Field Office coffee shops shoots for Pedersen and Lennard

{documentary} A few weeks ago we were hanging out in coffee shops. Not to email or edit or sip on lovely coffee, but to shoot them. We loved the little project and it was great fun hanging with the Field Office baristas! Pedersen and Lennard are building themselves a little empire, not only with the coffee shops but also using them as a showroom for the awesome furniture they make! Thanks for the gig, Luke, lot’s of fun! DNA

Iron and Air story {custom bike scene in Lisbon and Porto
} issue 19

{editorial} We did a trip to Portugal last year to visit the top four bike builders in the country. One of the best weeks of our lives, not because of the country, not because of the bikes and cool rides we had, not because of all the good food but because of the friends we made. Toni did the interviews and wrote the story and I took the pictures for Iron & Air. So so proud of this one! Get the latest issue (issue number 19) of Iron & Air digitally here. DNA – Desmond

P.S. WOW! We are overwhelmed by the response. Thank you so so much.

“In Portugal’s custom building scene, there are people working at world-class standards, and amazingly, for such a small…

dna USA trip {Texas, Austin (SXSW), New Orleans..}

{news} We had an EPIC road trip through Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and then a quick flight to New York City!

So we picked up our little rental car in Dallas, Texas and started to head south direction Austin. We set the GPS to avoid big highways so that we can see more of the countryside and locals. This was really interesting, Texas can give the same feeling as the Free State in South Africa. Every guy drives a huge bakkie or as they will say pick-up. We had fun! Staying on a ranch, buying cowboy boots, learning why we/they have to ‘Keep Austin weird’, SXSW, road tripping, shooting an AMAZING wedding (more about that soon) and having a little bit of hard core winter in NYC. Traveling is good. Life is super duper good.

The air was fresh and the city was buzzing as it was SXSW (South by South West). What a cool city, we immediately felt at home and just walked the streets amongst some beautiful and crazy cool people. We also interviewed a very special guy for our Wor{king} project, but more about that later.

It started to get hotter and greener as we moved closer to Florida. Here are some pics of the swamps and the lovely New Orleans, the jazz capital of the world (and maybe there we saw the happiest bums ever?).
