How to choose your Wedding Portfolio images

One of the biggest problems for a photographer, and in this case, a wedding photographer is how to choose a portfolio of his past work that will represent his style and work as a whole. One can get easily carried away emotionally and therefore choose, or not choose, an image because of a good or…


Kgalagadi – September 2012

In the middle of September 2012 I took a week long trip to the Kgalagadi. My last trip to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park was in February this year and man….how I missed the place. There is just something so addictive about the Kgalagadi that inspires you to go back time after time. I stayed at…


The Nikon D4 after 20 000 images

What always amazes me is these magazine guys that receive a demo camera from a company, take it out for a day or two, shoot a couple of hundred of images and then….do a write up about the camera. How on earth can you give an objective opinion about a camera if you haven’t used…

Using a 14-24mm F2.8 Nikon lens to Capture wedding images.

If I can pinpoint one characteristic of my wedding photos it is using a 300 mm F2.8 lens to capture portraiture during weddings. Sometimes it is a good thing to come out of one’s comfort zone and try something totally different, and that is just what I did at the last two weddings I captured…


UK tourists harassed by lions at Rooiputs in the Kgalagadi

I’m in the Kgalagadi at the moment for a short stay of six nights. Except for lot of great sightings there is also lots of other action going on at the moment! Yesterday we had a thunderstorm that swept through Twee Revieren leaving the camp site looking like a river in flow and with my…


Decisive moments in wedding photography

A while ago I wrote a post about decisive moments in sports photography. What is a decisive moment? “The decisive moment, it is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as the precise organization of forms which gives that event its proper expression.” – Henri…
