Lig magazine – September issue

groot marico mampoer photos

Cindy, Aviél and I left our cottage along the Groot Marico river well before first light to spend the morning on a farm in the area, behind the dam. It was fantastic to photograph the morning light for a change, as I usually concentrate on afternoon light. I really enjoyed this work as it is still documentary work, but different in many areas to wedding photography. Other than obviously being a different theme, there are no events that are happening in a certain sequence or at a certain time, which does give you little bit more freedom in how you go about photographing your subjects. I will definitely do this again if I get the opportunity.

In any case, the full article with a decent selection of images can be seen in this months issue of Lig magazine.


A big thank you to Oom Martiens and the rest of the family who were very gracious in showing us such hospitality, it is much appreciated.
