I have always loved rock music and band and show photography was one of my earliest influences when I started shooting! Images of my favourite rock bands in magazines like Kerrang, Melody Maker and Rolling Stone held me captivated for ages. I also always wanted to play the guitar but felt that I was untalented. This I have finally overcome and started learning to play 6 months ago. To date I can play a few of my fave 90s songs; Oasis – Wanderwall, Goo Goo Dolls – Slide and Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars! You gotta start somewhere 😉
I am fortunate to be the photographer of choice for the Cape Town’s best (big) music venue, The Grand Arena @ Grand West! and as such, I get to photograph some incredible local talent; vokofpolisiekar, Anro Carstens, Johnny Clegg, Mac Stanley, The Parlatones, Shaun Jacobs, Micasa and many more english and afrikaans musicians from many different genres to amazing international acts like Brian Adams, Roxette, Kylie Minogue, Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer, Maroon 5, Adam Lambert, Smokie, Janet Jackson, Nickleback and The Kings of Chaos to name a few!
Here are a few images from some of those shows… (I will update as they happen)
