Publications July Forbes Africa Magazine

Publications in the July edition of Forbes Africa Magazine. It was a busy month. Perhaps the highlights were taking photographs during the Oscar Pistorius case; and my rhino story. The photo essay on Rhinos and gold will be coming soon. I can’t release them until they have been published.

Publications in June Forbes Africa Magazine

Publication grabs from the June edition of Forbes Africa Magazine. You might shoot hundreds of photos for these events, but in the end only a few can be chosen. Fortunately the one’s taken when we were at the Marikana strike is going to go into Forbes Lifestyle as a photo essay, there was so much more to this story than three photos and a few hundred words.
Go out and get the Forbes Africa Magazine June edition to read the articles.


Photographs from the latest strike at Marikana, a platinum mine shaft. Last year, 34 miners were killed after police opened fire on the charging crowd. The story made headlines worldwide. There is a lingering anger among the miners a year later.

The South African government has finally begun to implement renewable energy programmes in the country. One of the largest sectors in round 1 is wind eneregy. I met up with some pioneers in the field Luke Callcott-Stevens and Gavin James to find out how they managed to build a R2.5 billion ($278 million) wind farm. Secretly I am hoping they will invite me to the farm to cover the installation of the turbines later this year.

The international cruise industry is one of the largest earners within the travel sector. But how does is it function along the African costs? There are many unique challenges facing the industry along the continents seas.
