Studio Time

Not sure what has taken so long to convert (albeit small) a spare room into a studio at home – best fun decision in a long time.

Sadly the third wave of Covid is rife in South Africa at the moment so booking regular shoots will have to take a back seat for a while but I will thoroughly enjoy using the space as much as I can in the interim.

The Moore Family – part 1

Some shoots are more fun than others and the family/maternity shoot I did with the wonderful and happy Moore family certainly ranks top of the list of fun shoots.

I had such a great time taking these pics, I could easily have spent the whole day with them.

The love this family radiates is palpable – I can’t wait to meet the new edition who is due very soon. ❤

Impromptu Photo Shoot

On the last weekend, before our lockdown started, we enjoyed a day on the beach down at the mouth and came across two fishermen on our walk. On passing, we chatted briefly and all they had been catching were ragged (ragga) tooth sharks.

They had just cast new bait and within one minute had something on the line. I’ve never known such quick luck before and they knew immediately it was another ragged tooth.

It takes patience and stamina to reel in a 120 kilogram fish!

It was great fun photographing the teamwork between the two fishermen ensuring they landed their catch. Even better was hearing how knowledgeable and respectful they are about fishing; tagging and releasing their catches for research and conservation purposes. They, however, drew the line when I suggested they kiss the shark before putting her back in the water. 🙂
