My latest Collaboration


It seemed a bit too onerous a favor, to ask my friend to always take my pictures. So I took it upon myself to find a good freelance photographer, that will take pictures of my daily outfits. Finally in December of last year, I managed to find a great one and we started our collaboration officially this month.


Our first photoshoot was in town at the public library next to the famous Long street, it was one of those days when Capetown was extremely windy, but we did not let that stop us from having an amazing and fun shoot. Regardless of the wind obstacle, we managed to capture beautiful pictures. I love how she knows how to capture my body and also what angles to take from, somehow you can see my mood through her pictures.



If you take blogging as important and serious as I do, and want to eventually make money with it, it’s imperative that you take very good quality pictures, not only does your blog look professional, but it will work in your favor in getting a brand/s to collaborate with you.

Make sure you collaborate with a photographer that shares the same vision as you, and understands what you are trying to achieve with your pictures and your blog, in that way you work well together without any misunderstandings.
