Northern Cape

Northern Cape

The Northern Cape is out newest addition to our provincial photography map, welcome! Having not really thought about it until now, we shot first in the Western Cape, then Mpumalanga, then Gauteng, then the Eastern Cape, and now finally the Northern Cape. So glad to...

Il de pain

Il de pain

Il de Pain is the sumptuous creation of a Belgian baker. Based in Knysna this is one of thee best places to visit in your time here, should you go. When I managed to visit it on my epic ten day foray through the Garden Route, it was a must-see stop on the tour. Four...

Southern Suburbs Stunner

Southern Suburbs Stunner

The Southern Suburbs rocks it again! Yes, this new block of flats has gone up, thanks to Rawson Developers and the apartments inside are beautiful! I may have been the first non-worker to see this one and the interior decorator did a dream job. What a pleasure to...

Virtual Furniture – Premium Retouching

Virtual Furniture – Premium Retouching

Virtual Furniture is a relatively new addition to our skill set and allows us to insert "furniture" and other items to photographs we have taken of properties where the owner doesn't want the hassle of removing all the furniture, and bringing in new items. We can both...

Beyond the Moon

Beyond the Moon

Beyond the Moon was to be my host one winter's night hence. For a wedding, not a shoot, though I hoped for both. This place was not quite "beyond the moon", in fact, it was barely past Wilderness so I don't really get how they came up with that name... I could have...

Green Point Again

Green Point Again

Green Point was in my sights again as I trekked out this way one hot summer's day. A quick affair, the apartment was looking good and ready. A tricky owner, some blinding light, an ugly apartment block across the way. But yes, we managed to avoid all problems and...

Paradyskloof

Paradyskloof

Paradyskloof is just what it sounds like: paradise. For those who know little Afrikaans, that is basically what the name means. This little haven of paradise, secluded from the busyness of Stellenbosch (never mind Cape Town), was a dream location to visit. First,...

Thesen Island | Summer in Winter

Thesen Island | Summer in Winter

Thesen Island is a wonderful spot to visit, rain or shine. This winter past, it was both. The amazing thing about living in South Africa is that we practically get two summers. Well, in a relative sense to ourselves you could call winter winter, but compared to our...

Bantry Bay

Bantry Bay

Bantry Bay sits at the heart of sought after Atlantic seaboard property. Known for its views, proximity to town, and high value it’s real benefit is in its lack. Unbeknownst to many is the fact that it bears none of the annual summer pelting of the south-east wind....

Living Room sitting | Where real life happens

Living Room sitting | Where real life happens

The living room is quite a vague term, and yet, we all know what it means. Each home has one, from a shack, to a mansion in Camps Bay. Because, truly, if you live in it, it is a living room. Although kitchens have the best conversations, I would venture to say that...

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas all! I hope it’s been a good year for all ye blog readers (any out there?) and wish you the best day of your lives today, and every day. As for next year, much is in store as we grow and expand our reach beyond just South Africa. Look out for a trip to...

Botswana

Botswana

Botswana is a gorgeous country, and our neighbour too. I can’t believe I have been so close to it multiple times and never crossed the border. Much like Lesotho actually. Though that’s more debatable, considering their dodgy fences, and dodgier border control. My...

Wildeflower | A floral partnership of delight

Wildeflower | A floral partnership of delight

Wildeflower is a world-class wedding florist company that is run by an incredibly talented individual and her team. We had the privilege of working with them on a shoot in Bantry Bay recently and what a treat it was! [Pippa is the brains behind the operation and...

Humewood

Humewood

Humewood is a place on earth. In Port Elizabeth, in fact. A small, quiet, unassuming neighbourhood in that metropolis, it was here that I whiled away a few days snapping pics, and playing tricks. Not really, but sort of. It was part of the mammoth road trip that saw...

Standard Bank | Cape Town

Standard Bank | Cape Town

Standard Bank is a fine firm. I believe. I actually do not know. But, judging by this photograph and their exterior, I would guess so. I have the occupation of making a building's interior or exterior (generally both) look glamorous and wonderful. Although I can't...

Plants | Some decor ideas for making your living space tip-top

Plants | Some decor ideas for making your living space tip-top

Plants can bring a room to life. Just ask me; I just bought four and have transformed my room ten-fold. The presence of more oxygen. The natural lines breaking all the manmade 90-degree ones. The green. The smell. The look. It all takes me back to a garden. To the...

Payment

If you would like to select a certain day and it is quite in advance - more than a week - then we require some form of a deposit. This protects us from missing out on other work, as we would turn others away who potentially would use us on that day. The likelihood...

Bryanston

Bryanston

Bryanston is another, more northern, suburb of Johannesburg. Previously I had been visiting Craighall, and Sandton, and many other areas. Today though, I ventured into the "north". Perilous. Or not so much. Bryanston smacks of big homes, high walls, lots of trees, and...

Upper Claremont | Brand new apartment block sets the tone

Upper Claremont | Brand new apartment block sets the tone

Upper Claremont has appeal for those looking to live close to good schools in Cape Town. Investing here is likely a smart thing as I am sure demand will always exist. We took 45 minutes the other to shoot some angles of this wonderful new apartment complex and here is...

Craighall

Craighall

Craighall, Johannesburg. In the Sandton area, close to Parkhurst - this is where we are. It is my new favourite area in the world. Baithe Photography managed to photograph this truly stunning B&B the other day whilst up in Joburg, for another trip of work. It is...

Travel Rationale

In any shoot we spend a fair amount of time communicating on the phone, or via email and we are not paid for this. Neither are we paid to drive to and back from the location - in most cases* - and so our rate per km is high (by SARS standards) but it is simply the...

Sedgefield

Sedgefield

Sedgefield is the chief pick among many coastal towns for retirees, and for good reason. Close to the water, away from the city, very quiet, super pretty. However, I was here for a wedding, and breezed through the town merely to catch a glimpse of it, and be gone. I...
