By Colin Browne | 25 May 2017

The Elangeni Hotel has become a regular venue for me to shoot corporate events, this time it was for BP. The day started with delegates arriving from all over KZN to be greeted with hot coffee, then they listened to formalities, asked questions and some of them received some prizes. A lot of them seemed…

Bless a Granny – John Dunn House

By Colin Browne | 05 December 2016

Last week I joined the teams from Dezzo Roofing and Chilli Source Design for a Christmas give-away at John Dunn House old age home. It started off with handing out some food and treats, followed by a modelling show by Mrs India SA and some dancing, then the goodie bags containing perfumes, lipsticks, chocolate, dresses and other…

Nedo Signing Ceremony – Zimbali and Durban

By Colin Browne | 18 November 2016

Every now and then I do a bit of photojournalism work. I was commissioned by Hitachi to shoot a ceremony in which a Memorandum of Agreement would be signed between Japanese representatives and the mayor of Ethekwini. I’m not an engineer so I’m not entirely sure of the details but it has something to do…

Aberdare Cables Event – Elangeni Hotel

By Colin Browne | 12 September 2016

A corporate birthday party for Aberdare Cables who have international business concerns, complete with a cake cutting. There were speeches by a lot of the leaders of the company, and an MC who was hilarious. They hired the excellent group The Muses to perform who were excellent, they incorporated the theme tune to Game of Thrones into…

By Colin Browne | 19 August 2016

I shot an event for Lord Taverners at the Elangeni Hotel, there were some local sportsmen there including Shaun Pollock and Francois Steyn, as well as other names such as Simon Doull and David O’Sullivan. The aim was to raffle off sporting memorabilia for charity, particularly sporting development for children which is a great cause.…

POPCRU Corporate Event – Durban ICC

By Colin Browne | 19 June 2015

POPCRU is the SA police union. I had mixed emotions shooting this event. On one hand it was an honour to be chosen to shoot an event of this magnitude, the sheer scale and enormity of it was mind blowing. On the other hand, it felt like I had been transformed back in to the…

Pam Golding Conference – Wild Coast Sun

By Colin Browne | 25 May 2015

Earlier this month I spent 3 days down at the Wild Coast Sun shooting the annual Pam Golding conference. I arrived on my birthday with my camera in hand and didn’t really stop shooting until I left, it was full of fun and the delegates all seemed to have an incredible few days. There was…

Pam Golding Gold Club Awards – Cargo Hold Ushaka

By Colin Browne | 15 April 2015

Whichever kind of function that I shoot, whether it’s a wedding, corporate function or anything else I always find that it’s the guests who are in their forties and fifties who seem to have the most fun. Maybe it’s because they don’t mind letting loose a bit more than their younger counterparts, maybe it’s because…

Alexander Forbes Conference – Durban ICC

By Colin Browne | 17 March 2015

I was fortunate enough to shoot an event for Alexander Forbes, it was a lot of information about retirement which has been on my mind recently. Sometimes speakers at corporate events talk about very complicated and highly specialised information, which requires you to be qualified and working in the field to know what they’re talking about.…

Pam Golding Gold Club Awards – Greensleeves at Camelot

By Colin Browne | 06 May 2014

What a fun night, this was the bi-annual awards for Pam Golding’s Gold Club and long service awards. The MC for the event was Nik Rabinowitz who had everyone in stitches, he teased everyone including all the executives, himself and even had a light hearted dig at me. Such good fun, it was a pleasure…

By Colin Browne | 13 November 2013

This event was quite a big deal, it was televised and there were a lot of VIP’s in attendance including the finance minister Pravin Gordhan, FNB CEO Michael Jordaan and others. The president was invited but declined to attend. Loyiso and two of his friends provided the entertainment. At the end of the evening I…
