Benedene and Aldrich Wedding Sneak Peek

A wonderful “rustic wedding” at Rondekuil Farm in Durbanville positioned amongst rolling hills with breath-taking views of the Boland Mountain Ranges and Table Mountain.

This was a very special wedding for me, I met Benedene and Aldrich during a Corporate photo shoot at Clarity Diamonds in Cape Town and they fell “in love” with my style and so I am very proud of the opportunity they gave me to shoot their special day!

Thank you and all the best for the future!

Surfing at Muizenberg

Surfing at Muizenberg

Surfing at Muizenberg is a beach-side suburb of Cape TownSouth Africa. It is situated where the shore of the Cape Peninsula curves round to the east on the False Bay coast. It is considered to be the birthplace of surfing in South Africa and is currently home to a surfing community, centered on the popular ‘Surfer’s Corner’. Muizenberg has a fine, long beach that in effect stretches all the way round the top of False Bay to the Strand, a distance of over 20 km. False Bay, known for its population of White Sharks, also has a shark watch service that operates from Muizenberg, signalling alerts when sharks come in proximity of bathers and surfers. Above Muizenberg there is a line of steep cliffs that is very popular as a venue for rock climbing. However, certain parts of the cliff are off-limits to climbers when birds nest on the ledges.

Olympus Pen F

Olympus Pen F

Olympus Pen F
A timeless design. An extraordinary textured body. From the very first moment you touch the OLYMPUS PEN-F this camera will create a feeling of something special that will stay with you forever. The pure expression of OLYMPUS design that will inspire you for a lifetime.

Using multi shot technology the camera can produce 50 megapixel equivalent images in JPEG and an 80mp RAW file.  This obviously is best for static scenes and performance while on a tripod but is does allow for superb detailed images when needed.  This is especially suited for interiors and product type of photography.

Just a turn of the dial to Mono allows you to capture monochromatic images.  This mono mode has the ability to adjust the image based on color filters and degrees of intensity.  Under the Mode selector knob on top of the camera is a lever control and by pushing left or right on it you bring up different options on the rear LCD screen.  You can for example select simulated Red filter and then vary the degree of intensity of the filter. When shooting blue skies it’s just like applying colored filters in the traditional B&W days.

Photoshoot Rhodesian Ridgeback

Photoshoot Rhodesian Ridgeback

Photoshoot Rhodesian Ridgeback

I had the opportunity to take this pictures to this beautiful specimen of Rhodesian Ridgeback male in Franschhoek. It was quite difficult to follow and keep  him in focus in the bush but at the end of the day I am quite happy with the results.
The Rhodesian ridgeback is a dog breed developed in Southern Africa, Zimbabwe.
The Rhodesian ridgeback’s distinguishing feature is the ridge of hair running along its back in the opposite direction from the rest of its coat. It consists of a fan-like area formed by two whorls of hair (called “crowns”) and tapers from immediately behind the shoulders down to the level of the hips.
Rhodesian ridgebacks are loyal, intelligent, and somewhat aloof to strangers.
