@misskayellis – pink drinks & greenery

Kay and I met at Raptor Room recently to photograph her outfit. I’ve always wanted to visit the restaurant and finally had an excuse to make my way to a side of town that I rarely visit unless I’m buying  photographic equipment. Kay always has such wonderful locations and I enjoy working with her before…

Tatym

A beautiful Spring morning adventure though the gardens at the Vineyard Hotel in Claremont… Tatym won a competition that I held via instagram last month which allowed her a one outfit, 30 minute shoot with me at a location of her choice. She chose the Vineyard Hotel Garden as her shoot location. On the morning…

Spring feels with @zbzoebrown

I photographed a beautiful spring look with Zoe Brown this month. We met in my favourite street in De Waterkant and when I saw this outfit I knew exactly where we had to photograph it. The bougainvillea flowers really brought out the red & green in Zoe’s outfit and gave the look a fresh, warm…

@flourishingfitmoms x @onemodernmom x @kellylubbee

I captured a stunning fitness shoot on the beach for Flourishing Fitmoms recently. My models were fit-moms, Kelly and Lisa. I was worried about the light getting harsher as the morning progressed but we were treated to the most amazing soft mist which gave our photos a beautiful hazy look. The soft mist was like…

Sun, sea, sand with @bakedonline

I was so excited to shoot with Aisha Baker-Parnell again! This time we ventured out to “my side” of Cape Town, where we met up to shoot a few pics in the fresh, crisp morning light. I’m always hiding away from the sun for moody, shade located shoots in the city so I was really…

@fitnessgirlZA x @cottononbody

I shot for Tracey Lusty in studio recently. We worked with Cotton On Body to showcase some of their beautiful pieces & to create content for a special blog post they shared on their site featuring Tracey. It was Tracey’s first time revealing a little more skin than usual & I was honoured to capture…

4 photographers, 1 model = the 3 minute challenge

My first official Youtube vlog challenge was such fun! I chose to join the trending online challenge called – 4 photographers shoot 1 model – and then I decided to add an extra challenge – we only had 3 minutes to get the shot!  I contacted Mishqa, Nina & Jess to see if they were…

Head shots with Josie

Josie and I met in studio recently to shoot some head shots for per portfolio/ press photos. I opted for a very soft look for the images – I’m not a fan of the high-key lighting kind of studio shoots. I opted for one light with a white umbrella for a nice soft, evenly dispersement…

Swimwear with @candibod

Candice and I met up at sunrise to shoot a swimwear concept that she needed in order to announce some exciting news! When we arrived, the gloomy clouds did too… I really loved the contrast between the sun shining on Candice and the dark grey clouds in the background…but as the image was for an…

Portraits with Melissa Magiera

Melissa and I collaborated on this portrait shoot recently. Lately I am loving nature-based shoots and wanted to capture something dark and wintery. I contacted Georgie Rattle Apparel (she has the most amazing faux fur coats) and asked her if she’d like to join us in collaborating. For shoots like these, I only ever shoot…

Dyna & Andrian visit Cape Town

Dyna found me via instagram a few weeks ago and asked me to capture their stay in Cape Town. The couple were visiting for a short while all the way from Jakarta, Indonesia. They asked for an iconic location – popular for tourists – and after our first location was moved twice due to weather…

Raw Explosions Blog

Simone Munnik and I met early one morning to photograph this gym-inspired look. She wrote an awesome blog post about her fitness journey here. It’s such an inspiring post –  (like many of her posts). I loved the soft lighting in this location as well as the dark, textured background which made Simone’s outfit POP!…
