On-location studio portrait photography for the Johannesburg office of CWDi

corporate, Portraits

On-location studio portrait photography allows you to get high quality, beautifully lit portraits without having to leave the comfort of your home or office. This means less of a disruption to your busy work day as team members can fit their shoot in-between meetings and client deliverables.

Creating these team portraits for the JHB office of CWDi was great – the brief was to capture a bit of each person’s uniqueness and to avoid the ‘boring’ headshots.

I setup a studio at the company offices in Fourways with the dark grey backdrop for the desired end result. The second part of the brief was to emulate headshots that had been taken at the company offices in Cape Town for a consistent look for the new company website.

To get more info on my on-location studio portrait photography options please get in touch here.

Your images can be done against a variety of backdrops or we can create ‘environmental portraits’ with your office space (or outdoor area) to set the scene.

Turnaround times are a priority and we aim to deliver within a week from the shoot date.

Naffie’s Birthday Celebration

Events, Parties

Thursday night saw Naffie celebrate her birthday in style at the magnificent The Marabi Club in Johannesburg!

Friends and family enjoyed the live jazz music, champagne and hors d’oeuvres before being whisked away to a VIP private room that’s a closely guarded secret so much so that photos are forbidden(!)

Needless to say, the party continued there late into the night!

Professional portraits for Holford-Jones Attorneys

corporate, Portraits

I recently had the pleasure of photographing the partners at Holford-Jones Attorneys, Notaries & Conveyancers.

The brief was for professional images for their updated website and for an approachable, not overly corporate look.

We setup in the members lounge at the Blue Valley Golf Estate where the Holford-Jones offices are based and created some great new images for the team.

Thank you Rosemarie, Rebecca and Abigail for a great shoot.
