Here I am skydiving above Cape Town – best feeling in the world!

 In 2005 I traversed the African continent as on-board photo-journalist for the Tour d’Afrique bicycle expedition from Cairo to Cape Town.  During this journey I wrote the tour’s daily online diary, managed media along the route, created a photo-journal and secured and wrote related magazine and newspaper articles. 

 Restaurant reviews:  For two consecutive years, I participated in reviewing Restaurants for the V&A Waterfront Restaurant Guide and Awards, as published by Lannice Snyman Publishers in 2006 and 2007.

Theatre reviews:  I have been writing theatre reviews and entertainment profiles for the Sunday Independent and the Cape Times since 2008.

Fashion and entertainment articles:  At the beginning of 2007 I kicked off my trainers and strapped on stilettos to document SA fashion guru Gavin Rajah’s Spring/Summer haute couture collection in Paris.   Upon my return I wrote several online articles, published a number of photos, and wrote magazine articles.  

My photography is all about traveling, portraits, events, landscapes and conceptual photography. It has been seen in publications such as The Cape Times, The Sunday Independent, The Argus, The Weekender,  The Big Issue (front page) and more

So I can write about the end of the world from a seat of a bike on 21 December! (for what it’s worth)

Travel on!
