The whole world has come to Ballito…and I have changed. I now refer to GP number plate wearing vehicles as “Vaalies” and I find myself judging sunburnt holidaymakers wearing luminous clothing. Traffic has reached epic proportions, and it took a whopping 20 min to get to work yesterday! Crazy times. The heat has arrived on the coast, and while the Nikon holds up the professional look on the front end, I admit to having done a shoot in my flip flops recently.
But from the relative quiet of the PeppermintPix airconditioned studio I have managed to put the finishing touches onto my new blog, and use the first bit of down time in months to assess the year as well as consider how to tackle 2013.
2012 was great for Chris Allan Photo. Once again we managed to deliver high end photography to a wide range of clients, that had us shooting in Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town, Knysna, Zimbabwe and Equatorial Guinea.
Many of our clients have been with us for over 3 years now, and we have attracted the attention of some other potential big clients for next year… but more on that when it is a sure thing
Here is a selection of images from a few of the shoots:
The New Fego and Europa menus are in my opinion the best that have ever been put together, and I think the images turned out really well.
Red Rabbit is a restaurant in the very slick new shopping centre Nicolway in Joburg. I covered the beautiful design of the establishment done by Shelley at Pallette.
Equatorial Guinea. A beautiful country and my first introduction to equatorial Africa. Humidity, tropical rainstorms and a fairly dicey political scenario made shooting a challenge, but with the help of a fascinating expat community we got some crackers.
