365 DAYS IN INFRARED BY KATE DAVIES

  • 28th Jan 2015

Next week Thursday, Kate Davies will be exhibiting all the images from her #365daysininfrared project in our Church Studio for one night only.

Kate Davies 365 Infrared photography Exhibition at Roodebloem Studios

Kate started her 365 project on 4 January 2014. A friend told her about the official 365 challenge, which is a worldwide phenomenon, but Kate is one of the few photographers to shoot in infrared and her circular format makes her collection even more distinctive.

First of all, she can’t see through her viewfinder while shooting in infrared, so a lot of guesswork is involved and the circular crop requires completely different composition to a camera’s rectangle or Instagram’s square format.
In terms of subject matter, the project is a window into Kate’s life and her images include

Who is your model?

We shot with Mariska Engelbrecht from Fanjam. She is one of their freshest faces. This was also her very first editorial, so it was really exciting to take a risk and give her that breakthrough.

BLACK & BLUSH STYLED BRIDAL SHOOT

  • 1st Oct 2014

Our Church Studio is still available as a venue for wedding ceremonies but this styled bridal shoot took place in our Drive-In photographic studio. Photographer Lindie Meyer took advantage of the seasonal nature of photography in Cape Town and how in winter you get the chance to sink your teeth into creative projects like this one.

Explaining the rationale behind the shoot Lindie said, “I got the idea for this shoot while browsing Pinterest and saw a beautiful editorial of a model wearing an over the top black wedding dress. I had the idea do a shoot with two very contrasting ‘personalities’ – The Dark Bride & The Blush Bride. Our dark bride is really edgy, and really doesn’t care about what is traditionally regarded as beautiful, she lives live to the beat of her own drum but doing it with such ease. Our blush bride, equally as beautiful takes trends and

Inspiration for shoot?

I was inspired by the rise of minimalism, androgyny, paired back design and classic staples to tie in to our iconic August issue. The idea of not forcefully dressing like a woman to feel like a woman is the here and now!
