 Photographer at heart-Francois van der Elst

What have you been up to since we last featured you?

My full-time job as a designer keeps me pretty busy, so I haven’t been shooting as much as Id like to be.

Tell us about your new projects?

The first shoot was a test shoot using clothing designed by Earnest Mahomane. We shot it at the Nobu restaurant in the One&Only Hotel with an amazing team..was a very fun shoot.

The 2nd shoot was for a good friend Bonnie-Lee. I don’t usually do maternity shoots as they can be a bit cheesy, so we tried to be a bit more creative with it.


What was the inspiration behind your new work?

The first shoots inspiration was obviously the style of the designers clothing which has a definite oriental feel. So we tried to bring in inspiration from the female samurai (onna-musha).

The 2nd shoot we tried to make the shape of the body the focus.

Whats are your creative plans for 2014?

Plan as many different style shoots as possible.
