Hello and Welcome To My Blog
I'm a professional photographer based in Durban. I've been shooting weddings since 2010, generally in KZN but sometimes in other parts of the country too. On weekdays I do commercial photo shoots and build websites for companies in and around Durban as well as family shoots.
I also have a creative agency with my fiancé Ruth. We do advertising and design. You can visit us at colinandruth.com.
Juan sent me an email saying he was planning on proposing to his girlfriend Anastasia on the Umhlanga beach, he wanted me to capture the moment. Obviously I had to be discreet about it and make sure that she didn’t see me. Not only did I not know what they looked like besides a fuzzy…VIEW IMAGES >>
Dylan and Lara were married in June at Providence in the KZN Midlands, it’s one of my favourite venues because it’s just so beautiful. It’s impossible to take a bad photo there, and to make it even better, Dylan and Lara were such fun. Lara couldn’t stop smiling and laughing all day, it made for…VIEW IMAGES >>
This was one of the quickest shoots I’ve ever done. I arrived at the FWJK offices in Umhlanga just before 9am, set up my lighting in the boardroom and in came the first staff member for their company photo. A total of four staff members rushed in on their way to and from meetings, I…VIEW IMAGES >>
I was commissioned to do the company photos for Regal Meats. My job was to do portraits of the staff, some general photos in the factory and a group photo outside with the trucks. It all went well. I captured all the smiling staff for their company photos and did a few group shots, then…VIEW IMAGES >>

Antonino is Italian and was blessed to have family and friends fly out for the wedding, Tracy is South African and her parents have a home at Zimbali. We had a magnificent sunset which greeted us just…VIEW IMAGES >>
It was so fun shooting the wedding of my good friends Darrell and Jess, it’s quite different to most of the weddings I shoot which are for couples I only meet either on the wedding day or maybe once before the wedding. It was a close-knit affair with our other friends Carryn from Desire 2…VIEW IMAGES >>
I’ve been wanting to blog this wedding for a while now but I’ve just been way too busy with so much editing. James and Sarah had a beautiful wedding in April, the ceremony was at the Maris Stella school chapel close to where Sarah grew up and the reception and photo shoot was at Talloula…VIEW IMAGES >>
On the 27th of March last year I got an enquiry from Bronwyn, she explained that she is originally from South Africa but now lives in the USA. She was travelling to KZN to visit family with her new fiancé Ty and wanted to do an engagement shoot. So we made the arrangements and did…VIEW IMAGES >>
Doing packshots is never as easy as it seems. All these products were very reflective and I had to be very careful, I used a closed lightbox with just the end of my camera lens sticking through an opening. Even still I got reflections which I had to remove afterwards in Photoshop. The other trick…VIEW IMAGES >>
