    "Kyle the Brazilian"

    Today I met Kyle and his partner in the Bokaap while doing a birthday shoot with Carlinn. He is only 19 years old, still in school and in Cape Town on holiday from São Paulo. He loves our city and they both said going up Table Mountain has been the highlight of their trip so far! Back home, Kyle loves his music and wants to study to become a hip hop dancer when he’s done with school.

  • "Celebrations" | Happy Birthday to the awesome @campsbaygirl 🎉🎉🎉 I can’t believe it was 3 years ago today I got this beautiful shot of her while we were living in Malta.

  • #DailySunset - Day 941 | “Low Light” | I decided to get low in the sand this evening to get this shot. Despite the sand being cold, it was a perfect evening for a stroll on the beach with @campsbaygirl.

    "Sive from Queenstown"

    On Sunday I met Sive walking down Kloof Street with her friend Palisa. They were both coming from a gig Palisa helped organise, but Sive was there to enjoy the party. She is from Queenstown originally, but now lives in Khayelitsha. When she’s not partying or hanging with her friends, she loves to read and cook. I asked her what her favourite dish to cook is, and it was the Sunday lunch! I walked away smiling, but also very hungry. Good to meet you Sive.

    "Amy the Fashion Blogger"

    Yesterday while driving in the city, I spotted a sight that I knew just had to be what I thought it was. It was a guy taking photos of a girl, which looked to be a fashion shoot and I immediately knew she had to be a fashion blogger. I turned my car around and popped over to them to say hi. Amy here is indeed a fashion blogger in Cape Town and runs the blog, Fancy Pants The Blog. She has been blogging for almost 3 years now, but is actually a full time Fashion Photographer. Since she can’t take the street shots herself though, so she gets her boyfriend to take those shots. The blog is not just focused on fashion though, there is also a travel element to it too, because the need to travel goes hand in hand with most photographers. Having a blog does have it’s perks though, because in January she was taken to Mauritius and Reunion Island and got to go paragliding and a whole lot more. Go check out her Instagram and blog and Facebook pages for all her adventures and for some really awesome photography! Good to meet you @Amy_Scheepers.

  • "Saturated" | The sunset doesn’t look like it’s going to be exciting at all tonight in Cape Town, so here is a shot of the sunset last week Monday down at a very empty Tidal Pool. It’s like that again today, so pop down there to enjoy more space and awesome reflections.
