I create. I capture moments. In photographs, as well as in words. As a photojournalist, I use tools – a camera and a computer – in order to freeze-frame short-lived instants in time. To make sure they are remembered long after the passing of the actual moment. There’s duality, a shit-load of it, in fact, as the image I capture utterly depends on where I point my camera. And the words I write depend on my mood, my state of mind, my rapport with my subject, my agony and my ecstasy. But I’m more craftsman than artist, and busting my gut goes hand in hand with that occasional flash of blinding insight.

Ozone Tourism Activation Project – Done

Gam2

Yo-yo-yo #Kouga, what’s next on the @adventure menu. Ended off a stunning week in #jeffreysbay after some wilderness play at #BergRiverEcoResort, #Pabala, #Crossways and the #FerryHotel in the gorgeous #Gamtoos Valley. There’s too much to mention, in between #tuktuk fun, #sandboarding, #horseriding, waterfall #hiking, great #Cuisine and down-home hospitality. Tomorrow, it’s back to business for the OZone Crew as we tackle the EcoBound Mountain Events #TransBaviaans2019 Repeat Lekker to have another #oZoneAfrica Project in the bag, with #IsuzuSA driving our road trip!

Ozone Tourism Activation Shoot – Kouga

Kouga

A day spent in the mountains always feeds the soul. And if those mountains happens to be the rugged ranges skylining below the craggy #CocksCombpeaks, all the better. The only downside here has been that the #oZoneAfrica crew only had one night at #MountIngwe Lodge on the remote #ElandsRiver road. A #BoerWarMuseum, #mtb trails, great #hiking and #4X4 routes, cycad forests, and dozens of nightjars punctuating the dead-still night [...]
