I work from my studio at my home in Cape Town; this is where I select and edit my photographs, sometimes for weeks after a trip. Then when we have the final selection of images, the phase of test printing starts until I am happy with the outcome and the colours of the image come out the way I anticipated.
This is very exciting because although I have viewed the images numerous times on the screen when they are actually printed to their full size then it is a totally different perception.
Only when I am happy with everything and we have completed the test printing phase the images get uploaded on my website and are then available to purchase.
Each image has its own story and special moment when it happened. I try to let you/my followers and customers be part of this by sharing my story of the image. This is also done in-house.
Besides the story each artwork sold comes with a certificate of authenticity which certifies that it is an original piece of art, printed on archival paper and being part of a limited edition.
I also approve each artwork before it gets shipped/sent out to the gallery and personally number and sign the print with my original signature.
Last year I have decided to introduce a square format to my Pride of Africa Collection because I felt that certain captures just worked better with this format. Some of these images were exhibited at Martin Osner Gallery in Cape Town but you can also view them on my website or get an inspiration here:
After lots of travelling beginning of the year the other half of the year will be more focused on work in my studio, including research for upcoming trips. More details to follow next month.
