Bold

“People will stare, make it worth their while!” – H. Winston

A lot of woman will shy from an image like this, saying it doesn’t look like them or ‘wow, is That me?’ and the answer is YES! Woman find it hard to see their own beauty and probably are guilted when others see it too. To be able to capture the core you and show you what the world sees is what makes my job worth it! All woman are beautiful, we should support each other more and encourage to facilitate the beauty we all have inside and out. I hope you like this image as much as I did capturing it!

Be

‘Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself’ – Coco Chanel

 

“Oh my gosh, Oh my gosh.. this is a sauna!” are the words that transpired in this interior shoot on this abandoned plane. Firstly, carrying a large Octabox is exercise in itself on all shoots (thank you to those that assist, I respect it!) but in South Africa’s hottest Summer to travel up stairs and then enter the tunnel of heat that once soared…THAT is another story! I am proud to have captured Natalia in this moment before we died of heat overload! It was worth it! ..Oddly, for arts sake, I’d do it again! Hope you like!
