Frequently asked questions
Frequently asked questions about my Photography, Videography & Editing services that I offer in Cape Town and beyond
Where in South Africa are you based?
I am based in Cape Town, South Africa.
Do you work anywhere in South Africa and abroad?
Yes, I travel extensively in South Africa for photography and videography work. I have also worked a lot abroad doing travel documentaries in Greenland, South East Asia and Kenya. I love travelling and therefore have no travel restrictions.
What gear do you use?
I own a Sony a7sii camera. For videography I use my 35 - 135mm Sony f4 lens, the 24mm Sigma f1.4 lens and 90mm macro f2.8 lens. I have a DJI Ronin gimbal and Manfrotto tripod. For sound I have a Zoom h5 recorder, Rode NTG 2 directional mic and a Rode smartLav+ lavalier microphone.
For photography and especially for food photography I love using my 90mm macro f2.8 lens. I have a magic arm and tethering cable which I use for overhead photography.
Do you also do food styling?
Yes, I do jobs where I do both the food photography and food styling – you can view my food styling here. The clients decision on whether they want to hire me to do both food photography and food styling or hire another food stylist would depend on the clients budget. Of course, if a food stylist and food photographer both work on a project together, the work flow is quicker and one can get more shots done in a day.
Do you also edit videos?
Yes, I often work on jobs for clients where I conceptualise, film and edit a video.
What was the best job you worked on?
I did videography for a travel episode called Who Knows Where in Greenland. The overall trip was 2 weeks and we spent 5 days dogsledding the arctic trail. The day I arrived in Kangerlussuaq it was - 36 degrees Celsius, so you can imagine how challenging it was to film under such extreme weather conditions! But the footage ended up looking incredible and so the challenge was definitely worth it!
