Jeffreys bay in black and white - photo

This image was taken late one afternoon in Jeffreys Bay as the sun disappeared behind the horizon. I had been shooting the surfers further up the point and decided to take a walk down the beach to see what other

Book-cover

After a very long time – 8 years to be exact – I’ve finally sent my first photo book off for printing! It’s been one heck of a journey and I can’t wait to get the proof back. Putting something

Final tweaks before print

Layout

One last update before I head off to Mossel Bay: I’ve all but finished with sequencing and layout. All the images are in and ready for print. I’m just adding a few image titles and captions, but for the most

It feels like I’ve been living under ground these past few weeks. Every bit of spare time I’ve had has been spent compiling and editing photos for my new book. It feels like I’ve gone through every photo I’ve ever

Getting around

One last trip up the coast

Mozam point

As a final phase in getting photos for my book, I’m heading up the coast into northern KZN and Mozambique for a couple of weeks in August. I’m hoping that the late winter conditions will make for some awesome coastal

Burnt tree in the Drakensberg BW

Berg and tree bw

I very seldom do a black and white version of an image I’ve shot in colour and not choose between the two. But in this instance I liked both versions of this shot of the Drakensberg.  Order this image as

Underberg Farm in the Snow

Underberg farm

This was one of my favourite shots of the Underberg farms in the snow. Again, brightness of the snow proved to be a major challenge, however, the evening light really added a lot of interesting colour to the scene. I

Underberg in the snow

Underberg

This trip up to Underberg was my very first experience of snow. Up until then I had only experienced it in pictures, and movies – it really is very different in real life. Shooting in the snow is also very

Tofinho Vegetation

Tofinho vegetation

I’ve got loads of these photos of the vegetation along the cliffs of Tofinho in Mozambique, so I finally decided to put one up. Tofinho has a very distinct look and feel and these thick shrubs that grow along the

The house at Tofinho

Early morning waves at Southbroom point

Point waves

Here’s another photo from my morning walks to check out the surf at Southbroom point. What caught my attention about this spot was the calm pools that had formed between the rocks that would get bombarded by the foamy, white

Durban supermarket

Sheep heads for sale

This little stall in the fish market really interested me. I like to compare this to what I see at my local supermarket. I’m not sure bloodied sheep heads on an old wooden crate would attract the regular buyers but

Store owner in the Durban Street Market

50 years copy

This gentleman (and that is a very appropriate way to describe him) and store owner, has been selling in this market for over 50 years. I can’t even comprehend how long that is! Can you imagine the things he has
