Van Zyl Studios to open new studio in Kempton Park

Van Zyl Studios to open new studio in Kempton Park

Exciting news is that Van Zyl Studios, is planning on opening a new Photography studio in Van Riebeeck Park in kempton Park on the 1st of October 2017.

The establishment of a Commercial Photography and Video studio has been in the pipeline for many years as the time taken to set up field studios has become expensive and ineffective. This means that Van Zyl Studios will become more accessible to a wider clientele.

The lease has not been signed yet, so we cannot announce the address yet, but the space we are looking at will be around 100 Square Meters and will have a reception area, makeup/cloakroom area for outfit changes and makeup, a technical area for editing and large studio space that can accommodate most scenarios.

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!

Hi Everybody.

 

Some of you might be aware that I am doing some work in Italy, and that specifically in the region of Venice. I am staying in a little village called Mogliano Veneto (Pronounced Moljano). I have of course been taking gigabytes worth of photos and panoramas, but have not really been able to let you see too many of them yet, but I would be lax in my duty if I don’t show you some of the exciting new panoramas I have been preparing, so here are two.

Zandvlakte Farm Virtual Tour

Zandvlakte Farm Virtual Tour

Zandvlakte is a truly interesting project that I took photos for on my recent Fall Tour of South Africa. I had the privilege to spend three days with Pieter and Magriet Kruger who are the owners of Zandvlakte and also a couple who are very active in the Baviaanskloof Farming community.

Zandvlakte lies in Baviaanskloof in the mountain range that forms he escarpment in the Southern Area of South Africa. In future posts I will tell a little more about the Baviaanskloof and then help to create a bigger picture of where Zandvlakte fits into Baviaanskloof. It is the last farm that you drive through from Willowmore before your reach the Nature Reserve which is run by SANPARKS.   The farm and the couple who have been living there for many years are not only interesting when it comes to them owning a farm in the Kloof, but also due to how the farm and farming has been transformed on the farm for many years.
