Commercial Commission
For BODYTEC

BODYTEC is South Africa’s leading EMS training studio and I shoot much of their marketing and campaign work for them.
One project I really enjoy is their series of environmental portraits called I am BODYTEC. The images feature either BODYTEC clients or franchisee owners along with their personal BODYTEC stories.

This is Linda

I met and photographed Linda Prost at her home in Pretoria in February 2016. Linda is a triathlete who trains for Ironman among other events and is a BODYTEC client. Find her write up here.

“The Housewives”, Private Commissions:
This is Elizabeth

(Note: “The Housewives” was a term I fondly coined in 2006 after I started getting shoot requests from private, individual women who became my clients. Many of the women who contacted me were married and in their mid 30’s and were doing the shoots as gifts to their husbands. The folder in my archives is still called this and so I’ve stuck to it, in part just for the irony: most of these women are not “housewives” at all, but strong independent and forward thinking women who I have had the honour of documenting.

All are private commissions and the demographic has changed substantially over the years. Some I’m still in contact with, others I’ve totally lost contact with, some have become friends, some may wish not to have their real names used, others don’t mind, some may have their faces obscured for privacy reasons, others have generously shared their experiences of being photographed.)

This shoot wasn’t done so much as a Housewife commission but just for fun and it ended up being featured in a 2006 (I think) edition of Glamour magazine. Once I find the magazine, which is packed away somewhere, I’ll update this post with a scan of the sweet article.

A Magazine: Playboy (South Africa), October, 1996

This issue of Playboy is a South African edition! Playboy South Africa has lived and died twice in Africa now, once in the 1990’s and once in the 2010’s. This magazine comes from the former years.

I thought this editorial of Sam Fox was really beautifully and tastefully shot.

Below and above shows the playmate of the month, Miss October’s, centrefold in the magazine.

The above and below “Cuba Libre!” editorial in B&W is also really beautifully shot.
