The last few months have found me busy presenting documentary wedding photography workshops across South Africa. It therefore feels only right that I post some photographs from a recent wedding and the story behind their making. Think of it as a ‘proof is in the pudding’ post where I get to share the story of a recent wedding I shot, discuss some tips and talk about the gear used.
Huawei Joburg Day in the Park ticked all the boxes for an unforgettable family day out.
The sun was out, the grass was green, and there was lots of space for Joburg’s youngest – and oldest - movers and shakers to play. PLUS an entire day of live music from some of SA’s biggest multi-generational artists.
I can’t draw and I can’t paint. And I tried, I really tried. I did however develop a love for great filmmaking, great story and that beautiful light. I swapped my surfboard for a skateboard when my mom, sisters and I moved to Bloemfontein and since then my skateboard has travelled with me everywhere…
I’ve been covering a variety of subjects for 13 years and while I love photographing weddings in my documentary style, I have loads of fun shooting skateboarding for magazines. I’m an old skateboarder myself and have an unfair advantage in that I know skateboarding and can often figure out the best angle to capture a trick from to make it look even better.
