Photo shoot in Maboneng
July 17, 2012
, , ,

I needed to get some professional pics taken, and my amazing photographer friend Jackie Hulme offered to take some for me.  It was just our luck that it happened to be one of the coldest days in Joburg.  Braving Friday afternoon traffic we rushed down to the inner city at 4pm just in time for an hours worth of light.  This is one of the pics (the rest will be featured in a magazine shortly, details coming soon…)

 I was really impressed by these pics and how quickly we got them dome  Jackie was  so quick and focused – in under an hour she managed to get some fabulous shots of me.  It did help that Maboneng, Jozi’s fabulous inner-city art precinct provided a fabulous urban backdrop. Maboneng really is one of my favorite spaces in inner city Jozi.  We were also lucky enough to access the rooftop of the funky 12 Decades Hotel, where Jackie tried her hardest to take some shots despite the  an icy cold wind ripping pushing us around on the exposed rooftop. The view from the rooftop was spectacular! Unfortunately we didn’t manage to get any decent pics 🙁  Just guess we’ll have to go back then, really didn’t realise that photoshoots could be that much fun! (Note to self: If you decide to go out on a  photoshoot during a cold front, don’t forget the hip flask!)

Thanks Jackie for making me look so glamourous! Jackie is an awesome portrait photographer and knows some fabulous and funky locations around Jozi.  If you’d like to get your portrait taken by Jackie, check out her Facebook page Jackie Hulme Photography
