    Vanessa McCleland - Beautiful photo’s! And the models aren’t half bad either ๐Ÿ˜‰

To the people of planet earth, and other beings of light who frequent my blog, thank you for doing so! I thought I would blog about a recent fashion shoot I did, show you some work from my first principle.

This girl is new to the modeling industry, still very young but I think she has loads of potential. She was lucky enough to win a sponsored shoot with me!

Incidently I was desperately trying to find an assistant for this shoot to which no one responded! Which was strange because it was a difficult shoot in the fact that the sun was not cooperating like it usually does. I started shooting at 11am which is a very difficult time of the day to start shooting at, luckily I have many years of experience and knew exactly what to do. Coming back the strange part ๐Ÿ™‚ an assistant would have learned so much on that day, more than you could at most workshops and seminars, for free!

That is the traditional way of learning photography, assisting an expert. So enough of that, here are the photos, enjoy!

    Linda Basson - Awesome foto’s !! As jy ooit weer in die nood is sal ek baie graag vir jou wil assisteer ๐Ÿ™‚

This is a huge post so please be patient as it loads! My brother and I flew all the way to Germany and then drove 530km’s (4 hours by ze autobahn) to Lignano for this wedding! it was so much fun tho! My Africanized skin was super resistant to the weaker sun so I picked up a lekker tan without wearing any sunblock ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out my brothers photos of this wedding here! They rock!

At the wedding we met two South African expats, Mr Shaun Koejawel Eater and the well known Amanda de Waal and they were literally the life of the party!

I love this shot.
