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.
We originally planned to do the Mokaedi family shoot on the beach by the lighthouse, but it was just too windy and crowded. I suggested we head over to the lagoon by the Breakers Hotel instead, we did photos along the pathways, over the bridges and in between the bushes. Lindie is pregnant with their…VIEW IMAGES >>
I shot Andrea and Westley’s wedding at Zimbali a few years ago, so it was wonderful to hear from Andrea again. She told me that they had a baby now and that she’d like to have a family shoot on the beach in Umdloti, the only problem was that we couldn’t actually button down the…VIEW IMAGES >>
It was a very windy day when I met the Munro family for their photo shoot in Umhlanga, all the girls hair was blowing all over the place so we took a bit of shelter by some rocks.

The reception was in the main hall which was kitted out in loads of…VIEW IMAGES >>
Most of the time when families come for their photo shoot they like to match their outfits, white shirts and blue jeans seems to be most people’s first choice. I guess someone did it about 30 years ago and everyone since has just believed it to be the norm. I don’t blame anyone for it…VIEW IMAGES >>
The Greef family piled into one of their company busses and made the trip up the hill to Summerveld for a photo shoot. There were three family units in total, with all of them being just as fun-loving as the other. We got some great portraits and then I got the kids to run around,…VIEW IMAGES >>
I was booked at the last minute to shoot baby Cayla’s dedication at Collisheen’s Orchid House, the family had initially booked Carmen Roberts but she had an unfortunate sporting accident and had to pass the job over. We refer work to each other often so it was nothing out of the ordinary. I was pleased to…VIEW IMAGES >>
Njabulo and Nombulelo came down from Johannesburg to Alpine Heath resort in the KZN Drakensberg to get married. They had a wonderful celebration full of joy and laughter. Njabulo got ready at the venue, while Nombulelo got ready at her parents house as per tradition, and arrived already in her wedding dress and ready to…VIEW IMAGES >>
Motion Tronic are an industrial automation business, I have no idea what that even means but they seem to sell and service all sorts of electronic machines and gadgetry that you’ll most likely find in factories. All I know is that they have a lot of complicated looking machinery there and the staff seem to be real…VIEW IMAGES >>
