Save the Tie Save a Child Fashion show Opening Night: Behind the Scenes

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…

Zeez Beauty Boutique opening Featuring on Website

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.

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….

Mrs Cape Town 2013 Photo shoot Featuring on Website

I had the wonderful opportunity to capture the beautiful  Chantal, Mrs Cape Town 2013 a few weeks back.

We had a blast and 2 hours went by in a wink of a eye.  Chantal brought along her hairdresser and in the end she had help hold up the Collar of the stunning Tie Design Dress by Hein Smit. Chantal wanted it up and on that day it just did not want to stay up. It must have been the heat…

 Here are some of the behind the scene photo’s.
