Ok, so maybe the title of this post should really have been “photo” rather than “photos”.
I was in Cape Town a few weeks back to shoot a wedding for a client, wedding was prosponed at the last minute unfortunately.
Rather than be dampend by that, I put together 2 professional full day photo shoots, working with an amazing South African makeup artist/ stylist and top models from Germany, the USA, Spain and South Africa. I was able to build an amazing collection of pictures for my clients and my personal portfolio.
None of my crew and models had ever worked with a professional photographer from Nigeria so it was a whole new experience for them.
Being a Nigerian wedding photographer, shooting weddings in Nigeria, the photography scene in South Africa actually caught me off guard. One thing is certain though, I will be back in Cape Town at least 3 more times this year.
From my 2 days of photography I worked with only the best quality gear. For 3 days I has a Hasselblad all to myself and got to understand what all the “fuss” was about. The Hasselblad is a beast of a camera. While it was a bit tricky in the beginning, it quickly fit like a glove after a couple of clicks.
Unfortunately I am only posting one picture now, much more is certain to follow as I have about 4,000 images from the shoot, I have videos of behind the scenes and interviews as well but right now I have to bury my head in the heap of Nigerian wedding photos I have to put together.
One of the themes of the photo shoot was “playful and doll”, the below picture was taken from that collection.
