Kelly Jay Jewellery

Did some product photography for the very talented Kelly, from Kelly Jay Jewellery - a local Cape Town talent. Kelly Jay Jewellery is made to order for individual tastes – no mass production. The metals are all pure, coming from ethical mines, and she only accepts gemstones that are mined morally. She selects every stone herself, making sure the colour and quality are impeccable. However, she says that some stones have a unique beauty owing to their natural inclusions, and these she highlights in her pieces .

Model shoot - Goldwell colourzoom competition

I had to do a shoot for Mia Crous, a young very talented hairdresser from Durbanville. Basically the competition is held every year, and every year there is a different theme. This year the theme was “elemental” You have to cut, dye and style the models hair, and come up with a costume to fit with the theme. This was yet again an awesome project for me to capture in studio.

Model shoot - Saumya

Saumya contacted me out of the blue to do a shoot of her in studio… she was one of the finalists for the Mrs India South African beauty pageant to be held in Durban in August 2018. She was the only contestant from Cape Town. She needed some professional photos of her in various colourful outfits. Needless to say, it was a feast for the eyes…..the natural beauty and all the bright colours was so much fun to work with.

Here’s a few of my favourite photos of the shoot.

UPDATE: Saumya has won the Mrs India South Africa pageant!! Excitement overload!

Product photography - Matt Arend Timepieces

So I'm busy flexing my creative muscles with some watch photography for Matt Arend Timepieces. My client was looking for a different approach for his watches and I think I did pretty well if I had to say so myself. It's quite a challenge working with a product in macro, you can see the slightest little dust particle or finger print on the product. Just love some of the creative shots.
