"I like this, this is something I would hang on my wall. Beautiful. Plus, only when you open the picture up bigger do you see the ladybug. a little treasure hidden in the frame that you can only see up close and personal"

"The image stopped me and made me look twice. I really like what you anticipated and captured. I thought the photographers head was taking a bit too much weight in the image and a slight crop from the left might keep the viewer focused on the model.…"

This was a shot that I anticipated during one of DPC's practical sessions. And it was literally a fraction of a second. Lesson learnt? Anticipate, be observant and know your camera!

I am calling you!

This scene and image, although ordinary, spoke to me since the day I took it and also as I started processing it. I spent quite a while deciding on the best way to convey the story and eventually decided on B&W and using a Stenope - pinhole…

"I am going to un-feature it, until you uploaded a new one with the accurate colour since we are doing this pic injustice here. See you tomorrow and then we can discuss it. "

I recently attended one of DPC's classes on Expanding your vision and planned with a specific photography project in mind whilst attending one of the practical classes in Maboneng. It is great when the vision (inspired by some of Danie's work) and…

Bio... something about you. Including camera equipment and software you're using...
It was only in 2010 that I bought my first “serious” DSLR camera, a Nikon D90 en-route to Rome and was devastated when all of my camera equipment was stolen some 18 months later.

On encouragement of my wife, Rencia, I slowly invested and built up the tools of my trade.

I’m often being asked what I prefer shooting, and I can honestly say that photography is my passion. My life experience and being a grandfather of 2 all informs my photography and makes me more creative in any genre whether it is wedding, event-, nature-, city & landscapes-, street-, commercial or portraiture photography.

I love the emotions, the romance and all the sentiments that go along with wedding photography. Interestingly I also use this approach in all of the other genres I capture. I often get asked: “Are you a wedding photographer? I can see it in your approach and detail you capture.”

In all of this I (the photographer) am only a witness…..

My style of shooting is unobtrusive and relaxed. My aim is to capture the celebration of the love the couple have for one another as honestly and as authentically as possible.

I want to create images which will make you feel something.

When I’m not shooting/sharing wedding days with incredible clients – you will find me with my family, in the kitchen (just love sharing every culinary experience with my wife) or speciality coffee bars. You may say that I’m a bit of a coffee snob……

What clients has said of me: super professional, work ethic second to none, non-intrusive, discreet, images and album delivered in records time and deliver above expectations.

In closing – yet another quote, and this time from Karl Lagerfeld: “What I like about a photograph is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce”

I’m working on my quote. So watch this space……. 😉

For post processing I predominantly use Lightroom and my tools of the trade: Nikon D750 and d810, with an array of glass from 50mm f1.4 - Sigma 120-300 F2.8
