“It is also gifts of Love, companionship, friendship and loyalty, those are the ultimate gifts. but not just at Christmas, all year round!”
GRAHAM FROM A PHOTOGRAPHER’S VIEW POINT AS WELL AS A FATHER – I’ll answer it 3-fold:
As a photographer, I really love Christmas shoots, as it’s a time like no other in the year, a time to either on a family portraits level to see the joy of families coming together for a photoshoot.
From a creative point of view, it’s a great challenge, to either go the tried and tested route or to figure out what can be done creatively in some way with models who embrace these shoots to showcase the festive side!!!
As a father (and husband), to instill the value of Christmas in its real meaning, the presents are great, but celebrating Jesus’ birth as a Christian family is the most important thing for me.
It’s time for that ultimate CHRISTMAS WHISLIST again… what are the 3 things on top for your Christmas WISHLIST this year?
MODEL VERONA MOODLEY – The following for me…
- Alignment with the universe,
- more peace and fairness in this world,
- more love and kindness in the world!
GRAHAM FROM UI MODEL PHOTO – ALL Seemingly out of reach… Gear:
- A mirrorless camera,
- 24-70mm F2.8 lens,
- HSS Strobe/Speedlight
- (Bonus wish) A good laptop (as editing from a desktop currently)
ONE FOOD DISH to prepare and make for the FESTIVE SEASON #CHRISTMAS to enjoy with friends and family TO GIVE IT THAT TRUE SOUTH AFRICAN CHRISTMAS FEELING, what would that be for you?
MODEL VERONA MOODLEY – For me nothing beats a…
“SOUTH AFRICAN classic desert… Malva Pudding!“
GRAHAM FROM UI MODEL PHOTO – That’s gotta be a roast, the process & enjoyment when it’s busy,
“Getting that smell of the meat & potatoes roasting…., eating & sharing it with loved ones is the best part of the process.”

GRAHAM FROM UI MODEL PHOTO – I’m not one for the warm & fuzzy feelgood Christmas Movies, I can’t give a list as I love too many, I don’t normally repeat watching a movie, except here & there with family to see their reaction.
