Here are the details of the course (limited to only 5 people): Cost: R3,650 per person – no single supplement for 1st 3 singles to join An optional

Another Olympus Weekend Photo Safari

The weekend safari I did earlier this month with Olympus went off really well. We had 4 excellent game drives and we got to see 4 of the Big 5, with the only one missing being the typically elusive leopard. Unlike the safaris I do in the Sabi Sands with Fotozones/Photographers.travel where leopards are easier to

Interior Photography

Yesterday I photographed a recently installed laminate floor in an elegant and well decorated Durban home for a long-standing client of mine. It’s been a while since I last did any interior photography work for this client, but the moment I got back into it I remembered how much I enjoyed it. For this particular client I needed to try and

Not Your Average Family Portraits!

Now as you will no doubt figure out from the photos in this blog post, Kevin is a rock ‘n roll man. His favourite band is KISS and what better opportunity is there to get all dressed up in KISS make up than at his 50th birthday? We drove up to Jo’burg on Saturday for

Olympus iMfolozi Trail Blaze Report Pt. 3

The place where we were doing our wilderness trail was previously part of the Royal Hunting Grounds of King Shaka of the Zulu nation. History has depicted Shaka as being a ruthless leader, quick to anger and merciless when it came to his soldiers, or impi, as they were known. The ground we were walking

Olympus iMfolozi Trail Blaze Report Pt. 2

Lying awake in my tent I had no idea what time it was because we weren’t supposed to wear our watches on this trail, or use our cellphones. It must have been close to dawn because I heard movements coming from all the tents. I decided that it would be an opportune time for me to

Mini Safari With Olympus

Since 2009 I have been leading photography safaris in Southern Africa for international guests via Photographers.travel. While those expensive safaris are very exciting for me to be involved in, one of the things I have always wanted to do is create affordable safaris for local photography enthusiasts, who I believe also deserve to experience a safari at a

Rocking Out On MayDay

The Sycamore Academy Of Rock had yet another awesome gig night at Zack’s Wilson’s Wharf this past MayDay, with all the students playing short 2 or 4 song sets. There were also a few friends of the academy on stage to fill the evening too. It was all in all another very successful event –

The Beat Of Your Own Drum

A couple of years ago I had no idea what a “cajon” drum was. It sounded like some kind of Mexican take away food to me. Then I saw Dan Patlansky playing unplugged at The Barnyard and his drummer was sitting on this box thing, whacking it in different places to get different sounds and tones

How Weddings Should Happen

Traditional weddings are not things I am very fond of. I find myself somewhat allergic to their staid nature. Everybody attending; gets all dressed up in uncomfortable clothing, travels to pretentiously over-decorated venues that are usually well out of the grasp of convenience for the invited guests, eats stupendously over-priced food, and sits at tables with strict family

Trail Blazing With Olympus South Africa

I’m A Brand Ambassador! About a year ago I was approached by Tudortech, who are the importing agents for some very cool photographic brands in SA (Olympus, Leica, Sigma, Velbon, SanDisk & Belkin) to become one of the local brand ambassadors for Olympus products. At that stage I had been shooting with Olympus for over a year
