New Portfolio Blog

I have started a new blog, one that is more like a website with my portfolio broken down into categories. I'm still working on it, trying to decide on which images to add and which to leave out. It is up and running so if you want to have a look, click here. It also has a 'photo of the day' section on the opening page so, hopefully, I'm going to be able to upload a new pic everyday.

Andrew van Rensburg Design

My brother, Andrew, has just finished his Diploma in design at the Vaal University. I went to his end of year exhibition last Friday and was so stoked when I saw his work. His work was cleaner and a bit more slick than the others in his class. These are some of his designs that I saw. The first 2 are business cards and a letterhead for a company , and the 3rd one is a poster and letterhead for a restaurant, and the last one was for i-Jusi Magazine. Since he isn't going to be studying anymore he is going to be looking for a job, so if you want to contact him for any reason, click here.

Calendar Girl

I was asked to shoot a shot for an Absolut Vodka/GQ calendar. The brief was that the pic should be sexy and have something to do with the shape of Absolut blah blah blah. So I shot these with the idea that the girl and the skirt would make the shape of the bottle, I worked on some to get the exact bottle shape but these are the unworked ones. Don't want Photoshoped to hell pics on the blog do we? The dress was made by a local designer, Lunar, and was worn by Sienna Miller for British Vogue.

It's All Just Hype

Shot the December cover and fashion editorial for Hype Magazine this month.

That's Not Cricket

I'm not the biggest rugby fan, so this world cup vibe didn't do much for me. But what was rad was that I got to shoot the Morkel brothers, from the Proteas, for SA Cricketer Magazine. So this was for the cover and a 4 page spread in the mag. Cricket is the business, by the way.

I still haven't finished my story on drag queens, and I know I said I would only put the series on the blog when it was done, but I really want to get this stuff out there to get some feedback. So here is some of the photographs so far.

A Rainy Saturday

I went to Newlands, Johannesburg today with Leksa to find a post box she had seen that was in the shape of a heart. (We need it for a shoot, if you were wondering.) We found the post box and also got hella lost, but it helped because I got these pics somewhere.

Kids At Ikholwa House

These are portraits of two kids orphaned by aids. Sad as hell. They were shot at Ikholwa house here in Johannesburg where they care for children orphaned by aids. If you would like to learn more or help out, go here.
