Misc photos of 2016

 
2016

The danger of doing something too often is that it loses its charm – I shoot a lot and sometimes having a camera with me just feels like work, but I tried really hard to make time to shoot more recreationally in 2016.

Joining Instagram helped a lot in that regard – similarly to when I started this blog 6 years ago, having a platform to publish work is a great incentive to push yourself to shoot more.

Here are some personal/previously unpublished images from the last 12 months as well as some of my personal shots from Instagram.

Music: 2016 in review

MUSIC

And just like that it’s 2017, and even more scarily, my 10th last.fm anniversary. I honestly can’t believe I joined it a decade ago.

Though I don’t spend much time on the site these days I still find the stats and graphs fascinating, athough I never judge my favourites of the year by the data alone, it really does come down to overall impression of the music over number of plays.

So herewith is a roundup of my favourite music of 2016.

Stone Jets at Cafe Roux

Wed 28 December 2016

My last gig shoot of 2016 was really lovely – the Stone Jets put on a great show at Cafe Roux in Shortmarket street. It was my first time at the recently opened city counterpart to the Noordhoek venue and I really enjoyed the vibe. I always struggle shooting seated events especially where people are eating bit generally everyone felt pretty relaxed and I didn’t feel overly stressed about getting in the way.

The show itself was great too – the Stone Jets get better each time I see them and have a great stage presence, where any awkwardness becomes charming and funny. All in all a really great night and a perfect gig to cap off 2016.

Here are some shots from the night.

Dangerfields, Caelo and Echo Beach at Manila Bar

Thurs 1
December
2016

First Thursdays are really not my favourite. December’s was a goodie though – Dangerfields and Caelo, two of my favourite newcomers of the year, played a great show at Manila but it was even newer-newcomers Echo Beach (though they’re technically a bit of a super group) who stole the night for me.
