Bakkie shootout for the December issue of TopCar

{automotive} Last month the topCar guys and myself went on a one day road-trip to the Tanwka Karoo. WOW – this place always blows my mind. If you haven’t been here, go ASAP. It’s only three hours away from Cape Town. This shoot with the bakkies was a bit tricky as the sun was brutal and we had to shoot quickly as we were under loads of time pressure. Minimal lights were used on location, the sun was my light. It worked well. DNA – Desmond

Best driver’s car shootout for the December issue of TopCar

{automotive} I had such a cool time with the guys from TopCar last month. We drove these three beasts  all over Cape Town for two days. I’m talking about the BMW M4, the Toyota 86 limited edition and the Alfa 4C. The idea behind the story with these three very differently priced cars was to compare them from a driver’s point-of-view. The cherry on the cake was when a professional driver took me around the Killarney in the M4 and drifted the last turn of the track, unbelievable! Thanks guys, I loved it!

Mercedes-Benz S500 and longtermers shoot for the June issue of TopCar

{automotive} Last month I was very busy with the guys from TopCar. We went out to the high court in Cape Town one morning eeeearly to shoot a Mercedes S500. The car worked so well in this setting. I also love the colours, it gives it a black and white feel but it’s not. The texture of the building also came out nicely. I also joined Ray, Angus and Aaron with their new longtermers, I had loads of fun guys, thanks!
