Eat Your Beer

Many people I know love to have a beer or two, especially around the fire while having a braai (BBQ), at night. This morning, one of my clients phoned me and ask if I have an image of beer somewhere in my archives. I don’t, but quickly added that I’ll make one for her as it was on deadline for this afternoon. I sent…

Nikon D800 Vs Canon MKIII

It has been a long road to get to this comparison between these two cameras. Once again, a big thank you to ORMS for all the camera equipment used to make this post possible.

Kalk Bay

The past few days I’ve had the urge to go to Kalk Bay. This picturesque place is not too far from where we live. About a 40 minute drive, provided there’s no traffic.

Nikon D800 Vs Canon 5D MKII

I, like a lot of other photographers or photographic enthusiast, have been asking the same question. Is the Nikon D800 the camera to buy. If you are like me and own a whole Canon system, the question is whether to replace an entire kit for a new breed of camera. Within my photographic journey of ± 20 years, I’ve worked with various cameras from…

Duram – Behind the scenes

The guys from Redcrown (http://www.redcrown.co.za/) asked me to do a shoot for them. The client was Duram Smart Paint (http://www.duram.co.za/home/). Before dressing up for the part, the model has to be groomed by Louise, styled by Danny Toua and art direction by Rob de Sousa. Props were made, jackets and clothing brought in for the men of Duram to showcase their products. Some of…
