Dudley Nkosi / HFR Refrigerated for Scania Legend Magazine

{editorial} With 235 trucks, HFR Transport is one of the largest independent hauling companies in South Africa. Every day its drivers transport time-sensitive loads across this huge country and beyond. Dudley Nkosi, one of HFR’s “road jockeys”, takes great pride in his work. We got to meet and photograph him with his truck for the Scania Legend Magazine.


Rush Sports CycloPlus Dealer Tour #1 / South Africa

{editorial} Bicycles, bicycles, bicycles… for Rush Sports we documented bike shops all over the Western Cape (often in the middle of nowhere). We got into a van full of camera kit, baseball caps and t-shirts to give away. Every time we saw a cyclist, we stopped, took a portrait and gave him or her some freebies. It was so awesome to make these guys so happy and all it took was a cap or a shirt. Our country is full of amazing people. Have a look at the full Rush Sports CycloPlus Dealer Tour here.


Porsche GT2RS / shot for TopGear South Africa [July 2018]

{editorial} We shot the fastest production car ever made (if you use the Nürburgring as a benchmark) for TopGear South Africa. The rain came down in buckets and we love the dramatic effect it gave the pictures! We blasted through Franchhoek towards Stanford, then back to Cape Town via Kleinmond. I have never ever felt so much power on four wheels, unreal. The new GT2RS makes mince meat out of ALL the supercars and hypercars ever made. DNA – Desmond

ISUZU MU-X / shot for ISUZU Motors South Africa / Port Elizabeth, South Africa

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
