Black Coffee 2009

Black Coffee recently won the Mercedes Benz South Africa Award, in fashion design. I was lucky enough to join them in Berlin for their fashion show at Berlin fashion week and shot a backstage documentary which will be featured in this months BDFM's Wanted Magazine which will launch this weekend. You can get a copy in the Weekender newspaper.

For the Berlin fashion week, Black Coffee catalog I did a shoot here in Johannesburg which was featured on the cover and inside. We also got the front cover of one of Berlins biggest newspapers 'Die Welt.'

I have uploaded the images used in the catalog and some images of the actual media that we where featured in. Have a look below and please send feedback.

Love Jozi Hillbrow

Last month, I shot the new Love Jozi T-Shirt campaign. The new range is 'The Hilbrow range' so we decided to shoot the range in the middle of the infamous part of Johannesburg city. The first image in the series below is a replication from a old image of Hillbrow we found in a now historic book. We found the same spot in the now dilapidated High Point which used to be the centre of the Johannesburg night life.

The rest of the shoot was shot around the area in other aesthetically pleasing and relevant spots.

To see the range and the rest of the shots please check out
