Sappi’s Ngodwana nursery embracing Ellepot

This was a scorcher of a day! 42 degrees in White River and spending most of that time in tunnels photographing Ellepot seedlings being planted and grown at the Sappi’s Ngodwana Nursery … a day’s sauna session and some steamed up lenses to say the least! But what an impressive

Dairy photo Gallery of Rockfontein Farm

I have visited many farms. With each farm I visit, I often get to observe where the priorities are of the farmer other than the running of a farm. With Rockfontein farm, I immediately noticed the staff and the atmosphere on the farm. It’s a happy place here.

Farm Photography; Dipping Cattle

It’s been a while since I did this shoot, completely unexpected and not planned. I met these farmers on an Eastern Cape agricultural road trip by chance and was invited to their remote farm in the Amathole mountains to document a day of dipping. It’s turned out to be one

2021 Pannar Vrystaat photography tour; Wheat farming and LFC Milling

A few belated photos of my Pannar Vrystaat photography tour earlier this year. Once again I have had the incredible opportunity to do photography for Pannar Seed’s annual catalogue and calendar. This year I toured the Freestate and had the pleasure of photographing some of the best farming estates in

enroute home via rhodes and naudes nek

I’ve just been on an agricultural shoot to East London for Ellepot. It made perfect sense to take the long way home, passed Rhodes village in the Eastern Cape Drakensberg, via Naude’s Nek and back to KZN. This place pulls me back. I feel most at peace here. There is

Piet, maize and a pitbull

I love my shoots through Pannar Seed, mostly because it’s a doorway into another whole world…and this time, it was into the Vrystaat! I have to be very honest here. I am born and bred in KwaZulu-Natal and my Afrikaans is appalling! Dismal. Laughable and maybe even insulting to some!

Ellepot root stock for Hayter’s Forestry planting operations in Ixopo

I’ll be doing a series of shoots for Ellepot in the coming months. I kicked off the series with the Hayter’s/Ixopo contracting planting operations. Sutherland Seedlings supplied them with Ellepot Eucalyptus root stock. It was a perfect day for planting; wet, misty and rainy! Ellepot is a propagation system with
