Chanique Fourie {Portfolio Photo Shoot}

Groenkloof Nature Reserve

Being a photographer, I always encourage people to go for a photo shoot… it’s very important to capture those memories. The irony is, being a photographer, I never go for a photo shoot myself! Probably for the very same reason a mechanic’s car is always broken. 🙂

I met Chanique a while ago over coffee and questions like,”if time runs out and I can’t photograph the groom, will you be able to’, ‘what type of camera gear do you have’ and ‘do you have a website where I can view some of your work’ were topics of conversation.

Needless to say, I was looking for an assistant if ever David couldn’t help me out. Arriving home after the meeting, I was all smiles and David knew, we clicked!

We both needed new photos of ourselves, so the obvious thing to do was to photograph each other (self-portraits is so tricky)! 😉 We had so much fun doing this, that I’m thinking it should become a regular thing.. Next time, we’ll bring the guys with!

Chanique is at her happiest, with her camera (or any camera for that matter) in her hand!

Wardrobe change, a-la-Chanique style!

Here I was playing with my 50mm at f1.4 a bit and it makes the background look almost like a painting.

The many faces of Chanique!

To get to know Chanique, here is her website:
