Zebra & Giraffe live at Tanz Cafe

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Shoting photos of live bands always proves to be quite a challenge for me!  I can never decide which lens I wanna use and/or if I wanna use flash or not.  At a recent Zebra & Giraffe show I decided to try something totally different.  My 70-200mm lens!  I realy wasn’t sure how it would work out but I’m glad I tried it as the images came out pretty clear and it was really cool to shoot the band from a distance and not have to battle with the people up front for a spot!  I really had to up my ISO setting quite a bit so I decided to shoot mostly in Black & White.

For the love of Royal Enfield

This is just a photo I took of my Brother in Law, Alan Shenton…  On the day he received his beautiful Royal Enfield Classic 500 motorcycle.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen him quite as happy!  Wishing you many years of enjoyment riding that bike Alan, you deserve it!

Alan and his Guitars

Monday, September 12th, 2011

I can’t remember the last time I met someone that is so passionate about what they do or perhaps I just haven’t.  I spend quite a lot of time at Alan’s house since he is my brother in law but I can honestly say we don’t spend much time speaking to one another and not because we don’t want to, rather cause he is usually playing 1 of his guitars.  On my last visit I decided to get my camera out when I heard him start rocking out in his bedroom.  I shot these photos as the sounds reverberated off the walls and while Alan explained to me the differences between his guitars.  Alan’s band, ‘Zebra & Giraffe’are currently one of the top headlining bands here in South Africa. Check em out!

Zebra & Giraffe with my new Canon 1D

Monday, July 4th, 2011

I just recently replaced all my camera gear after it all got stolen a couple months back.  I used my insurance money to upgrade my camera to the Canon 1D Mark IV.  I have to say, I’m completely blown away by it and it and can’t wait to shoot more photos with it!  My first real use of the camera was a live shot with these guys from Z&G.  It was a late show with difficult lighting but it allowed me to explore the shutter burst of this beast of a camera.  Here are some of my favorite shots from the evening.

Zebra & Giraffe album launch

I was recently invited to shoot some photos of Zebra & Giraffe at the album launch in downtown Johannesburg, at a place called “The Alexander Theater”.  The guys put on a great show and you could see how the crowd had been anticipating the new album, they loved it!  Here are a couple of photos I took.  Enjoy!

Alan T. Shenton

These are some shots I took of Alan with his band ‘Zebra and Giraffe’ at a club in Pretoria called, ‘Tings an’ Times’ which is kind of a Reggae club I guess…  Alan and his band played hard and the crowd loved it and so did I!  Check them out!
