Visit to Boulders Beach and Cape Point
Saturday morning, and the weather is looking fine!
In actual fact, it was an amazing day in terms of the weather, and to top it off, my photo-shoot went really well.
I was photographing a family of 4 from abroad during their visit our Cape's stunning peninsula. While the family opted to keep their images private and offline (which I respect) I thought I'd share some of the scenery we saw along the way - it really was a stunning day out!
I shoot photography sessions in and around Cape Town in places like Noordhoek, Simonstown, and Cape Point along the peninsula, as well as Constantia, and as far out of town as Stellenbosch, and Franschoek in the winelands, and sometimes in Paternoster and Langebaan on the West Coast, or out in the Cederberg.
In the Mother City we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to awesome travel locations! Here’s a list of three places you should visit, and where I will be spending some time again this year - check them out!
An absolute pleasure travelling around the Cape with Marco Selvaggio - Italian percussionist and Hang player extraordinaire. We took a ride along the fairest Cape in the world!
Scroll to the end of the post for a list of my recommended places to visit. By no means an exhaustive list, but nevertheless useful. Please keep in mind that it’s best to travel in a 4x4 or raised vehicle - some roads may be smooth but others quite rough.
A styled friends portrait session on the Bloubergstrand shoreline, which started out windy and epic - transitioning into amazing light and an open field bursting with beautiful textures and a massive dose of neo-wanderlust magic.

A fun Summer portrait session in Kalk Bay’s exotic Cape to Cuba restaurant and bar, in Cape Town - South Africa. I must-visit stop when you’re in town!
An African cycle adventure. And many a traveller who’s stoked about their tour! That’s what I’ve wanted to capture. That epic story. The exhilaration of the adventure | Bike and Saddle tours Cape Town

A tribute to the Wine-loving, people-pleasing, prompt and professional, friendly and outgoing travel guides who eat breathe and live the wine experience in and around the Winelands and are filled with as much character as the wines they so love to present at elegant each estate and tasting room.
I mean, scenic tours, good food, one-on-one photography lessons, African wildlife, cycling, and wine! What could be better than that!? Well, that would be chocolate. And in Franschhoek, there's plenty of that too!
If you don't know what they are, you're missing out! South Africans and visitors alike enjoy the wonders each has to offer. Essentially a roadside farm stall, these little hot spots of activity and cheer often house innumerable goodies and fresh produce.
Thanks to the Truth team for showing us around and for being such awesome hosts. Here are some shots from Steph & Sixtine's visit to Cape Town & their Truth Coffee experience.
I wasn't actually there to shoot landscapes. And without my tripod, it was tricky in the wind - but worth it! Thanks, Devon Valley… you did not disappoint!
As a “white guy” from the suburbs, who has travelled much, yet has never ventured into the townships... Khayelitsha was a wonderland of details, an assault on the senses, and all-around very very interesting. Did I enjoy the short visit? Absolutely!
A recent trip with Bike & Saddle took me back to the West Coast National Park. A place I haven't been back to for quite some time - must be 10 years now. It's really quite beautiful! Have you been?
I recently visited the !Khwa Ttu Cultural Village and Educational Centre on South Africa's West Coast while touring with Bike & Saddle. A wonderful experience and well-run facility.
There’s something wonderful about being able to head off on a leisurely cycle through 1600 hectares of family-owned reserve which is home to some of Africa’s greats such as Lion, Buffalo, White Rhino, and Giraffe.
A windy but clear Spring day here in Cape Town meant for beautiful views, blue skies, and all-around awesome weather for our little road-trip around the Fairest Cape in the World!
