Danie Nel Photography logs off for the year 2008!

 

 

This is a video Jeremy put together, initially as a prezzy for me, but we ended up adding some pics just to round the video off. It's 8min long, so normally I'm not that bandwidth insensitive, but once a year should be fine. It's kinda lo-res to keep you speedy. The intro is in Afrikaans, but basically Jeremy just say welcome, thanx me for the oppurtunity to work there....,and that's it!

2008 has been a fantastic ride, the best year business-wise, in the last 8/9 years of operation. At times I was booked up to 5 weeks and more in advance. When Jeremy started, things started becoming less manic in some ways, a little more crazy in others, as you'll notice in the video.

To all my clients, thank you so much for the loyal support. My very first client ever, when I was still a photography student, still occupied my studio a couple of days this year! To all the others, my suppliers, colleagues and supporters, thank you so much for a great year. I hope the holidays rejuvenate you and you are ready for another great creative year, next year.

To all the bloggers I followed, the bloggers that visited here and the inspiring people I have met over the net - see you next year!

Dangerous Photography Jobs

http://www.onlinecertificateprograms.org/blog/2010/10-dangerous-photography-jobs/This is taken from the above article, with permission:Photography can be a case of life or death. It may sound absurd, but professional photographers often go to great lengths and compromise their safety in order to get the perfect picture. Whether it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to photograph Mount Everest or a mission to cover the Iraq war, many photographers risk their lives just to do their job. Here are 10 dangerous photography jobs: Extreme Weather Photography
Extreme weather photographers aren’t storm chasers, but they do have an eye for photographing hurricanes, tornados, thunderstorms and other severe weather in their most vulnerable state. As you can imagine, this job is nothing short of extreme. Extreme weather photographers have to get close to the storm when everyone else is running from it, which puts them at risk for injuries and often death. BASE Jumping & Skydiving Photography

Portrait Shoot: Pierre van Heerden

So a number of years back I did a shoot of Pierre van Heerden, South African actor, musical performer, playwright and comedian, at my old studio. It was just for fun, really. I was exploring some portraiture ideas, for a project I was considering at the time. We had a great time shooting these, exploring some cool ideas as we spent the morning talking rubbish, laughing and drinking coffee.

Fast forward some years later, and he contacted me to do an update of the images, but this time for his book.

The images were meant for publicity purposes, his marketing material and such, but what I want to share here is just some of the expression shots we did once we had those in the bag. Working with an actor in stills is great, as they know their face, they know expressions and have a large selection of facial "skills" to employ for a portrait.

I would simply call out a bunch of emotions/expressions and he would comply each time.



The "30 second portrait" I made is an idea…
