Fittees face masks / shot in Cape Town, South Africa

[commercial] A face mask is the new essential, a must in South Africa (and many other countries around the world). Who would have ever thought we’d walk around wearing masks? It first felt strange, now it’s normal; “The new normal” everyone is talking about. 

Our friends at Fittees make these slick black masks at a super price ZAR25-ZAR50. You can shop them here and of course in store at Fittees – 352 Victoria Rd, Salt River, Cape Town. We loved shooting them and having a little fun with Tobie and Sarah.

What a great country we get to live in! Thanks again to the Hong Kong team for giving us such a great gig. [Have a look at the South Africa feature we shot for Cathay Pacific a while back.

ISUZU MU-X shot for High Life, British Airways’ inflight magazine / Cederberg, South Africa

[advertorial] We drove to Wupperthal and did the donkey trail in the Cederberg mountains. What a blast!! Check the airtime Antonia got in one of the shots. 😂
To see Wupperthal after the devastating fires from New Year’s Eve 2018 was really sad. Much of the historic town was destroyed. Though, we met locals who were super positive with the rebuilding. #sterkte

Volvo XC60 / advertorial shot for High Life, British Airways’ inflight magazine / Cape Town, South Africa

South Africa feature for Cathay Pacific’s inflight magazine Discovery

[editorial] For a South Africa feature in Cathay Pacific‘s inflight magazine Discovery we got to travel all over South Africa. Kruger Park, Route 62, Cango Caves in Oudtshoorn and Cape Town were on our list (including Chapman’s Peak, Boulders Beach, Cape Point, Kalk Bay etc.). Great being a tourist in your own country! Thanks to the Hong Kong team for giving us such a great gig.
