Wedding: C+V

 645_20110310

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged a wedding, and as it stands, I’m rather behind on blog-posts. Without saying too much, we were (Philip joined me for the day) fortunate enough to shoot a gorgeous wedding for a couple from Australia, with about sixty of their friends, at Churchhaven in the West Coast National Park. We were only there for 2 hours, but fun we did have and the couple was a joy to work with. Enjoy a couple of outtakes.

Apart from the event organiser having to phone me on the way to organise toilet-paper as the venue had suddenly run out, there was also the question of blistering sun and wind. Wind as only it can blow on the West Coast. But as I’ve said ad nauseum: get lemons, make lemonade. I’ve always found that apart from the discomfort on the day, wind makes for beautiful pictures. Dresses show better when blown about a bit, and I’m a sucker for wind-swept hair. It all just suits the whole mystery of the bride. Anyways, herewith, as promised some more pictures.

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…
