explosion!


My sister Anastasia got the part to play an action heroin in the music video for South African band 'If 6 was 9'. She got to perform all her own stunts on set which included learning how to shoot real guns which have been modified for film and television sets. The explosion was one of the most exciting scenes for everyone. The catch was that they could only blow the motor bike up once, so she had to act as 'cool' and collected as possible to pull off that bad-ass attitude with out flinching at the hot flames and deafening explosion. Myself and the rest of the crew jumped out of our skins! hence my blurred shots.

Every woman should be beautifully photographed at least once






This beautiful young woman did not hire me to shoot her for a modeling portfolio, she doesn't want to be a model, she simply wanted to celebrate her youth and the confidence she has in her own skin. She said to me on the day of the shoot that she should have done this in her twenties already. She made me think that every woman should be beautifully photographed at least once in her life.
