Roxy Rose

Roxy wants to embark on a career in modeling/acting and needed some photos for her portfolio. She's had no experience in front of the camera yet but is an absolute natural! Apart from being just gorgeous, she reminded me a bit of a mix between Edie Sedgwick and Winona Rider and I just love how her personality shines through on the photos. Here's to a very successful career, Roxy! I am glad that I could have been a tiny part o it! ;-)

Frans Groenewald

Affluence is a free Lifestyle magazine that will be distributed in the Winelands area soon. They have asked me to come on board as photographer and I am very excited to see where this new partnership will lead us. For the first issue we did an interview with the extremely talented and sharp-witted Frans Groenewald at Lourensford Wine Estate where he has his studio. During our visit Frans was very relaxed and friendly, shared his favourite coffee with us and allowed us to take a few shots of him in and around his gorgeous workplace. Look out for the magazine to read more about this interesting and artistic man!

Leana en Lady

Ek het vir Leana ongeveer twee jaar terug ontmoet toe ons foto's geneem het vir die eerste Sarie voorbladgesig kompetisie. Sy het toe reeds met die grootste deernis vir my vertel van haar geliefde Husky, Lady. Ek was dus baie opgewonde toe sy my vra om foto's te neem van hulle twee saam. Sy het vir Lady ongeveer 6 jaar terug aangeneem en haar sodoende gered uit geweld en mishandeling en vir haar 'n nuwe kans op die lewe gegee. Sy help ook gereeld uit as vrywilliger by die Helderberg Dierewelsyn. Leana is duidelik baie lief vir diere en die band tussen haar en Lady is baie sterk. Dit was vir my 'n voorreg om die spesiale foto's te kon neem, dankie Leana!

Amalia Uys

If you don't know who she is yet, I believe you will soon. Amalia is, in my humble opinion, one of South Africa's most talented young actresses. Her maturity, depth, empathy and intelligence makes her a great dramatic actress, but she is also blessed with a fantastic sense of humour and perfect comic timing. She played San-Mari van Graan in 7de Laan for almost 7 years, but has returned her attention this past year to her love for theatre. Recently she has also made her debut in an Afikaans movie, starred in various music videos, did some presenting, is the face of Francois Jewellers, and the list goes on and on. The future looks bright for this gorgeous, talented young lady! But above all of this, she is my cousin and I love her to bits. In my heart of hearts she is the sister I never had. We've been [...]

Maria and Arjan

It's been three years since I did my first shoot with Maria, which also happened to be my very first portrait session! A lot has happened since, and I was delighted when she told me it was time for some new photos. She also has a new love in her life, so this time we did two portrait sessions and a couple shoot in one go! Maria is the principal clarinettist for the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and Arjan is the Artistic Director and Principal Conductor for the Magogo Chamber Orchestra in the Netherlands. They are both extremely talented and often work together. They both need photos for their websites, press releases, Cd covers, concert programs and posters. We decided to do a few formal shots and then some more natural ones outdoors. Maria is so gorgeous, she went seamlessly from one look to the next. The one minute she [...]

Gorgeous Greek BFFs

It's incredible how invigorating it is to just be in the company of vibrant young people. Not that I think I'm old by any standard, don't get me wrong! It's just that in my mind it feels like I was a student yesterday, with all my dreams in check, thinking I've got it all figured out and living live to the full. That's until I met up with this jolly bunch one lovely Saturday morning and realised that those days are a bit further gone than I thought! All of them are from Greece and most of them have been friends all their lives seeing that their fathers were best friends too, but it's clear that these four are a bunch of very close girl friends. They all study Accounting at different Universities, but wanted to do the shoot as a birthday present and graduation gift for Eleni who studies [...]

Molteno Girls

These two gorgeous sisters wanted a canvas print to give to their dad for his birthday. But on the day of the shoot it was pouring with rain! So we started off inside the house creating more of a studio look for the canvas. They live on the beautiful Morgenster estate so as soon as the rain let up we rushed outside to have some real fun there. I'm always amazed at how two children from the same parents can not only look different but have completely opposite personalities. As the shoot progressed the true beauty and personality of each of them shone through and I had loads of fun with them both. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Steed Richardson

Steed Richardson is a local kettle bell trainer and needed some profile and actions photos of himself to advertise his business. You can visit his page on the FLUX website to learn more about him and this dynamic and interesting sport. Thanks for asking me to take your photos, Steed. It was a fun shoot and great to meet you. I wish you all the best and lots of success with your new venture!

Mandi Engelbrecht

Mandi het my gekontak om foto's te laat neem vir SARIE Tydskrif se Voorbladgesig kompetisie. Sy was aanvanklik baie huiwerig oor of sy dit wil doen of nie, maar ek is SO bly sy het op die ou end tog besluit om voort te gaan daarmee. Mandi is geweldig sportief en die foto-nemery was vir haar 'n nuwe ding, maar sy is een van die mees fotogeniese mense wat ek nog afgeneem het. En ek is mal oor haar "look"! Hoop jy hou so baie van die foto's soos ek Mandi!
