The Union-Castle shipping line / shot for High Life, British Airways’ inflight magazine / Cape Town, South Africa

[editorial] British Airways turned 100 last year; when it made its first scheduled international flight – to Paris, from London – the Union-Castle shipping line was the Gateway to Africa. Together with journalist Nick Dall, Desmond documented the old buildings and interviewed some of the people that used to work there.

A few days left of summer until spring

{news} Full hard drives and full hearts! We had so much fun the past three months in Europe. Winter started in South Africa, so we moved over to Europe, had sunshine all along and now we are almost ready to leave again for South Africa, to be there right in time for spring. Germany, Switzerland, France, Turkey, Portugal – we had an amazing time, met and shot awesome people… met old friends and made new ones. We had many days of non stop shooting, unpacking and packing, many flights and many hours on the road. We can’t wait to write down these stories and edit all those pix. Thanks for everyone supporting us – we love you! Now off to shoot the next few weeks until we’re on a plane back home! Love, dna – Desmond & Antonia

Merry Christmas & an awesome 2014!

{news} We are thankful for such an amazing year! 2013 was a heck of a year. We had so much fun and so much work and met so many awesome people down here in Cape Town and everywhere else we got to travel to (South Africa, Europe, USA). So we thought we’d express our gratitude and share a cheesy Christmas family picture with you! Thanks to everyone for supporting us and working with us! We hope that you will have a kick-ass 2014 filled with love, friends, fun and everything that’s worth living for.
So much love, Desmond, Antonia and Piccolo
