Although I’ve been to The Cullinan previously, was this my first shoot at The Cullinan. There are endless photo opportunities! Combine an 21st between  a group of best friends with The Cullinan and you have a winner.  I can’t reveal half the stuff that Jessica and her best friend were up to…. I will surely be shot 🙂

Although I do fair bit of 21st birthdays parties, was this the first time taking photos on a party bus. Of course not being able to hold onto anything while the bus is in motion (I use both hands – one for the camera and the other one for the slave flash) was challenging…. but lots of fun!!

They might as well call a Party Bus a Rodeo Bull…. same effect 🙂

Check out some samples from the crazy rodeo-bull party bus:

 

I recently had the opportunity to take some photos at Jason’s 1st birthday. Kiddies make such cute photos 🙂
Here are some of the pictures of the party (with permission of the parents of course!).

I recently took some photos at Keaton’s birthday bash at the Purple Turtle. The amount of DJ talent present was impressive! 2 dance floors, Dubstep, Hardstyle….. perfect for kick-ass photos!

I recently did the photography for Dayna’s 21st birthday at Simonsvlei near Paarl. Even though I lived in Paarl all my life, did I never actually visit Simonsvlei! Ermmm.

The decor and venue looked great!

I recently did the photography for Clayton’s 21st birthday at Joie de Vivre near Klapmuts. This was the first time that I used my new acquired Nikon D700, which I purchased the day before…. It was a steep learning curve to adjust the new camera but the camera delivered stunning photos.

This is my first Blog update in a while. I took 3 weeks holiday that started on 30 November and (surprisingly) spent most of my holiday shooting events!! This past week (starting on 12 December) I took a proper holiday and went to Knysna for a break.

Enough of the excuses…… Bunker Bar & Restaurant recently celebrated their 2nd year birthday party in style and hosted a beach party. The entry was free and attendance was HUGE. Around 10pm the venue was so full that they could not allow any more people in. Awesome DJ’s, Awesome Music, Awesome party.

I recently had the opportunity to cover Dean’s 21st birthday party, held at Kanonberg,
The theme was “Back to the 80’s” which provided many interesting photo opportunities.
Many thanks to Dean for allow me to share some of his 21st photos…

I recently had the opportunity to take photos at Chloé’s 21 st birthday party hosted by Inside Sports Bar @ Eden on the Bay. The theme was “Venetian Masquerade” and there were some very original outfits and masks everywhere you looked.

Chloé has been kind enough to allow me to load some of her birthday pics on my blog!

Check them out 🙂

This was one of the more interesting events that I have covered in recent times.

The theme of the party was 1920 / Gatsby and there were definitely some very interesting outfits and accessories! Many thanks to Yolanda allowing me to share some pics of her birthday party.
