The next few weeks you’re going to see a series of photos taken from the Drakensberg. The mountain range, which translated into English means the ‘dragon mountains’, is one of South Africa’s iconic landscapes. Home to a multitude of heritage sites the mountain ranges have a distinct face that can leave a hiker walking for days. The Drakensberg never fails to surprise the photographer, with a new photo around every corner.
So you’re thinking “wow these photo’s are really nice?”
Ryan and Brigitte thought so too. So if you’re living in Johannesburg and want to try something fun and different drop Jay an email on firstname.lastname@example.org (or fill out this easy e-form below) and have your own memorable moments captured and printed. It’s the perfect gift to give someone for a present.
Congratulations to the happy couple Ryan and Brigitte on their Engagement once again.

So the family, creeps and I went on a fun night hedge journey. Maize Mazes hosts the nighttime treasure hunt through a winding bamboo forest. It’s mainly made for kids but was actually quite a challenge finding all the clues in the allotted time. Anyhow is was a good chance to practice my low light photography and once it got dark test out the high ISO capabilities of the Canon Mk ii which are remarkably better than my old camera the Canon 500D.
In the end an overall pleasing result.
Gone shooting! While other people fish, play xbox or watch TV I’ve been busy photographing the northern suburbs of Johannesburg. I thought this image scene perfectly described the idea of an artificial landscape where both man and nature co-exist.

Having completed my honours programme in Journalism at the University of the Witwatersrand I have finally been able to return to the streets and continue doing what I love; exploring and photographing.
Since the beginning of the year I started with this idea of exploring Johannesburg’s Suburban Jungles. This was after I noticed abandoned plot of land among all these up-market, high end developed properties. I remember very clearly jumping the fence and feeling like I had been transported to another world.
Johannesburg is the largest man made forest in the world, with a greater density of foreign trees than anywhere else in the world. But living in this complicated city it is easy to forget that the environment it is one of the most important and unique characters of the city. People go about their lives and with of the passage of time spaces become forgotten. Nature comes back to reclaim the forgotten spaces and then is cut down again when humans want to move back into it. In Johannesburg one is able to see how there is a constant fight between how humans and nature interact with each other
