In March this year I spent three weeks shooting the stills on set of the Clover Little Big Cook Off for SABC3. What an experience! Worked with a really talented crew and made new friends. Long hours, sore feet, and a puncture in Alexandra one night after leaving the studio… Even managed to get myself locked in the wardrobe room – thank goodness I had my phone with me!

I love working with a large crew on TV sets, it’s completely different to being on a Stills set. It’s great being part of a team, each doing our part to make the production come to life.

It was hard choosing my favourite images, so here is a semi random selection.

The problem with being a photographer is that, there are never any pictures of you.

I love and miss you soo much.
