Zimbabwe

Soapy studio shoot...

I am very grateful to the Willowton group for allowing me the opportunity to have so much fun in the studio with such a common household item! Who knew that bars of soap could be such fun to shoot? Throw in a few pieces of coloured paper and the game changes completly! Which one is your favourite?

Strauss Logistics...

Strauss Logistics, one of Zimbabwe’s largest bulk fuel transporters, asked me to help them with some images for their corporate website. The brief was to capture a variety of images of operations at their main depot which included; people at work throughout the various departments, trucks in the yard as well as aerial images of the premises and vehicles. I am very happy with the results which you can see below!

Helping develop Zimbabwe's communities....

During my career as a professional photographer I have been fortunate enough to work with some exceptional organisations and corporates dedicated to uplifting Zimbabwean communities through their Corporate Social Responsibility and community development programmes. Covering these programmes has taken me all over Zimbabwe and I have been fortunate enough to meet some amazing people in areas I had never travelled to before. I always walk away from a trip inspired by the efforts of both the communities and the organisations running the development programmes.

Hot stuff in Harare - Cardamom Restaurant...

I have mentioned this before in some of my food photography blogs, and I am not ashamed to repeat it, my stomach does love a good food photography session! The appreciative grumbles and rumbles certainly did not stay away when I photographed some of the mouth watering dishes at Cardamom Restaurant in Harare recently!

New Interiors for Office Design Co...

Office Design Co are a world class interior design studio in Harare who have been creating beautiful interior spaces for some of Zimbabwe’s largest corporates for over 20 years. So naturally I was thrilled when the directors Olly and Steve asked me to create some images of one of their recent interior designes for CABS bank. The brief was to capture a variety of wide angle shots of the whole interior space as well as a few close detail shots.

A tasty calendar...

I am lucky enough to do a lot of food photography, so I was more than pleased when I was approached by Freddy Hirsch Zimbabwe to help them create images for their 2019 calendar. The meals where prepared by the awesome chefs at The Bistro Restaurant and my good friend Giani DiTano was in charge of the art direction. The brief was to photograph scrumptious dishes of food that showcased the range of Freddy Hirsch spices. I also photographed each spice pack in the studio along with a heaped pile of the spices to showcase the vibrant colours of each spice. I am sure you will agree that the combination of delicious food and vibrant colours complement each other well in the calendar.

Axia Corporation...

Axia Corporation is one of Zimbabwe’s largest corporates with interests in the home furnishings and appliances, automative and distribution markets, so when they asked me to help them create some unique images for their 2018 annual report I was delighted!

The brief was to capture engaging images of each brands’ retail premises, staff and products that encapsulates their commitment to a quality product and service. I spent a day shooting at each brand, starting with the automative giant Transerv which you can see below.

The next day I joined the Axia marketing team at their home furnishing and appliance division TV Sales and Home where we visited a variety of their retail stores to capture the staff, retail spaces and available products.

To cap it all off we spent the day at one of the countries largest fast moving consumer goods distribution companies, Distribution Group Africa. Their distribution centre must be one of the biggest commercial spaces I have ever photographed, with the opportunity to create vast wide angle shots being around every corner! Check out some of the shots in the gallery below.

I would like to thank the marketing and admin folk from Axia as well as all the SBU’s that we visited while shooting for the annual report for their hard work and patience during this frenetic exercise!
