I’m not going to mess around—yesterday was awesome and all I want to talk about! The scene was the Kranskop Gliding Club at Brits. The occasion was a special open day for various students and interns from previously disadvantaged communities who are part of a couple of programmes to encourage flying as a profession as well as a recreation.

It involved getting more than 30 glider and powered flights done in a day at an airstrip where they usually manage 9. He did it!

The Grade 8s at Max Stibbe Waldorf School put on a performance of ‘The Little Prince’ recently. I was fortunate enough to be able to be there to take some photographs of the evening and what fun it was! As usual at Max Stibbe, there was energy aplenty from the childrenand the performance was great.
Chrystal wanted something funky for her model portfolio so we found a slightly grungy back alley and took some photos using lots of off-camera flash. This was followed up by some funky post-processing, mostly in Lightroom, and we have a result!
