I had a shoot at Eden on the bay with a lovely couple about a week ago. The wind was howling and I decided to put away my Canon EF 18-200mm lense and use only my Canon EF 50mm for the shoot. My reason was simply because of the wind it would be much easier to handle in the wind and I was afraid that sand will get into the lense. Normally with my outdoor shoots I use my Canon EF 18-200mm and for my studio shoots I normally use my Canon EF 50mm.
Here are some of the photo’s I took while we were waiting for the couple. Lian my youngest came with to help me. He ended up carrying props, backpack and shoes…
WOW what a rush opening night was. The models started getting ready from about 3 O’Clock the afternoon. Then while some was busy with hair and make up the rest walked the ramp to get the feel of it. The day was filled with laughter, talking and of course taking snapshots… I went back stage a few times to capture the buzz but space was a problem so I just took a few and then moved back to the stage area where I captured the models practicing.
The little one’s was so confident I think some of them have more confidence in their pinkie that I have some days… Oh my and when they are on that ramp they have attitude and some of them walk just like the models on Fashion TV.
Here are just a few collages of the photo’s I took.
After the show some of the models mingled in their tie dresses with the guests while enjoying a finger dinner. The designers posed with the guests and models and we all just had a great time…
Thank you for stopping by my blog. Feel free to like and comment.
Estrolita Petersen are one of my photography clients. I first met her when Mrs Cape Town Chantal Witthuhn introduced us and I did a portfolio shoot with her.
She phoned me 4 days prior to the opening of ZEEZ and asked if I could come and capture this special event. I did not even think twice.
What a lovely evening we had. The food was great and we all got some tips on how to do our make up in only a few steps… I do not really like make up but in the fashion and beauty industry unfortunately I must also look the part. Even though my face are behind the camera 95% of the time.
Estrolita I wish you all the best for your new adventure with ZEEZ.
I had the pleasure to capture little Wihan at 2 weeks. He was born on 34 weeks. This little boy was wide awake in the beginning of the shoot but we got him to settle down in the end.
I had to laugh even though he was born early this little boy had very strong legs and boy oh boy he wanted them stretched out not tucked in. Later I just let him be. My motto is baby must be comfortable.
For more on his shoot please visit my website under Newborn to 12 Months.
I had the pleasure to capture this beautiful lady a few weeks back.
Candice is one of the Out of Africa Winter Queen finalists for 2014. I wish her all the best for her journey as a finalist.
Here is just a small description of herself I got from her Facebook page
I am proud to introduce myself as the 27 year old Candice Myburgh from the Western Cape. I am a proud mom of two beautiful and healthy children. I’ve been happily married for almost 7 years to the most amazing man ever. I am a stay at home mom and absolutely enjoy every single moment.

I have a passion with working & helping people in our community. It has always been my biggest dream to make a difference in the lives of others. I can honestly say I am living my dream to the fullest. To see others happy makes me feel good about myself and about life. I am proud and honored to say I am making a difference in my own way.
My motto in life: Live today like there is no tomorrow. You only have one shot in life make every second count.
With Louis-Thomas’s mommy working now and with all the bugs that goes around we had to combine his 7 and 8 month shoot. LOL how do you do that well he comes for his 7 month shoot 2 days before his 8 month shoot…
Gerda-Mari was one of the winners of the two vouchers I sponsored for the Miss Winelands Petite 2014 Pageant. This lady is so beautiful I had no problem filling up my memory cards with photo’s of her. She made the most simple outfit look absolutely fantastic…. It took us a while to get a booking that was convenient for everybody but it was surely worth the wait.
I had the pleasure to capture these beautiful ladies a few weeks back. The daughters decided to do something special and bring their mother for a photo shoot with them. We had so much fun and I enjoyed the shoot very much.
A few weeks back we had our second meeting for this awesome project by Mrs Cape Town 2013 Chantal Whitthuhn.
We are collecting ties old, new, unused, unwanted any shape and size for three designers who will then design 12 outfits each made out of these ties. I am looking forward to seeing what they came up with. These 36 outfits will then be auctioned off to raise funds for the Children of Cape Town.
Time is really flying now before we know it the big night is upon us. So far I am feeling blessed to have this opportunity to work with this wonderful team. Knowing we are playing a role in a brighter future for some of the kids of Cape Town….
The Event is going to be held at the All Star Theatre and will stretch over two days. 27 and 28 June 2014.
