Recently Sappi has embraced the Ellepot technology and has started growing and planting biodegradable Ellepot seedlings. I took these photos for Ellepot South Africa. This gallery includes Sappi’s planting shed with their new Ellepot machine, their tunnels and their forestry planting operations. Take a look at this impressive operation! ***These images are licensed to Ellepot… Read More
Last week I got to go to some places in South Africa that I have never been to before! I went on tour to the likes of Parys, Nigel and Delmas for Pannar Seed where I photographed sunflowers, maize and soya crops. I also got to experience my first Pannar Extravaganza show! Every year, Pannar… Read More
When I lived in Mozambique a number of years ago, I published a blog called ‘Who put your prawns on your plate?’ This series of images reminds me of that blog. It’s a series of images documenting the day the potato was planted to the day it was harvested, washed and packaged for our consumption.… Read More
I got another fantastic opportunity with AgDevCo this December and went right across to Senegal to photograph one of their company partners, CNT S.U.A.R.L. CNT are an agricultural company that specialise in farming rice. They operate 7000 hectares of rice in the Senegal Valley region. 6000 of these hectares are operated by the local smallholder… Read More
BOOM, 2020 is here! The start of a new decade! As so many of us do, I have identified a few goals that I will be working on – most notably to go full speed ahead with agricultural photography, both commercial and for NGO organisations. 2019 was a good year in that it helped me… Read More
Just before heading off to Senegal to photograph rice, I stopped in at Loch Buighe farm to photograph some brushwood being burnt. I’ve been documenting Loch Buighe farm over the year and all farm operations must be captured! It’s been a great learning experience for me to have so many different operations going on in… Read More
Another lot of Avo’s being planted in Ixopo, KwaZulu-Natal. I look forward to the day when there is an abundance of Hass Avo’s for sale! Ixopo’s agricultural landscape is rapidly changing, with many farmers in the district investing in Avo and Lemon orchards!
I woke up very early this morning to capture the sun rise over Ixopo and onto Loch Buighe farm. I’d hoped to get some pictures of the avo’s too. But the weather had other plans today. This misty, wet weather is quite common here in Ixopo and probably why this area is such a big… Read More
We’re just emerging from a severe drought. As I speak, it’s bucketing with torrential rain and it’s come in the nick of time! Whether ‘flooding’ is the lesser evil, we will know soon but I think all farmers in KwaZulu-Natal are sighing deep breaths of relief that the rain is at least here. It’s a… Read More
Let’s be honest, men (in general) do not like to be photographed. Then you add a ‘farmer’ to the equation and you get the next level of photo phobia! Their fear of a camera is almost palpable! Those sweat droplets from above the brow are usually not because it’s a hot day…it’s the picture of… Read More
Another lot of Avo trees being planted on Loch Buighe Farm. These Avo’s are from Sutherland Seedlings in Ixopo and were planted as Ellepots – a paper pot opposed to plastic bags. Ellepot seedlings and fruit trees are known to be healthier and have a faster root development, with more uniform plants while improving crop… Read More
