Tyrone Nell & Nic During's first photo-shoot together!

Recently I had a shoot lined up with Cape Town based stylist Jade Campbell, photographer Lauren Fletcher and makeup artist, Bianca Comer who I had never worked with before, I was really excited about shooting with fresh talent again. After chatting to them for a while I had the idea of getting Nic involved, I thought it was a great opportunity for him to try something that he had not done before and then also for us to get some shots together.

Nic is quite content with studying to be a CA, but nonetheless, it was something fun for us to do together and for him to experience, so he jumped on board.

The location we used was the beautiful, Glen Boutique Hotel. Nic set aside most of his morning to shoot with me and then he had to head off and go and do some more studying while I carried on shooting. 

Hope you guys enjoy some of the shots below and be sure to follow us on Instagram and Twitter :0) Also check out the pages of the amazing peeps we worked with!

Lightly Sparkled Launch With 4th Street Wine in Cape Town

This past weekend Nic and myself popped by the 4th Street, lightly sparkled launch that was held at the East City Studios in Cape Town. The PR agency, GirlAbout Town did a fantastic job at hosting and entertaining guests such as celebrity photographer Denzil Jacobs, Clouds Drummond from the andlollipops blog, pro surfer turned model Roxy Louw, Frank Muggeridge, producer Matthew Hallett, fashion blogger Jasna Zellerhoff from Fashion Jazz and television and radio presenter Kia Johnson for the evening.

With a 1950s inspired glamour theme, think polka dots, head bands, mini skirts with an added dash of 4th street’s signature pink and throw in some jazz and swing music, the evening most certainly topped my weekend.

The first time I got to have a glass of 4th Street wine was at the Grape Day Out event, recently held in Stellenbosch, however the ‘lightly sparkled’ range had not yet been launched. We literally purchased 6 bottles of wine, the sweet red, sweet rose and sweet white.

Admittedly, I don’t fall into the brand’s target market, however I can see why the brand’s fun, flirtatious and ‘girly’ identity appeals to the young female millennial consumer. With that said, I do prefer the sparkled range to the still range, the bubbles tend to diffuse the sweetness of the wine, which allows the taste to gently settle on ones taste buds.

Guests were entertained by the new retro band, 'ShoowopShop' formed by Flash Republic’s, Tamara Dey, with Mariechan Luiters and Melissa Allison. We even managed to sneak in a couple of selfies with my new selfiestick!
