I have a new lookbook that I have just shot under Churche that I have been dying to share with you guys. It’s for a local label called Mungo that was founded in 1998 by Master Weaver Stuart Holding. It’s based in the seaside town of Plettenberg Bay where they design, weave and make a wide range of homeware products including table linens, bedding, throws, apparel and more.

-Mungo is a unique textile company with the rare ability to create fabrics from the inception of design to the final product. Ensuring all our products are from an ethical and quality beginning.

All I know is they make some of the nicest things I have ever seen and after the shoot, I just wanted to keep everything for myself! Their designs are so beautiful and clean, I love their colour combos and all their pieces not only look but feel amazing. I really had fun shooting this lookbook and I really hope you guys like it.

Kimmy & Bear clothing

Kimmy & Bear clothing

I’m so excited to show you guys this shoot that Churche did for Kimmy & Bear’s first ever clothing collection inspired by their childhood. We were briefed by the team to come up with something whimsical and pretty and so we built three giant animals made out of real foliage that became props and playing companions for everyone on set. We really enjoyed working on this shoot because all the little models and clothes were just too beautiful for words!

The new collection comes from the fact that when the three sisters that make up Kimmy & Bear were young their mom used to dress all of them in matching outfits that she made from patterns very similar to the amazing little outfits you are going to see now.  The collection is reminiscent of those sweet childhood memories that we all have tucked away in some forgotten place. It also makes me wish that I had magical witch powers that turned children’s clothes into big people’s clothes! What about us Kimmy & Bear?!!

Boogieman by Desmond and The Tutus

Boogieman by Desmond and The Tutus


Whhhooo I’m so excited to share Boogieman by Desmond and The Tutus which is their latest music video and song off their album Enjoy Yourself. This dark and humorously creepy video is one that is very close to my heart because I got to co-art direct it with my dear friend and partner in ChurcheAdi Koen. This was such an awesome experience, we got to build the props and put together some of the masks and costumes that are in the video.

So many talented people worked on this project Shane co-directed it with the super talented Greg Rom from Gentlemen Films, Joel Janse Van Vuuren and Anmari Honiball made all the awesome once-off costumes and Devin Toselli was the DOP. I’m so proud of you guys and high-5 to the Jameson INDIE Channel for choosing the best music video concept and for help making this project happen, you guys rule!

The video references the budget horror films of Nollywood and traditional West African garb and the idea centers around Desmond and the Tutus getting kidnapped by the some of the coolest monsters you’ll ever see. I won’t say any more, watch the vide below and if you’re keen to see some behind the scene shots I took on the day, just keep scrolling.

Go Desmond go!  Continue Reading…

Josh Kempen

May 9, 2016


If you haven’t heard the sweet voice of Josh Kempen, then you need to change that as soon as possible. This young man is a talented songwriter and musician and an all round nice guy who we got the opportunity to shoot a couple of weeks back.

Churche together with Josh and his absolutely beautiful girlfriend Bella Pinto spent an afternoon together taking photos, eating apples and just shooting the breeze. This is the second band shoot that Adi and I have done under our Churche label, you can check out the first one here if you’d like.

We really like how these photos came out, hope you like them too. I have included the whole shoot below as well as one of Josh’s music videos because I seriously think that everyone needs to become a fan asap.

Happy Monday!

Maps Maponyane

Adi and I got together with our awesome friend Maps Maponyane the other day to shoot some photos of him. So what do you do when you get the chance to shoot one of the most handsome faces in South Africa? You make the owner of said face jump, high.

This is our latest project for our collective Churche, we played a bit with architecture and shadows and I’m really happy with the way they turned out. We even shot a few fun photos afterwards, because when you have a tripod and a self-timer you gotta do what you gotta do.

Let me know what you think of this project and once again if you’re wanting to work with Churche, all you have to do is drop us a mail for a chat –

Thanks Maps for being such a good sport.

I think about you everyday

March 29, 2016


Adi and I worked on a new project for our creative collective called Churche. We wanted to create a series that we could share everyday for a whole week and we were hoping that people would like them enough to share them too. So thanks to everyone who liked, commented and shared these posts, we really appreciate all the support.

If you guys haven’t seen all of them I have included them all here in the order that they went up and if you would like to follow us on Instagram or Facebook just click here and here.

We’re also thinking of perhaps creating a few more of these and having an exhibition where you can buy them, do you guys think that’s a good idea?
