BEACH GIRL

When my clients tell me that they see themselves so differently after the photo session, then I know my work was successful. Photography can be really therapeutic for the ones in front of the camera. We judge ourselves too much and forget how beautiful we are.

Next time you look in the mirror just tell yourself” I am beautiful!”. You will see, it will be very difficult to do so.

CHANEL,THE GYPSY WOMAN

When you look at these pictures you would never believe that Chanel works as a ranger at Botlierskop Game Reserve, practices martial arts, hip hop dance and, top of it, works with Ace Models. That is the true nature of women – transformation. From sensitive and soft to wild and strong.
Through this fashion shoot myself and Chanel were exploring the story of a wild gypsy woman, full of intriguing energy, fire and sensitivity.

NICOLA Fashion Shoot

Another exciting shoot with beautiful Nicola.

This time we arranged co-creative shoot with a talented photographer Eon Coetzee.

Its quite an interesting experience for two photographers to shoot one model at the same time. But you know what, once you get into it, its double the creativity.

You share ideas as you shoot, so you get to try new angles, settings and tricks, Highly recommend photographers out there to give it a try.

Here is what I got after the co-creative shoot.

NICOLA

Meet beautiful Nicola!
I truly enjoyed our photoshoot together. It is always exciting to work with gorgeous ladies, but it is even more exciting to work with somebody, who can change their look instantly.
Boy, this girl can transform her image: from an innocent angel looking girl to a proud lady with exquisite look.

Nicola is looking for more exciting photo projects in the Garden Route, please contact me for offers and ideas.

Enjoy the photo story of Nicola.

Norwegian Fairy Bente

Meet beautiful Bente.

When we  first spoke with Bente about the photoshoot, I got an idea to create a look, inspired by a sense of spiritual mystery and awe, celebrating the forces of nature. It is just something about Bente’s being that  makes you think about warm and caring fairies.
