The Hellphones

I had to make due with photographing the Hellphones at Groove Bar in Midrand on Saturday, they were playing gig there that night so we all met up before to shoot some publicity shots. I personally dig this band, check your gig guides and go to their next show, that's an order. Over and out.

Farewell Neil Hughes

My friend Neil Hughes is off to sunny Barcelona next week and is planning to hang out in Europe for a while, so we decided to throw him a little farewell party on Saturday night. The party was fueled by a bunch of cheap blow up toys and fireworks (set off in the bar). Fun times. I dragged everyone off to the bathroom to stand in front of a mirror.

Home Studio

I recently got a whole bunch of studio backdrops from Jodie Stinson, she is an awesome stylist I work with. I set a grey one up in my room the other night and did a little test shoot, this is the result. I'm going do be shooting a lot more portraits at home now so expect to be shot if you come round.

Annie Leibovitz

Annie Leibovitz is still one of the greatest photographers of our time. This is a shoot she did for Vanity Fair Magazine. You can see the rest of the shoot here.

Graphs Are Cool Too

I added a little stat counter to my blog to see how many of you come round, and where you are from. Gotta keep my finger on the pulse. Here is a chart from the last 3 days of where people were looking at my blog. Fancy that.

The Animal Shoot

This was a story I shot for Lowveld Living Magazine in and around Nelspruit. It was to raise awareness for the people and organisations trying to rehabilitate wild animals that have been abused, neglected, taken out of their natural habitat etc. I was amazed at the drive and determination of the people we got to meet on this shoot, and their absolute love of the animals they are rehabilitating. Most of the organisations need your support, if you would like to volunteer or help with a donation you can visit the following websites to get more info.

Wildlife Centre
Cheetah Conservation
Sanwild Sanctuary
Dullstroom Bird of Prey Centre
The Jane Goodall Institute
White Lion Protection Centre

In the photos, from top to bottom: Alden Prince, Mark Bett, Eugene Cussons, Linda Tucker, Louise Joubert and Lente Roode

Swimmin' In Winter

My brother, Andrew, came over the other night for a visit and I cornered him to get these. The swimming cap is for a shoot.
