Olympus iMfolozi Trail Blaze Report Pt. 1

When I got back from my safaris to Botswana and the Sabi Sands last year I couldn’t focus on much other than organising another safari for as soon as possible. We normally only do our international safaris in September and October, so that meant a pretty long wait, which proved to be a bit more

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

Photographing the Urban Descent Skateboard Event

The fearless longboard riders descended on Glenwood, Durban again this weekend for another high speed event. Literally. Riders from all over the country took part in yet another downhill race along Alan Paton road in Glenwood, which just so happens to be located at the bottom of the road I live in. There were thrills

Durban Photographer Services

As a Durban based photographer I will be honing the range of my professional services to be more in line with the market needs in 2014. I found myself covering a lot more events in 2013 and as such this will remain my primary focus in 2014. However, I will be shifting my focus onto

Belgian Waffles

Food photography is a new area for me. It’s not entirely unlike the normal product photography I do, but there are some elements that make it a bit different. For instance, I did this shoot for Belgian Waffles, which is a wonderful new specialty waffle outlet that has recently opened up at the uShaka Village

Preparing for a safari to Namibia

Back in the late 1980’s, when I wasn’t even old enough to grow much of a beard, travel opportunities to Namibia for men of my age were not only free, but they included board and lodging as well as an entire outfit of clothing. This came courtesy of the South African Army. Included in their
