot for a young couple and their 1 year old daughter,whose birthday it was. The other was for a UCT student and her younger brother to get photo's for a Xmas present for their parents.
The studio shoot was in a friends studio in Sunset Beach for an alternative/goth model that I have done a shoot with before. Very different but good fun.
Below are 2 images from each shoot.
