Market Collective

On August 21st & 22nd I will be showcasing and selling selected work from my Zululand Snow Project at the Market Collective exhibition organized by Angel Guerra and Angela Dione in Calgary, Alberta. The Market has been running since 2008 and boasts hundreds of talented local artists and musicians and attracts thousands of Calgarians. Its sure to be a great time! So if youre in the area its definitely worth checking out. You can find it at 148-10th Street SW (in the old Ant hill building Kensington), more details can be found HERE. I have printed up some top notch Giclee's on four hundred year archival Hahnemühle paper (40cm by 60cm actual image size.. thats 16 x 24 inches for those of you not using metric).. they are going to be tasty, you can get a sneak peak of the selected work by downloading the zip file HERE. I also have a few other surprises up my sleeve but you'll have to come down to find out what they are. See you there.

Archive #2 George Kavanagh

In early April 2008 I was fortunate enough to have been contracted to do digital operation job with extremely talented George Kavanagh on a shoot for Miele appliances. Our location: the Dolomites in the Italian Alps (the same location used in the feature film "Cliffhanger" starring Sylvester Stallone.. woop!). We spent three days in the small town Cortina mostly eating fine Italian food and waiting for the weather to clear, eventually we got the bright skies we were after and we completed the shoot. We then returned to London after a short stop in Venice (I know, we sound like movie stars.. double woop!) where I spent the remainder of my time visiting with friends and exploring the city before returning home to South Africa. Here are a few images from my time in London as well as Cortina that I shot with my then newly acquired Leica M6.

Explosions In the Sky

So a little while ago I told you to keep an eye out for some postings featuring Photographs from my recent road trip to Alberta, well you might have to a wait a little longer.. I've decided to get my work scanned with Greg & Jon at Wetink Design, Pretoria, South Africa who have in the past handled my scan and especially my print work. So as I type these words theres a package en route to South Africa containing about fourty 35mm slides that will then be scanned, shipped back, spotted, colour balanced and then posted here. So for now you'll just have to sit back and enjoy some audio. This recording is from our final evening in Calgary where we went to watch the fireworks display of the Stampede Rodeo's closing cermony. We perched on top a valley across from the Stampede grounds and enjoyed the surprisingly short but still awesome light show.
