Finally finding some time to update you guys and there’s a lot happening here!
Cape Town has been treating me really well so far. It is an absolutely beautiful place and it’s amazing how many great and interesting people I got to meet in this short time. There are already loads of shootings and projects lined up
A couple of weeks ago while the Double Gravity video went crazy on the net (still wonder how that happened!) Nikon send me a mail if they could make a small interview and ask me a few questions about the Double Gravity series. It is absolutely crazy to see something go viral when you haven’t done more than uploaded it and posted it on Facebook. When all this is topped with a mail like that one, well, what else can you ask for.
The environment in photography has changed fundamentally in the past years and it keeps on changing in the moment I’m writing this. Starting with the costs of gear ending with the social value that is given to the work of a photographer, nothing is like it used to be.
When you browse the web you often come across rules that “lead” you the way to get your creative business running, no matter if you’re a graphic designer, musician, photographer or even any other kind of company. The most useful set of rules that I found til now is this one from Seattle based photographer Chase Jarvis. He breaks it down to 13 rules and every single one of them couldn’t be more clear. Helpful stuff, have a look.

But still, looking back there are three things that I stick to all the time:
BAM! It’s finally here, my blog!
- Yea, I know what you think now.. “Wow, an integrated photography blog, what a breathtaking innovation.” It’s not. I won’t reinvent photography nor do I think that my future posts describe the path to success. The reason why I blog is that there is a bunch of photogs out there who share their knowledge and experience on the web and this is what really helped me find my way out of the jungle of photography when I got started.
I told myself that if I ever feel that there is something that I think is worth sharing, I would do so. So here it is. Feel free to sign up via RSS on the bottom or drop by every now and then. Hope you enjoy it!
