FUJIFILM South Africa has successfully completed the overhaul of its Innovation Centre Africa, located in Roodepoort, Johannesburg. As the first Innovation Centre on the African continent, it provides not only a one-stop demonstration area for new solutions, but now incorporates a number of improvements and FUJIFILM products previously not present.
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.
Here we are again .
Two small objects, built to make pictures, but can these little “things” make pictures as good as those big cameras we see?
The Jacaranda FM ‘Off the Beaten Track’ is a spectacular annual event, which combines music, family and sport to create a space where you can have the perfect family fun day enjoying the amazing outdoors of the South African landscape while being entertained by celebrated musicians.
It is one of the world’s largest photo exhibitions and it is making its way to South Africa. The FUJIFILM PrintLife Exhibition is unique, allowing anyone, and not just professional photographers, to submit an image, have it printed and then proudly displayed to the public to help promote the beauty of printed photos. The Exhibition is to be held at Sandton City between 18-24 June 2019, with an expected 3000 photos from across the country on show.
My move to Fujifilm wasn’t done on a whim and a fancy. I’ve been looking at the system for some time and actually shot a wedding with a borrowed X-T1. Unfortunately, at that stage it had too many limitations when compared to the setup I owned. Things like battery life and image quality weren’t up to scratch and a move seemed unlikely…
When photographing my cousin’s baby shower, she asked me if I had taken the photo. I said yes and she said that was so fast. I asked her what she meant. She replied that she did not hear the click. (remember that i am deaf) I realised i had set the camera to the ES mode (electronic shutter) so the shutter is silent. I changed it back to the MS mode (Mechanical shutter)…
Photography has been part of me for as long as I can remember. My first camera was a purple 35mm film camera with a hulk tattoo on it that I got in my kiddies meal from Stears. I can’t remember what age I was then but if you know Stears you’ll have an idea of how long ago that was hahaha, burgers were about R4 that time….
People call me Krispy. (Chris P)uren
It started many years ago. My friend and I went out for drinks when her mom called and asked her where she was. She said she was out having drinks with “Chris”. Her mom asked which Chris (In the town I grew up there were a lot of us) and she said “Chris Puren”. All her mom heard was Chrispy. The name stuck haha!
My journey into photography started when I left school to go study Graphic Design. I instantly fell in love with the art. In those days I was shooting on a Minolta Dynax on black and white film and then developing the images myself in the darkroom… It’s a method that teaches you a lot about getting composition and lighting right before you press the shutter….
I was first introduced to the Fujifilm XT-1 in 2015 when Karlien Murray from AtPhoto brought her body for me to try out. Having seen many positive reviews on the colour rendition of the model, I found myself really impressed by what this little camera could deliver. I promptly ordered one alongside the f1.2 56mm lens - the combination was incredible, and I loved shooting personal projects with the combo…
My second trip to Zanzibar brought along challenges that we didn’t expect as the weather has contradicted the norm as August is meant to be a sunny and clear skies month. My client, The Royal Zanzibar situated in the North in Nungwi, contracted me to capture several images for their website and upcoming Sales Brochure…
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa; raised in Dallas, Texas, Rachel Andrews returned to South Africa after studying three years Visual Art Studies at the University of North Texas to complete her studies in Photography at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. After a heavy upbringing in the creative industry with a mother as an accomplished decorative artist in Dallas, Rachel’s main objective is to bring through as much expression through the lens as a paintbrush traditionally would have allowed. Thus, creating a specialised work of art in every image.
Rachel Andrews Photography has been exhibited at the following events:
