Covid-19 Lockdown 1 - We are now going on local trips... Join me on a photographic trip..
I am now able to take you on a photographic trip of Johannesburg and Soweto due to the Lockdown 1 official protocols.
Please join me on a trip and enjoy what is on offer in Johannesburg and in Kliptown, Soweto.

What COVID-19 rules should the clients stick to during the tour.

  • First off, I am vaccinated with the Phizer vaccination.
  • Prior to each trip we take, the vehicle will be cleaned and sanitized for the trip.  This is done for every trip to ensure sanitization.
  • In my vehicle, we will supply as I do all my guests, masks and sanitizer.  Sanitizers are placed on both sides of the doors of the guests.
  • Before getting into my vehicle, we will sanitize all hands.
    During the trip we will come into contact with people and we will as much as possible keep to social distancing.  Children may come and do an elbow greeting.
  • We will take sanitizer with us always.

Please Note: All precautions will be taken but it must be recognized that there is a World Pandemic and I or anyone cannot be responsible in the case of contacting Covide-19.
It can be contracted on the way to the airport,on a plane or anywhere. BUT with the right attitude and precautions, It can be very much avoided.

Take a daily trip Photographc and Video trips into Soweto & Other Townships such as Alexandra and Diepsloot, South Africa, as a photojournalist and discover exciting happenings in the Townships.

Added to the trip is the joy of helping young children and the elderly, as we bring books, crayons or anything that will bring some upliftment to the people of the community.

As we set out we plan a theme or just go with the visual flow of the township. It could be people staring out their shack windows, residents with umbrellas (see here) or growing food or whatever we decide.
I photograph, you photograph or video shoot and at the end of the trip, you will receive a dropbox link with photos of the trip that I have taken of you..

We discuss what makes great photo! Improve on photography while enjoying South African township life.
If you want more, we can combine street art, food and get a feeling of living in one of Africa's largest city, Johannesburg as an add-on to your Township experience.

Join us up to 6 people per group. Bring your cameras, video cameras and smart phones! Most of all, bring your creativity and meet the people of South Africa!!
