I was walking around Christ Church Cathedral in a warm Sunday morning when I heard someone whispering in my ear: “Don’t take me photo! Hahaha!”. The guy who sneaked behind me to make that joke was a small, well dressed, 60 years old fellow who looked like he had seen a lot in his life. He was probably the head of the gang, as the young up-and-coming soldier next to him was just about 25 and had no less than 7 fresh cuts on his face. Definitely not from shaving. The other three massive guys around... continue reading

There is a thing about the night, especially when you walk around with your camera. The lack of people, the sleeping birds, the occassional bat or hedgehog, it's all beautiful. Atleast that is what I'm thinking.As part of a small course I took this photo of a typical windmill that can be found in my town. It's called The Windhound and it's still used for preparing flour.Enjoy. continue reading

The base of the cake carrier had a locking mechanism on it that held the top on. It was a poor design and as my mom was carrying the cake, the bottom of the cake pan fell off and the cake rolled all the way down... continue reading
Here's an easy hint if you are planning to take some golf course scenery shots - take a golf ball with you!Place the ball close to the flag stick and any golfer seeing your photos will dream that it is their great shot captured at that special moment. They will infer that they are part of the scene.Scout out possible scenes in advance and get permission from the golf course manager to photograph the course when no one is on it. Then return in early morning before sunrise when the light is... continue reading
Over the past few weeks I’ve been attending Vega School of Brand Leadership’s Wedding Photography course in Durban, South Africa. It’s likely that wedding photography is the most demanding of all photographic assignments. So it stands to reason that if one can learn to deliver excellent creative photographic work in the pressure cooker of a wedding environment, one can probably cope with any assignment outside a war zone.The Vega Durban photography course has been an enjoyably fair mixture... continue reading
