This was a fun shoot, it was more of a behind the scenes shoot environment, as we were shooting scenes for an international client. Can’t say who yet, until we’ve aired the footage. But believe me, you’ll know it when you see it :) But until then i could not resist some of the shots from the first day.
We shot just on the outside skirting of johannesburg. Lovely venue, felt like I was in the middle of Canada. The lighting played along nicely, so much that Ive only used natural lighting.

It has been a while since I made a blog entry, this was not due to lack of interest, but rather that I just did not have any time to post anything.
Ive recently had the privilege of photographing the pre graduation photographs of the beautiful young couple, Carmen and Pieter. With a dress that can drop anyone’s jaw, this was surely a much fun shoot, with only an hour available to us, and a lot of other couples roaming the gardens, it made it quite challenging to capture exactly what I saw. But none the less I personally think these shots came out rather spectacular, if I may say so myself.
Little Tihan’s first photoshoot
Instagram has become vast growing in popularity over the last decade, where the user create interesting looking photographs using nothing else but their phone camera then collaborate and share them with others.
“Instagram has given a lot of people a good excuse to take a look at and appreciate the world around them”
Not only is it recognised abroad, but taking over in South Africa aswel, which lead to an incentive where a community of instagramers are in the process of raising awareness.
The basic outline of the strategy of the launch involves the following:
Just this weekend I launched the official Instagramers South Africa @igersSouthAfrica account on Instagram. The main focus of the strategy is to create awareness around a combined regional walk that will be happening in cities all over South Africa (I have attached all the “infograms” that contain details about the walks).
This combined walk takes place over the weekend of the 25-27th of January in which each city ManIger chooses a time and place for Instagramers to meet and walk through their city so they can Instagram to their hearts’ content! This will mark the official launch of our local community and a bonus is that we have two prizes to give away to the “Best Instagramer of the @igersSouthAfrica Launch” The first prize is an Olloclip or an iPhone 5 lens sponsored by instageeks (Depending on what device you own), the second prize is a Large Framed Print of the winners choice, which is sponsored by Snapgram. These prizes can be won by simply hashtagging #igers[localcity] and #igersSouthAfrica. Each city ManIger during the course of the following weekdays will feature 1 instagramer a day, which will result in 5 “featured” instagramers from each city. @igersSouthAfrica will then feature the top Instagramers from each city and then the top two winners will win the prizes :)

“It’s pretty simple and a nice incentive to build up our local community! I think we could easily become one of the biggest and greatest Instagram Communities in the world if we do this right :) Since I’ve gotten more and more involved with the community I’ve seen a lot friends being made, people falling in love with cities and the everyday person discovering their creative edge, which I love.”
Lets stay healthy and take some photographs as we go along!
Hope to see you at the Walk!
