First Ascent / winter collection 2018 / shot in Cape Town, South Africa

{commercial} First Ascent‘s new winter range was launched last week! It was super fun shooting this campaign with an awesome crew a few weeks back at the height of summer. We thought the heat would be challenging for our models wearing the warm jackets and shirts… but as we arrived on location, the clouds rolled in and the Cape Town drought was no more for about an hour. We could not believe our luck. We had real rain for the new rain jackets ;).  Thanks to everyone involved, we had loads of fun! DNA

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.
