“I love to let the viewer get a little insight into my couples photographs, showing a little more of their personalities. It’s less about posed moments, and more about who is being photographed”
Two good friends or ours recently visited Cape Town and it was a lovely opportunity for me to capture them in the beautiful settings surrounding Big Bay and Melkbos here on the West Coast of Cape Town. Being a Cape Town photographed one is always spoilt for locations and shooting this couple in amongst the Fynbos near Haakgat Beach, just 2 km from the little town of Melkbos was an absolute pleasure.
Matt and his lovely lady won a shoot with me when I was visiting back in Durban. The competition had a surfboard up from grabs from the fantastic surf board shaper and surf legend Spider Murphy of Safari Surf. Durban beach front always offer so much to the visiting public and can on some occasions be quite a difficult location to shoot, with all of it’s fishermen and beach goers filling the backgrounds.
Woodstock, Cape Town is one of my favourite locations to shoot. The culture diversity, the historical background, the rustic yet modernised retro feel about this crazy suburb are only a few of the reasons why I selected Woodstock for this particular style shoot. Gary and Abigail won a competition shoot which I ran on my Facebook page a little while ago. With over 500 entries into the competition they were selected as winners by a draw and it just so happens that their personalities added to the mood of this shoot.
Cosy Bay in Cape Town is situated just below the stunning Twelve Apostles mountain range on the way to Hout Bay in Cape Town. A small hidden little cove that one has to climb down to is filled with massive boulders that have over the years rolled down from the mountain sides and formed this beautiful picturesque location. Views of the mountains along with Lion’s Head has made this spot a favourite for many of us Cape Town Photographers.
Yes the shoot competitions are designed to bring exposure to my photography but also allows for my audience to see just how into photography I am and how much I like to give back to my followers. This is a perfect way for me to say thank you for supporting and following my work.
What started out as a cute story-line and an E-Sesh turned comic book fun! I met Gareth with a group of comedian friends at their comedy shoot for Splashy last year and when Megz contacted us to do their wedding we were over the moon!
So next December (yeah they booked super early good one guys!) we are off to their home town, Port Elizabeth, to shoot their rocker style wedding….
