Great photographs are all around you

When I started out in photography I spent a lot of time on forums learning, being critiqued and perfecting what I do. I have told many budding photographers over the years to do the same as it gives you a different view of how the world and other photographers perceive your photos. Spending time on forums is certainly a fast track way to moving ahead with your photography but believe me you have to grow …

Johannesburg Skyline in Infrared

This photo of the Johannesburg skyline was taken shortly before the Soccer World Cup in 2010. I captured this using an infrared modified camera which does not block out UV light like all normal color digital camera’s do. This effectively allows you to capture the full spectrum of UV light and create very magical looking images. I became a fan of Infrared photography several years ago and my infrared camera often gets more of a …

Johannesburg Skyline Photos

I get a lot of requests for Johannesburg Skyline Photos and I have a vast and diverse collection of them,  many not ever processed or even published. This panorama of the Johannesburg Skyline was shot in 2009 as a lightning storm was approaching the city of Johannesburg at sunset. The light was just fantastic. The full size panorama was stitched from just 7 frames shot on a full frame Nikon camera and the final image …

Rock Arch at Spitzkoppe Namibia in Infrared

Rock Arch at Spitzkoppe Namibia in Infrared

I love the black and white medium of photography and especially infrared as it as pure black and white as one can get straight out of a camera. When traveling I always have my infrared modified camera with me and on my trips to Namibia it was no different. When I visited the famous Spitzkoppe or Groot Spitzkop landmark in Namibia and went to the famous Rock Bridge / Arch the first camera I grabbed …

Here is a different view “Two Windows One World – Rock Bridge Spitzkoppe Namibia” of the famous rock bridge landmark at Spitzkoppe in Namibia. Spitzkoppe is such an amazing place, out from the middle of the desert rises these spectacular granite outcrops which at sunset or sunrise make for some truly spectacular photography. I sat right under the rock arch when I photographed this and I was pleased with the outcome of the image. For …

Mankwe Dam Pilanesberg Infrared Fine Art Landscape

mankwe dam pilanesberg infrared fine art landscape

I took this photo yesterday morning from the Mankwe Bird Hide at Mankwe Dam in the Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa. It was an absolutely stunning sunrise and once the sun had risen just above the hills the timing and light was just perfect for some infrared photography. It was absolutely freezing cold in the bird hide because of the cold air coming off the water but of course worth every second of being there. …
