Fly Fishing Heaven

So I said I was going to shoot a lot this weekend but I totally underestimated the fishing at Finsbury. It was without a doubt the best fly fishing I have ever experienced. Between Brendan and I we landed about 50 beautiful rainbow trout in 3 days, and missed so many more. You can read more about the trip here. Here are 3 of the pics I've worked on so far and the last one is a very out of focus shot of me with one of the many rainbows shot by Brendan.

Durbs By The Sea To Finsbury

I have just finished packing my fly fishing gear, camera gear and have tied enough flies to last for a life time. And why you ask, because I am off to Finsbury tomorrow. Finsbury is just outside of Lydenburg and has some of the most pristine streams crammed full of wild rainbow and brown trout, and I was lucky enough to get an invite to go with Brendan Body, editor of Session Skateboarding Magazine. I'll be back on Sunday and am planning to shoot quite a bit so I'll be posting sometime next week.
For now here are 2 pics from Durban I shot a few weeks ago. I was doing a shoot for S.A. Tourism and did a shot on a yacht out on the ocean, it was awesome. Not so awesome for my girlfriend Leksa and my assistant Lexi (below) who both got horribly sea sick. Oh well...

Not A Story on 'Story'

So this was going to be a story about the designer Sanche Frolich and her label, 'Story'. I planned to do it in a similar way to the shoot I did with Gideon in Durban last year, which you can see here. It didn't turn out the way though, there was just too little time, too little space and it was way too dark backstage. So the images aren't really a series about 'Story' as much as they are just pics from fashion Week. Maybe next time I can get the story on 'Story'.
