Speyer is a small beautiful town at the Rhine in the south-west of Germany. With its history of around 2000 years it is also one of Germany’s oldest cities. Even emperors of the Holy Roman Empire and German Kings are buried here and in the middle age it was one of the major cities of Europe. This photo is a scene of a summer party that occurs each year and lasts 5 entire days.
Each time I watch it I remember the warm summer, the frisky mood and the beautiful weather we had :)
The prepwork behind the scenes at Denver Fashion Week, thrown by 303 Magazine. I love going backstage at these things, because there is always something interesting to shoot. Hopefully I'll get to shoot may more of these in the future.

I saw this couple on a rainy day in Times Square and I was lucky enough to get this candid shot. This was their first visit to NYC. I believe this is truly a "Forever Remembered" moment. This photograph reminds me of vintage Stieglitz and my favorite element is how the curve of the umbrella follows the curve of the light pole behind it. This arc is a delicate counterpoint to the vertical buildings and reinforces the romantic mood.
I moved from South Africa to London in 2007 and left my beloved dog (who lives with my parents). Each year I came back to visit and she would bound with joy. She died yesterday - 4 weeks before my trip home. This was the last photograph I ever took of her - last year when I was leaving. Looking back at it now, it almost seems she knew she would not see me again. Gone, but not never forgotten, my loyal friend.
