About

20120705 0088i mail large

I am a photographer and video producer in Cape Town, South Africa. I've been shooting  professionally since 2000 and I currently work from my own studio in Bellville, in the northern suburbs.

I shoot people, things and places. This include, but is not limited to, corporate- and creative portraiture, product photography (packshots and creative, with a speciality in wine bottles), corporate and business events, interiors and architecture and select weddings.

Since 2006 I have actively been shooting in the wine industry of South Africa, and have built up extensive knowledge of wine photography, including marketing images for estates, products - wine bottles and food - winemaker portraits and event images. 

My work has been published in numerous hardcover books, hundreds of magazine articles and countless online publications since I've started out.

I also hold a large archive of stock images, accessible through stock agencies that I work with, or select images through my own portal on this site, and lastly, I also work on requests for work that might be in my archive, but not available in catalogue at this stage.



Apart from photography being my passion, I also pursue music as a passionate amateur, and I write and release music under my own name, and also as the band "Crashtackle".

You can follow me at work and with my music projects on the social media links provided.

To click with people first is more important than to click the shutter.

Alfred Eisenstaedt, 1897-1995
