As I explained yesterday, I made two separate series of the shoot with our friends Mischa and Jonathan. Here is the colour edit. Mischa and Jonathan liked the idea of having a vintage look in an urban setting, so added a metallic blue tone to the pics, while trying to preserve the beautiful orange and […]
Recently, our friends Mischa and Jonathan got engaged. I got the honour of taking a few pics with them. They wanted to go for an urban vibe. The nice thing with Cape Town is that the surrounding mountains are always lurking, so in several pics, you can see them peeking in. In case you haven’t […]
I had passed by World of Birds a few times before, but never entered it. World of Birds is the largest bird park in Africa and hosts over 400 birds and small animal species. It’s a sanctuary, so of course the animals are caged in, but they’ve tried their best to give them some decent […]
When I arrived in South Africa about three years ago, fair trade was not really a consideration here. Very few brands were offering clear information about their supply chains and the control or transparency of those chains by external organisations. In the last few years, there has been quite a big change. Why should you care? […]
At ScaleConf 2016 in Cape Town, I was invited to speak in front of a large audience of developers. I focused on one of the biggest passions of most developers (not): support. However, while devs might not get excited about support, they all understand the importance of it. With having WooCommerce active on 1+ million […]
Follow along with the workshop I gave at WordCamp Cape Town last September.
Even though I have definitely picked up some South African lingo, most locals still hear straight away that I’m not a national (yet). Once that is clear and they understand that I’m not Dutch or German, but Belgian, they ask me how long I’ve been in South Africa (since August 2013). The follow-up question to that […]
My in-laws live about 20 mins. drive from the Crocodile Bridge entry to Kruger National Park. So every time we visit we normally sneak in a visit, and on the day before Christmas (hence the “kind of”) we spent the day in the park. I decided to make this my first black-and-white edit of Kruger Park. […]
Kim’s dad lives close to Kruger National Park and it is always an absolute joy to venture into the park.
The parents of friends have a house in Greyton, so we could have a cheap weekend away there. Great company and great scenery in this beautiful little town.
Even though I had seen many parts of South Africa, I had never been to the Western Coast, so for our birthday weekend, Kim and I went to the peaceful Paternoster. The winter sun gave a lot of great light.
In 2012 I came to South Africa for the first time. Kim and I did a road trip along these places: Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Hermanus, Plettenberg Bay, Coffee Bay, Sani Pass (Lesotho), Swaziland, Marloth Park, Inhambane (Mozambique), Kruger National Park, Waterval Boven, Johannesburg. It was a great intro to what is now my home country.
