During my time in the UK I managed to get my favourite model in front of the lens!
Here I used a Canon 50mm 1.8 lens on a Canon 5d mark iii body, shooting into the setting sun.
I had the privilege of ending off the year with Jeff and Amrik's wonderful, wilderness wedding!
Here is a little preview from the special day, many more images on the way...

Poetry by Carlo Saio
Barefoot soul, sketched
through chicken wire lenses
floats in spaces criss-cross
vexing her body,
as the pixel splattered
frey of her borderless image
stirs shy dust with the pulse
undulating earth into the clover
clouds she palm pockets, above
the valley's tread of herself,
where they peer at her, behind
the stare she has learned not see,
she falls under night, green
glowing larval markings
defend her mapped moist wings
and she hatches a face
with the dark's parasitic grains,
crests a butterfly in the waves
her wingwind orchestrates
surging in dream
she sees them playing,
begging to invent the infinite
incapacity of her world,
and so, the unconscious stirring
stippling her shadow,
it's light is hidden
Barefoot soul, live
in the art the word
has taught us to forget
Over the last few weeks I've been working with the lovely people over at Kipato Unbranded and one of my favourite models Alisha Garufi. Below are a couple of the images that I've done for them, click here for more images and to check out the beautiful jewellery that they have to offer.
It's been a while since our last collaboration but we're back, wonderful words by Carlo Saio.
I can hear a child
out of the anaemic silence
of the sun’s warp, daydreaming
in the dark Classroom’s depth
begot and beaten into learning
how to live behind the blood’s
bottled confusion of skin,
The endless conflict
of a porous bruise,
leaking into morning’s ritual
of Mamas laying out makaa
out of the fire of yesterday,
Hens cluck songs from fear
and men hear the struck screams
of themselves, distantly-
in the choral playground of today’s
concealed imitation of tomorrow,
games are stone scratched
on the sands of the moon, blind
folded hopscotch frames
in which to resolve
But tell me when, when
does one ever grow up?
to become perfectly chiral
to the prism jar, glassed
in the existence
of a hemorrhagic past?
As I previously mentioned, a few weeks ago I collaborated with up-and-coming blogger Petronella Risita.
The first thing I noticed about Petronella was her enthusiasm, her smile radiated through the room. As we began to shot I was delighted with the ease she had in front of the lens, moving smoothly and naturally from shot to shot.
Below are some of my favourites shots. For more, head to Petronella's Blog www.petronellarisita.com
My dream is to be successful in the Film and Fashion Industry, I have such a deep love for them both and I'm excited for my journey in getting to where I want to be in both of these Industries.
My spirit animal would definitely be a lion. They're fierce, beautiful and pretty freaking awesome.
I'd say that colour inspires me, especially when it comes to fashion because not only does it express my personal style but it also conveys my personality and what colour palettes suit me on different occasions.
Something I want people to know about me...Well I have a serious phobia of public toilets haha!
Stranded on a desert Island with 3 essentials.
It was so amazing to work with Poppy, you're so talented and I am so excited to work with you again.
A bit of banter...
Travelling is such a great passion of mine and being able to share those moments with you all makes it even better.
