Finally I can slowly start to post some of my weddings from the past season, it was a quiet season wedding wise but still busy enough. Congrats to Laraine and Rob! Hard to believe it was so terribly windy that day, I think one of the tables at the reception blew away?! Enjoy! They got […]

Hello to my three favorite followers! and Happy happy new years! SO I wrote this whole long post about my experiences last year and the reasons that led me to discontinue blogging.

    Tim Wecke - great post Eric. couldn’t agree more… everything u speak about are the same reasons ive avoided or delayed getting into blogging… live life man and enjoy the absence…

Everyone is jumping for joy in anticipation of their photos! My little (as in a week) December break and some sabotage on the part from Eskom has left me a ittle bit behind on my delivery, but never fear, I am working relentlessly to get everything up to date. In the mean time keep jumping! […]

    Jean-Pierre Uys - Baie mooi!!!!

    liezl - hierdie fotos is prysloos! so ‘n pragtige gesin en kosbaarste geskenkie, die kleinding. Ongelooflike werk, Eric!

Thinking back to the times before photography was born, when masters like Van Gogh had to sit, watch and observe to get their work onto canvas. Now we press a button but there is still magic in doing a long exposure photo, it feels more real, like you are creating it.. Really wish I had […]

M & M wedding from Eric Uys on Vimeo. I secretly shot a video of their wedding, just to play around with editing and the Canon 550D’s video quality/functions. View it on for slightly better quality. Tweet This Post

    Eric - Thanks! Yes I have experience with video but none that includes hand holding without an image stabilizer, shooting with an 85 and 160mm lens angle of view is tricky. It sure is a great camera for the price!

    Pearl Hair Slides - Have you got previous experience with recording video or has it mostly been photography in the past? A great video by the way considering you were just playing around!

    The 550D seems pretty popular. It’s almost always the video camera I hear being used when I see recordings online.

The lovely couple had their entire wedding party at the Lagoon Beach Hotel overlooking Table Mountain and Cape Town. It was a wind chilled day but nothing went wrong and everyone had a blast! Tweet This Post

    Eric - Thanks Lauren and thank you Emil for that insightful comment, that is exactly what I was going for! 10/10 🙂

    Emil - Eric, I really like your work! Apart from lovely light, intelligent use of depth of field, colour relevant to the shot, as far as I’m concerned, you’ve also captured the mood, the visceral feeling of the shot beautifully. You are an artist.
