Anna

Whilst taking a rest day from climbing in Oudtshoorn I took a drive down the road and took a shots Anna, a poor farm laborer on a nearby farm. Another reality check on how many people in SA live :(



Welder

A day off from climbing I took shots of Jean Du Preez welding in his workshop in Barrydale.

Cool Like That

Got a shot of Alex Bester on Cool Like That 29/7c+ at the Scoop in Montagu on my recent trip there. I find this crag really difficult to shoot for some reason and still haven't found a way to get the look i want from it. Anyway here's Alex looking focused on his send...

A Perfect Boulder

Some more shots I took of The Hatchling 8A whilst shooting for Adidas. This must be one of the most photogenic boulders in Rocklands.

I shot a tester video clip bouldering with Marijus Smilgelskis this week for a possible future project. Here is the quick and dirty edit with no tricks, color correction or audio mix. Its just footage straight from the camera slapped together in a few hours. If you can select HD on, its better.

Secret Garden

Today I took a rekkie hike with Marijus Smigelskis to look at a secret bouldering area which i'm keen to possibly film. Here are 2 of the test stills shots

experiments in the kloof

I haven't been focusing on climbing shots very much lately. I did however take my camera out the other day whilst Benji de Charmoy was working Wipeout 32/8b at SuperTubes in Montagu. Its not the prettiest piece of rock to shoot so I struggled capturing anything i liked that day. This shot i thought was ok ... there are definitely better places to shoot in Montagu however.
