Cityscape Gallery Project – Invited Artist by Photohub UK



photohub-cityscape-project-02-Joburg-Johannesburg-Lightning-Mitchell-KrogI am very proud to have been invited as a photographer for a Cityscape gallery project for a client’s house in South Kensington in the United Kingdom. Photohub UK put out a call a while back asking photographers to submit images but personally contacted me after finding my image on the web. Only 5 photographers in total were selected and my photo of lightning over the Johannesburg Skyline made the cut and now hangs proudly in this clients home.

The write up from Photohub.uk follows:

Last week James and Installation Manager Robin travelled to Kensington to complete the framed cityscape project that we called for photographic submissions on a few weeks ago

We received some stunning photography from all over the world which hugely impressed James. Our client selected photographs comprising of a typical Johannesburg thunderstorm, a canal view over Hotel Europe Amsterdam, a nightscape over the Red Square Moscow, A long exposure of the London Eye, Ravello on the Amalfi Coast and New Years Eve in Sydney. The selected images each represent a special time or precious moment in her life for many reasons which included views from hotels she had stayed in, atmospheric night scenes from her home town and a Firework display over Sydney Harbour that she attended on New Years Eve.

Once the images had passed quality checks to ensure they could be used for our desired size we printed them on Fuji Crystal Archive paper, mounted and framed them with Art Glass which was essential in ensuring the prints had minimal reflection in both natural and artificial light.

The 6 metre wide gallery wall allowed Robin to hang the six 750mm x 500mm prints equidistant in perfect alignment which now pay homage to memories of some mesmerizing moments in time and transform our client’s bare wall to an exhibition standard, personalised gallery to be proud of.

Buyers – if you would like us to source and install any photographic art for you please email james@photo-hub.co.uk who can also advise on the best print products and presentation methods to meet your requirements.

Sunflower Field Sunset Landscape | Magaliesburg, South Africa

Sunflower Field Landscape Photo at Sunset - Magaliesburg, South

This image is from from last year in Magaliesburg when one of the local farmers planted massive fields of gorgeous sunflowers right on my doorstep. To say I was like a kid in a candy shop is an understatement, I was out each morning and evening to make full use of the photographic opportunity presented to me and captured many wonderful images before the sunflowers started drooping and dyeing back.


On this afternoon some storm clouds were gathering to the South East close to sunset but luckily the storm fronts did not block the last light of the setting sun which created a beautiful warm glow all over the sunflower fields and sky.


It might be another 2-3 years before these farmers plant sunflowers again but I know when they do I’ll schedule in some time to get back out there.

Echoes of the Fallen Sun | Sunset Landscape Panorama – Nottingham Road, South Africa

Sunset Landscape Panorama - Echoes of the Fallen - Nottingham Road, South Africa
Buy Print


This image is from my archives from a trip down to Nottingham Road to stay with some family. I had the opportunity to stroll on their neighbours farm and found this dam earlier in the day which I knew would make a great location for a panoramic sunset shot.


Close to sunset I headed down to this dam and got set up in location and waited for magic time to happen. There was a lot of smoke in the air due to many fires in the area but luckily this did not spoil the image. Some clouds passed over close to the dam just after sunset and gave me perfect reflections over the dead still water. I took about 7 frames which I later stitched together to create this panorama.


Nottingham Road situated on the Natal Midlands Meander in the Kwazulu Natal province of South Africa is a quaint little town and surrounding it sits some beautiful landscape photography opportunitites. Well worth a visit and somewhere I will return to soon.

This photo was captured on an early morning trek in the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda 2 years ago. On this morning our group visited the Agashya (Group 13) family. This family was comprised of members of all ages including some very playful youngsters which were an absolute joy to watch. Some younger and older members of the family were a bit camera shy and spent their time hiding in the bushes.


I captured this older family member hiding in some bushes with a deep look of thought on its face and came across it today in my catalog and decided it was time for it to see the light of day. I love the expressions Gorilla’s make especially one’s that sit alone and stare off into space and was happy to capture a few images like this.


The Volcanoes National Park in the Virunga Mountains of Rwanda is well worth a visit but is getting more expensive by the year. If you want to tick this one off your bucket list don’t delay and get yourself a trip booked today to Rwanda to experience something that is truly unforgettable.

This Golden Monkey photo was taken on a trip to the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda 2 years ago. During my trip I spent 3 days trekking to see the Gorilla’s in the Virunga Mountains which was a totally amazing and unforgettable experience on its own. On my last day we trekked to see the Golden Monkeys which turned out harder to locate than the Gorilla’s and saw our group waiting for nearly 2-3 hours until the trackers had located them.


Once our group was taken into the forest we had a short hour with these very agile and busy little primates. We were taken into a very thick and dark bamboo thicket and unlike with the Gorilla’s we were allowed to use flash photography but I have a bit of a personal peeve against using flash on animals and decided to go au-naturale and stick with wide aperture lenses and very high iso speeds.


Getting a Golden Monkey to stand still and pose for more than 2-3 seconds is quite a feat but I managed to capture this one during a brief moment of him darting through the bamboo forest. They certainly were very amusing to watch and so full of energy and I am glad i decided to pencil in a day to see them.
