I spent the last 5 months in Cape Town, South Africa working. It has been an amazing experience. I worked with Suit Supply, Savana Cider, My TFG World, Wavebreak, FCB Africa and Runway Sales. I also had the amazing opportunity to shoot with Amar Metha, Willam Lee, Bettel, Larochelle Pieterse, Julian Kreohl, Georg Kruggel, Marius Wilkens-Zimmermann, Pheonix Jergens and Mark Lyne. If you have never been to South Africa, I suggest you make a trip to the Mother City. It’s such a beautiful place with even more beautiful people.
