What is it like to live with someone who eats, breathes and sleeps photography and has done so all his life?  I know.  I’m the wife of the photography fanatic.  I love to pick out ‘photofanatic’ items to share and blog about.  I don’t do tech talk.  My background is in design (graphic and interior). Since my childhood I have been in the study and pursuit of making art, a skill which I feel can not live without.  My day to days are spent being Mom, artist, designer and grounder, I hope, of that tech talking photography breathing husband of mine.

  • The Photographer Found and Wild life Photography Growing up in South Africa I have seen way, way, way too many wildlife pictures.  I detest them.  One lion picture looks like them all.  Dry grass and lion. Dry grass and bush pig.  Muddy buffalo stares you down.  Spots in tree equals Leopard.  I yawn before I’ve even open a wildlife calendar. Because of my attitude ...
  • Phantom Origin Images
    I received an email this week which captured a unique African wildlife moment.

It was the kind of person that goes up to a photographer and ...

  • Crazy photo find
    While stumbling through cute camera charms for my previous post I found a necklace to express true devotion to the craft of photography.  Yes it is a vintage light meter plate hang around a neck quite elegantly on a gold chain.  A conversation piece if ever there was one and a declaration of your love ...

  • The Photographic Spouse The house went quiet. My Husband had left for work. There was no camera talk and no photographic debate.
    I had specially laid in bed longer to hear his new idea as it babbled forth from the bathroom with tones of early morning excitement.
    “A new camera,” and with that announcement his earplugs went in and he ...
