Back from The States

Been back from the States for around two weeks - What an amazing trip, shot a wedding in New York and then ran the NYC Marathon, an unbelievable experience!  We then flew across to San Francisco to meet the Marketing director for Lowepro Sam Marsh, a wonderful person, who was leaving the next day to photograph Polar Bears(so jealous)  - Now that is a beautiful city!!

From there we drove down to meet Bill Hurter from WPPI and Rangefinder fame, one of the most selfless people around! Stay at a friend Jason's house on Malibu Beach, it was surreal!!
                                   This is Andrea, having a moment watching the sunset.

Got back to SA and hit the ground running, with a Wedding Workshop in Johannesburg - Thanks to Jacques Weyers for the inspiration for this shot, shot using cellophane to create this image.

The Photo-Film Expo

Wow - I am exhausted!!  What a great weekend!  Thanks so much to all of you for coming to chat, I had a lot of fun.  Getting back to the office this morning was really weird - so quiet!  Three weeks to go and then off to New York for a wedding and the NY Marathon,  but most importantly my visit to B&H!!

I have just picked up the completed discs of my new DVD - "The London Sessions" from the editors,  It was an exhausting process, but well worth it!  Elysia, the editor worked tirelessly and managed to create a great product - Thanks so much! It will be launched in Johanesburg this weekend at the Photo-Film Expo and will be available on Amazon soon.  Check out the trailer above.

Brett Florens' Guide to Photographing Weddings Available 6 October

I have just heard that my book has landed in Buffalo New York and will be available next week.  It has taken four years to create and this is so surreal for me - Thanks so much to all at Amherst that made this possible!  Thanks to Bill Hurter of Rangefinder for your support, but most importantly to Andrea, my wife for being there from the beginning.  I will have it on sale at the Photo and Film Expo in JHB from the 15-17 October, if you are around come and see me at the Nikon Booth,  I am so excited!!

I am unforgettable

After the Bedlam of the London trip, I thought that I would come back to a relaxed laid-back Durban, not so!  The editing of the DVD is going really well and should be ready for the Photo and Film expo, but some really exciting news is that my book has landed in NY and I will have copies available in JHB for the expo.  On another note I just received my copy of Nikon Pro Magazine - I wrote a small piece on the state of the industry and it is featured in the mag - how amazing is that!

Nikon have used one of my pics in their - "I am" campaign, this is seriously the biggest highlight of my career!  Thank you to all at Nikon!

Just got back from a busy European Summer

Just got back from a great European Summer - Amazing wedding in Spain that got me a Hello magazine cover - very cool!!

Shot 250 families and  a cracker ad campaign for Mitchell's and Butler!  It was a very productive time and amazing to be in the thick of it!  I was fortunate enough to be interviewed by Nikon Pro magazine for their summer publication.  I recorded the Wedding Workshop in London so now have 20 hours of footage to edit before 10 October!  I will be at the Photo and film expo in JHB from the 15-17 October so if you are around it will be cool to hook up!

The pic below is Paul my assistant's  - his first time in Paris, great shot Paul!!
