StephenC Photography Update

The past few weeks I have been blessed with some great photo shoots.

I have traveled the width and breadth of The Cape Peninsula photography trail running to mountain biking and surfing. I have watched the sun rise over False Bay from Smits Winkels Bay and Kalk Bay and watched the sun set from high up on Table Mountain and the wine farms of Durbanville.

I have also captured some memorable corporate events with some fabulously entertaining hosts. There was the financial event where Cape Talk and Radio 702 presenter, Bruce Whitfield, was the MC. Bruce is exceptionally well read and up to date with all things happening in the financial and political world. He chaired a panel that included journalist and author Justice Malala, politicians Tony Leon and Lindiwe Mazibuko as well as other well versed professionals. I take in a great deal while photographing these people who are specialists in their respected fields.

Then there was the Tech awards evening that was hosted by TV presenter and all round sports mad commentator Dan Nichol. Dan has a wicked sense of humour and is a fabulous MC who is very quick off the mark. With him on stage was Jan Braai who was just as entertaining sharing his journey from accountant to household name, during Heritage month, and explaining that his surname actually isn’t “Braai”.

The band “Goodluck” entertained clients a company that turned 70 this year and was touring the country sharing in their celebrations with their clients. This was the first time I have photographed at the new Century City Conference venue. What a great venue with excellent service – it’s not often the event coordinator personally comes up to the photographer to take the dinner order. Thank you!

I enjoyed capturing some company team photos in and around Paarl and Wellington last month. The wine farm Doolhof was the location for this shoot. I have not ventured out to this farm before and was blown away by another spectacular wine venue in the Western Cape. The farm is surrounded by greenery at this time of year – from the oak trees to the budding vineyards and horse pastures. And the wine is pretty good too.

Looking forward to the rest of the year and capturing all the year end company celebrations that will be happening around Cape Town.
