On-set stills photography

On-Set Stills

I'm often called on to do on-set photography. This includes special unit stills, advertising stills, behind-the-scenes/documentary and promotional stills. Clients include Moonlighting, CapeFilm, Golden Plains, Kanakna, Ogilvy, Hardy Boys, eTV, Light & Dark Film, Zoom Advertising and Dark Matter Studios.



I've been commissioned by book publishers to shoot author and subject portraits for biography covers, book promo campaigns and media use. Clients include Penguin, Random House/Struik, Jonathan Ball, NB Publishers and Opus Media Group.



My love for photography is probably second only to my love of music. It seems natural then that I love working with musicians and bands. My images have been used in editorial features as well as publicity and album covers and artwork.



I've photographed personalities from across the sporting spectrum, amongst others, rugby, football, cricket, motorsport, running, cycling and boxing for book covers, editorial features and advertising campaigns.

On-set Stills

Stage & Screen

I've worked extensively with artists from the entertainment industry, including actors, comedians, musicians, hypnotists, film & theatre directors and illusionists. This work has included headshots, PR, marketing/promotional material as well as creative collaborations on a personal level.

Corporate work


From call-centre to boardroom, factory floor to reception, I've worked with corporate clients and agencies to produce headshots, profile pics, staff in-situ and environmental office imagery for use in board/annual reports, internal comms and web/PR use. Clients include Primedia, Sanlam, Santam, Woolworths, Levi's, Pick n Pay, SAPPI, Standard Bank, Discovery and Medi-Clinic.

Personal Work


I often embark on personal projects with people who intrigue, amaze, inspire or excite me. I really believe that I'm only as good as the people I photograph, so without great subjects my work would be pointless. If you have an idea for a collaboration drop me a line. I'd love to hear from you.
