A fun day shooting some photos to celebrate the Engagement of Gerhard and Danica. We drove around town visiting Rhodes Memorial, Side Walk Cafe and the Bo-Kaap area. The Bo-Kaap, or Cape Malay Quarter as it is otherwise known, is a multicultural area filled with colourful houses and romantic cobble stone streets. We walked around, taking photos of graffiti on walls, old rundown houses and anything that looked remotely interesting. From there we hit the road to Bloubergstrand beach for some sunset shots and finished the day off with drinks at the local pub. A great day shared with new friends.
In summertime the sunsets are just amazing, glowing reds and oranges, a feast for the eye. Usually these perfect sunsets are few and far between for this little hidden gem of a village on the coast of Southern Africa. This evening was the exception, truly breathtaking. I met my friends Vania and Daniel for a casual photo session at the old harbour where yachts lie drifting in the evening sun. We hang around and chat, waiting for perfect light that will make the evening’s work truly memorable. Those perfect day’s end will surely be missed. Once the winter hits, we are left longing for those long summer nights spent at the water’s edge sipping shallow drinks and shrouding off the worst life can throw at us.
During the recent Helderberg mountain fire, some houses were completely destroyed by the inferno, leaving behind the black charred forest.
A friend told me about this place after explaining to him that I was looking for a location for my next shoot.
This was exactly what I had in mind. My imagination ran wild and I immediately phoned up Elandi.
Dark and moody photo shoot with model, Karen.
Below are a few of my favourites from the day’s work at an old abandoned police station in a town called Strand.
I deliberately applied different styles of processing on the images, mainly to play around, but also to try to create a sense of individualism, with the hope that each processing style provokes the specific emotion that the image is trying to convey.
