“We are at a crossroads my little outlaw” 

Shugs and I packed the car and headed to Dargle in search of a forest for our shoot. This may just be the funniest human I have ever spent a few hours with in a car!!  We finally found the right location in Balgowan just as the sun was starting to set. Note to self - forests look pretty from the outside, but actually navigating your way through one is quite difficult. I think we both emerged out of there covered in a fair share of scratches and scrapes. Shugs and I have shot before (my very first blog post) and we went for a different look this time with a new hair do. Love the purple hair and the dark moody feel to the pictures. 

Tamryn is a successful DJ and producer in Durban, and is soon looking to spread her wings out to Cape Town.

I recently did a photo shoot with Mishqah Parthiphal, a local actress. I wanted to shoot Mishqah in a more Eastern themed way, to represent Durban. I scouted for many locations but eventually decided to do the shoot in my garden using Sari fabrics as backdrops.  As always, I prefer natural lighting when I shoot, and really love the results of this session. Mishqah stars in Keeping up with the Kandasamy’s, a locally produced film, that has just been released in theatres nationally.
