A gallery of images from recent shoots in and around Johannesburg. My style is to shoot real moments, candid moments mostly – real actions, smiles, reactions and so on… and then couple that with the odd “posed” image, but still allowing my client(s) to be themselves. This family who live about 350kms outside of Johannesburg, and opted to do a family shoot in the middle of the inner city, Johannesburg – an area called Maboneng Precinct – very arty and very touristy. I’ve included a selection of some of the parts we got to work in.
finishing the shoot with an ice-cream! 😉
This next shoot was an engagement shoot in another part of Johannesburg city, called Braamfontein, and very close to the infamous Nelson Mandela Bridge. this is where a weekly foodie market happens (image below shot near the entrance), called NeighbourGoods Market, frequented by people from all walks of life.
