Lerisca spent some time with us in the studio, and we really had a great portrait session.

Personality trumps everything, and it is does come out in photographs as well.

Time Flies

Time Flies

This page used to be my innovation page for a long time, but in the mean time, life and technology has caught up with me. i hope to still be innovative on this page, but since the last time I posted here, many, many things have happened to me. Photography has taken on considerable significance for me, and where I used to be a hobbyist, I guess that somewhere along the line, Photography has moved into the bread and butter space for me.

This also means that i have to consider this site more seriously. So while I am considering how to from here, this site will be seeing some changes as I adapt to my changed focus.

So just to get things going – here are some recent photographs.

Visit to Abu Dhabi

Visit to Abu Dhabi

At the time of writing this posting I am in the Dusit Thani hotel in Abu Dhabi. Abu Dhabi has changed a lot since the last time I have been here in 2008. Much land has been reclaimed, new buildings have been built, old buildings have been refurbished and the city has turned from a drab government city to a vibrant cheery place.


Check this space for pictures coming out of Abu Dhabi soon!

A quick update

A quick update

Hi everybody!

So I have been very busy. I have taken thousands of photos and met hundreds of people. I have also so far taken photos to create around 70 panoramas. Don’t worry – I won’t publish all of those, but tgere are definitely some interesting ones :).

I am currently in Gansbaai in the Western Cape, and plan to trsvel towards Cape Town today with stops in Hermanus and Stellenbosch planned.

So have a happy revolution today and behave (mostly)!
