Yes finally it is on the shelves .... OPRAH Magazines June issue.. we did a lovely editorial in Monkey Valley with the lovely Rue from Max Models.. The whole vibe gave me a north American feel ... but hey that's just me. Great team for the day with a great behind the scenes shots thanks to Robyn Cooke. No! I don't poke models in the eye..... OK maybe sometimes.
I love when I get an opportunity to go and meet with people who are making a difference to those around them . I was privileged to meet this Grandmother who on a pension of R800 a month is raising 7 Aids orphaned kids in a township the other side of Paarl. Wow! look at this kids...

This was such a great shoot. I had the opportunity to do a food shoot with Harald from AUBERGINE in Cape Town. This really fresh and unique shoot was for GW magazine. I saw Harald today and he was really delighted and offered to coach me in an Austrian Goulash, perfect for this winter nights.

Another day and another shoot for WAG Abigail Clancey for Matalan. Swimear is the theme and Clifton is the location. The team are completly toasted from the day before but as usual bring their A GAME :) Looking forward to posting those pictures as soon as they are released.
This was the strangest moment ... its the last shot of the day and it is simply not happening. The cheetah wants to lie in the shade and he simply doesent give a damb that we are under the gun to get the money shot so to speak. so just as he stands in position for a moment or two Im ready to shoot, I signal the model to get into the shot .... the cheetah walks straight at me ... whew just brushes past me to the flash pack, takes the pocket wizard trigger in his mouth and walks off. Talk about ending the shoot there and then:)
Having just completed a recent shoot with WAG Abigail Clancey for Matalan. I got to experience one or two magic moments. One our "Safari" day we went up to Aquila to shoot with the animals. Tough shoot as we had to get 12 epic shots on one day ... as we all know the deal when it comes to working with animals and kids... we on their time. I cant wait to share the pictures but we have to wait for the UK release :(
