I haven’t had much time to experiment with my studio equipment yet as it really has been a busy year. I do use them for the shoots I have but I really have been wanting to use them more for shooting people instead of objects. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I shot some photos of my fiance the other day and it was too funny cause she was trying to be serious and kept laughing. It was really spur of the moment and I surprised her so I am going to try again soon but plan it right so that the shoot suites her. This one is really cool though but you can see she is about to crack up laughing any second. She’s amazing.

I have always been interested in lomography but for some reason I haven’t purchased a camera of theirs yet to try it out. I will some day but for now I thought I would just try and process to create a similar feel. I was shooting for a client last night and when I got to the location, the sunset over Sandton City was really amazing so I thought it would be a good place to try my idea out. I shot with a fisheye and processed the photo the way I thought it would look, not sure if I am right or not but I like it.
Braxton Haines is 13 years old and knows how to ride a skateboard better than you could imagine. He was interviewed in issue 27 of Session Skateboarding Magazine which is going to be coming off shelves now. I shot 90% of his article for the magazine and it consisted of 6 of the images below. I am really stoked for their next issue that is going to be coming out now as it will feature quite a bit more of my work which I am really stoked about. Keep your eyes peeled, it’s going to be a good one for sure.
For some reason the weather in Cape Town is always amazing when I am there. Friday was another day like that so we drove up to the top of Signal Hill just to enjoy the view and I shot these two photographs of a tree with some guinea fowl running free with the ocean in the background. I understand why tourists love it there.
