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

A Beautiful Noise

There are times in your life when you feel such total pride that it’s hard to describe in words. They say that your children are usually at the centre of that emotion and you know, they’re right. Kids are always an enigma for parents. You try your best as a parent to give them what they

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

Durban Event Photographer

I am frequently commissioned to photograph corporate events for companies in the Durban and sometimes outlying areas. The events range from conferences to produce launches and a few things in between. Each job is different and they come with various challenges, be it lighting, moving around the venue or even sometimes getting to the venue.

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

Regular readers will know that just over a year ago I decided to do the 12 week Body For Life challenge. It was a helluva thing and it involved me training at the gym 6 days a week for 12 weeks, but most importantly changing my attitude towards exercise and diet. I managed to drop

Review: Sunwayfoto FB-28 Mini Ballhead

One of the biggest advantages of the micro four thirds system is that of its light weight. In my case being able to pack a camera and three lenses (covering the FX equivalent of 28-350mm) into a bag that is only slightly bigger than the standard issue bag my Nikon 24-70/2.8 zoom lens came with,
