[commercial] We shot these advertorials for a couple of Media 24 magazines (Men’s Health, Bicycling, Women’s Health, Weg!, Weg! Ry & Sleep, Go, Go Drive & Camp). The star of the shoot was the New Toyota Fortuner Epic.
Great crew, lekker vibes, and loads of fun!
[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.
[editorial] British Airways turned 100 last year; when it made its first scheduled international flight – to Paris, from London – the Union-Castle shipping line was the Gateway to Africa. Together with journalist Nick Dall, Desmond documented the old buildings and interviewed some of the people that used to work there.
[documentary] When you are on assignment with Oli Munnik, you know you are in for a wild ride! In Port Elizabeth we shot Alan Hatherly (a South African mountain bike racer and Olympic athlete) hanging out with some amped high school cyclist. Thanks Signal Bikes, looking forward to the next tour.

[editorial] For the November 2019 issue of Cathay Pacific‘s inflight magazine Discovery we traveled to the Cederberg. We stayed at the beautiful Cederberg Ridge Wilderness Lodge, visited Bushmen’s paintings, Clanwilliam, the Skimmelberg Buchu and Rooibos farm and enjoyed it all! 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.

[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
Shot for British Airways’ inflight magazine High Life.
[fashion] Our favourite thing? A good road trip! Our second favourite thing? Cabins! And we got both… Shooting and producing the Live Your Winter campaign 2019 for First Ascent (outdoor clothing) was great fun. Thanks to everyone involved for a rad adventure, you rocked it!
[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. Enjoy scrolling through this extra dose of South Africa – loads of sceneries, animals, details, plants… [SA feature was published in Discovery in November 2018.]
