  • WELCOME!

    Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog.

    Here you will see what I am up to, I try and keep my blog updated with recent shoots that I have done or any exciting news I have.

    As a photographer I am not big on words but prefer to convey myself through photographs. So please enjoy scrolling through my images.

    The photo on the right is of myself with my family taken while we were on holiday a little while ago. I put the camera on a tripod and used the "timer" function to be able to be in the picture. I always try update our family photos as I know our kids are growing and changing so quickly.

Photography Course in Mageobaskloof

Last Saturday I ran my Photography for Beginners Course in Magoebaskloof.  I was joined by a lovely group of ladies who wanted to take more control of their cameras and understand how to better create beautiful images.  The first section of the course was spent explaining the camera, the settings and understanding all about the exposure triangle.   This gorgeous girl below was there while her Mommy took the course so she modeled for us and showed us a few of her gorgeous smiles as we practiced the Aperture part of the course.

After lunch we spoke about other factors to consider when taking photographs, the ladies learnt about some rules of photography as well as ways of drawing the viewers eye to the part of the image we want to them to look at.   We then used my 3 year old daughter to model for us so we could practice what had been taught.

Some kind words:

“The class was informative and hands-on and set at exactly the right level, it was relaxed enough to encourage group participation and questions.  I will definitely recommend the class.” – Ruth

“I had no knowledge about a camera whatsoever.  I really learned and understood the information.  I know that I will have to practice a lot to apply the knowledge.” – Charlene

“Wow Penny you are an excellent teacher.  You take time with each of your students.  Being a complete beginner in photography I felt special.  Thank you so much.” – Petronella

Blight Extended Family Photoshoot

For some families with siblings or children living on the other side of the country it isn’t often that they are able to get together.  So when this wonderful family got together one long weekend the organized a photoshoot to document this special time and I am so grateful that they asked me to take photographs for them.  I loved this shoot and the challenge of getting over excited kids to relax enough to get a photograph that Granny will cherish.

Du Toit Family Photoshoot

This lovely family invited me to their home to do their photoshoot.  What a stunning area to live in, we were spoilt for choice of where to take their photographs and managed to get a good variety of images for them.

Strydom Family Photos

I met up with this lovely family one afternoon in Magoebaskloof a while ago, they wanted a beautiful outdoor setting for their photographs, those of you that know Magoebaskloof know that it isn’t difficult to find a beautiful spot, in fact, we are so spoilt for choice here the problem is trying to narrow down the location to choose.  We went to a few different spots on this one farm for their photographs and got a variety of beautiful images.  They had their own flower crowns made just for the shoot.

Cornish Mini-Shoot
