@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…

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…

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…

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…

Ade´

I always love shooting with Ade´- when she contacted me to capture some fresh content I  couldn’t wait to shoot something new with her! I remember our first shoot as she entered Miss SA hoping to get through and now this time we were shooting and discussing her exciting travels to Miss World. I am so…

#bakedtheblog & @Nike

This is probably my favourite shoot with Aisha this year – I know I say that very often but if “you’re only as good as your last shoot” then its a good thing that every future shoot is my favourite. I learnt this quote while studying photography and it has stuck with me, adding pressure…

On the streets with @yesreallyangel

I met up with Angel Campey to shoot this sparkling outfit against reflecting CBD buildings. Angel wore this outfit to an event that I was shooting and I knew then and there that we had to shoot it. We organized a date and time and this was the result: Angel is currently visiting New York and…

Floral Fashion

If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or twitter, you may be aware that I have recently arrived home from a short holiday in Singapore and Phuket. Arriving home in the Mother City was a shock after leaving a humid 39 degrees city and stepping out into a chilly 12 degrees during midday. This temperature change…

@throughshadedeyes – Falling Leaves

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons to shoot. The light is soft, the leaves are bright oranges, reds and browns, the clothing is layered and textured and the air is still warm enough to allow us to shoot outdoors easily. The details in this outfit made the shoot. The textures and patterns against the blurred…

@BaileySchneider #OOTD photoshoot

Bailey and I shot this look on a chilly weekday morning. I loved the gloomy clouds that created a soft light for us to shoot in. Her look was natural and minimal just like our location and it all worked perfectly together.  When I begin shooting with a new client, we always shoot straight forward,…
