Kleinrivier Mountain Lodge | Some fun in the sun

Kleinrivier Mountain Lodge | Some fun in the sun

Kleinrivier Mountain Lodge was a brief photo journey I made one Monday afternoon, stepping out from Port Elizabeth after a day of shooting a few places, including this one. You can see Kleinriver's website for more information about the place but I would highly...

Tamodi Lodge | The Crags

Tamodi Lodge | The Crags

The Crags are a lesson known area in the Garden Route, dwarfed by the more famous Plettenberg Bay and Knysna, among others. Nature's Valley and Keurboomstrand are equally appealing though, too, distant cousins of the twin glamour girls of Plett and Knysna. However, lo...

Port Elizabeth | Brookes Hill Suites

Port Elizabeth | Brookes Hill Suites

Port Elizabeth is a great place to go if you want Cape Town weather, except the 'lite' version. I was to learn this when visiting the city this past August for a road trip adventure of a photography extravaganza. The trip was a work trip from Port Elizabeth to Cape...

Sandton City or Joburg City | Photography up north

Sandton city is actually within Joburg (the city) but somehow becomes a city of its own. Words are funny like that, as is modern geography, and modern life. A friend, years back, suggested that one day the world would return to city states - the way Rome was a city...

Business interior in Woodstock

Business interior in Woodstock

Business is booming, and no more so than in Woodstock, I'd guess. I have no real clue but the value of property there escalates quicker than a coup d'etat. Added to that, each and every cutting-edge business seems to be migrating there, or thereabouts, including this...

Joburg | Real Estate Paradise

Joburg | Real Estate Paradise

I found myself in Craighall, Joburg the other day. What a gem of a location. Nestled in the 'V' of Louis Botha and William Nicol (two very important roads, it turns out). It's not often you come up this way when you reside in Cape Town but, as things have it, it made...

La Bella Vita Wine Estate | Paarl

La Bella Vita Wine Estate | Paarl

La Bella Vita Wine Estate in Paarl was where I found myself for this shoot, not too long ago, in our land's history. An absolutely fantastic show was to greet me as I entered perhaps the most remarkable photo shoot I had done to date. Generally there is one person to...

How to Best Stage Your Home | Baithe Photography

Selling Your Home: Top 7 Tips When Staging When it comes to home selling, staging is optional though it shouldn’t be. This is a huge financial transaction you’re talking about, after all. You shouldn’t be complacent, only to end up settling for longer marketing...

Overnight Hut – Table Mountain paradise above Cape Town

Overnight Hut – Table Mountain paradise above Cape Town

The overnight hut on Table Mountain is perhaps the best accommodation you can experience in the city. Perhaps the world over. Perched upon the top of an iconic masterpiece of God’s creation (aka Table Mountain), this wonderful hut was built eons ago in what is now a...

Waterfront | Take two

Waterfront | Take two

The Waterfront is a wonderful place to take photos, and live, and work. There are many reasons in fact; it's no wonder so many people choose to live here, and the price of property is so high - both for rental and purchase. The knock-on effect of course is that I...

Pohang

Pohang

Pohang is the location of this photograph. If you do not know where that is, just do a quick Google search. Alternatively, just carry on reading... I was here this past January 2017 for 3-4 weeks and wow, what a pleasure it was to escape abroad again. After my travels...

Ngala Safari Lodge

Ngala Safari Lodge

Ngala Safari Lodge is an incredible gem of a hotel, belonging to the andBeyond group, located next to the Timbavati, in the north west of Kruger Park. Technically it is private and not part of the Kruger Park, but in reality it kind of is, the animals being free to...

Gmtplus | A company specialising in behavioural economics

Gmtplus | A company specialising in behavioural economics

Gmtplus is a wonderful company and they helped us solve our pricing problems with some behavioural economics wisdom. We were never quite sure how to price our products, as some would view certain packages as too expensive, or too cheap, but truly: it is all relative....

Table Mountain

Table Mountain

Table Mountain is the icon of Cape Town, as Mandela the icon of our country. Apparently the V&A is the most visited place in Africa, by tourists, but they must surely all gaze up towards that flat table of a mountain and think "I wish to ascend that place"....

Scarborough

Scarborough

Scarborough. Land of dreams. Scarborough was likely made popular to us over here in South Africa mainly by Simon et Garfunkel. I myself have thankfully been to merry ol' England  four times but nay, never to wonderful Scarborough. Luckily for me, it is now super easy...

Noordhoek

Noordhoek

Noordhoek is a farm village. Not many phrases are more appealing to me than those two words combined: 'farm' and 'village'. The agrarian life mixed with a quaint village life conjures up images of milkmen on bicycles, delivering their wares around cobblestone streets...

Voortrekker Road

Voortrekker Road

Voortrekker road is a wonderful thing. Imagine you were living in Cape Town two hundred odd years ago and needed to trek up north into the Karoo... you'd begin here and cruise! Nowadays it's a street for bargain hunting as you cruise up and down in a far different...

Hermanus Property

Hermanus Property

Hermanus property is a hot thing I tell you. The 120km and 90 minute drive from Cape Town make it an appealing option for those city dwellers. Far enough to escape, close enough to do it easily. Along with reasonable weather year-round, whales for 4-5 months, and  a...

Nelspruit – A day and a night at Shandon Lodge

Nelspruit – A day and a night at Shandon Lodge

Once in a while you find yourself in Nelspruit. I was to find myself here a few weeks back on an epic trip up to the bush. Flying in from Cape Town to Joburg, then having to traverse the country by car to Nelspruit, we needed to stay a night in a hotel before we...

Welgelegen Home – Just another day in the office

Welgelegen Home – Just another day in the office

Headed out to Welgelegen to shoot a home up for sale. A simple affair, we were done in an hour and had the photos to the new client, Omega Properties, within 24 hours. Quick service is a hallmark of successful companies nowadays, and we aim to be among their number....

Fresnaye

Fresnaye

Fresnaye is a prime option for the rich and famous of Cape Town, most likely because it escapes the ravages of the Summer wind. The first thing I think about when I see the word 'Fresnaye' is that: 'surely this is some type of cheese'. This is a blog primarily about...

Simon’s Town

Simon’s Town

Simon's Town is a suburb, or town, in the far outreaches of Cape Town. Technically it is a part of the city, but somehow, like other parts of Cape Town, it's really its own town completely - as the name surely suggests. A former place of harbour for passing ships, it...
