Our Beautiful Country

From our great game reserves and wilderness areas teeming with birds and animals to our beautiful coastline, and spectacular African sunrises and sunsets, South Africa is a photographer’s dream.

Flyball races match two teams of four dogs each, racing side-by-side over a 15.5 m long course. Each dog runs in relay fashion down four jumps, triggers a flyball box releasing the ball, retrieves the ball, and returns over the jumps. The next dog is released but can’t cross the start/finish line until the previous dog has returned.

Time spent at Scottburgh during May produced a wide selection of photographic opportunities. From spectacular sunrises to big waves and even a peek-a-boo session on the beach with the Ghost Crabs.

About me

My love of photography started when I was about 10 years old and I was given a Kodak Box Brownie camera. I spent hours at the Johannesburg Zoo, taking photographs of the animals. Most of the shots were pretty dismal but the bug had bitten.

I then dabbled in photography again in the ‘90’s in the dying days of film, offering product and headshot photography as a service to my clients in my presentation business. And then, in 2016, I decided to get seriously into the wonderful world of digital photography. 

I studied through DPC, a wonderful photographic school, staffed by some of our top professional photographers, and offering in-depth training on just about every aspect of this fascinating discipline. And then ongoing learning on shoots as well as hours and hours of instructive U-Tube videos from some of the best in the business from all over the world. And every day, it is keeping up with the improvements in gear and post production software, to continue to provide an ever improving product to my clients.

Can I help?

To book a shoot with me please give me a call or email me. Or if you are interested in taking up this fascinating hobby and have a whole lot of questions. Such as Where do I start? What gear do I buy? So many options? Does it have to cost so much?

   I’d love to chat, or help if I can, so give me a call or drop me a line. 

You can get me on my cel at 082 568 0245 or mail me at john@johngrif.co.za.
