{commercial} The South African long-distance runner Dominique Scott-Efurd represented South Africa at the 2016 Summer Olympics. Now based in the USA, she is an Adidas Eyewear ambassador. On her recent visit to South Africa, we did a little shoot with the focus on the Adidas sports sunglasses.


Voortrekker Road / shot for Highlife, British Airways inflight magazine

{editorial} “You can find anything on Voortrekker Road. Really, you can. You can find your ancestors at Maitland Cemetery and salvation at Command of Faith Ministries. Modern-day Voortekkers dragging carts of scrap metal behind blinkered horses and row upon row of caricature car salesmen peddling near-identical Toyotas and Tatas. You can find your bearings by looking up at ever-present Lion’s Head.”

I spend two days on Voortrekker Road with Nick Dall interviewing random people – such a good and positive experience. Chatting and meeting people that live in a caravan park, inviting us into their caravans and sharing story after story. It’s such a special road. It reminds me a lot of America. Find the full story in the current inflight magazine of British Airways called High life.

DNA WOR{KING} X Business Day Wanted collaboration

{editorial} Our project WOR{KING} kicked off in February 2014. We just kept on meeting more and more people with awesome wheels (cars, of course, but also motorcycles and bicycles) and their stories and we had to do something with them. For us it was only natural to shoot them plus to do a little interview.
The history of the vehicle and the memories associated with it are usually about more than just the ‘drive’. South Africa and Germany, where most of the content was gathered, have an incredible car culture. The content features various characters and stories: A son who buys his dad his lifelong favorite car, a family that has owned ten Volkswagen Beetles, with which they managed to conquer difficult 4×4 only passes. A father and son who have restored a Boss Mustang for the duration of eleven years. A filmmaker who loves his narrow car and hopes it never becomes trendy…
The people included in this book are a few that we have met on our travels in South Africa, USA, Portugal, Germany and Thailand.
