VW Amarok vs Nissan Nivara vs Toyota Hi-Lux

20101015_0062As some might now, unfortunately closed its doors February 2011, ending a great 4 years, with a great client. Together we did many many shoots, made cars look awesome and had fun along the way. I really had the greatest time shooting for them, with not so much as once having any issues.

You can still catch the last issue at, and look out for the writers Brett Hamilton and Wilhelm Lutjeharms continuing their passion for wheels at There will still be a couple of more uploads and posts on work we did together, but alas, once those are completed, this romance will be over. Very very sadly.


Anyways, one of the last shoots we did was the VW Amarok with 2 other bakkies, outside De Doorns, in the Karoo, on the Karoo One farm. I’m not going to say too much, as on this shoot, there are two videos available, and a bunch of pics. Herewith the results and videos showing you what we got….and what got us…. But first watch the pr-friendly video, with the pr-friendly images.

Dangerous Photography Jobs 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

Ford Mustang GT shoot for Jack Daniels

A Mustang is a smoking hot guitar. Seriously, it’s even cooler up close, and way cooler once you start the engine. I’m not a petrol-head by a long shot, but I can appreciate a well-built and appealing car. And this car is appealing. And I shot it.

If you're passing Gugulethu Taxi Rank's way, or JHB Taxi Rank, you will notice a 6x9m billboard with a Bronx ad on it. Above is the Gugs one  and the Jozi one.Now, if you've wondered what goes into shooting something like this, well here goes.Client: Bronx ShoesAgency: Traffic Integrated Marketing - Danie Nel Photography - and Design: Bianca at Traffic Integrated MarketingModel: Bobby Roache - Base Models - www.basemodelagency.comThe concept was of a guy sitting perched somewhere, so one can see a Afro-entric urban landscape in the background, dramatically lit. The product shots of shoes (I shot those later in studio) would then be dropped onto the image along with copy, logo's and catchline. Also, a JHB skyline, shot by another photographer, would be dropped into one of the shots for the JHB billboard.SO:First you quote and get approval and get that out of the way. Then you go for a recce mission to get a …
