James and Samantha live in China, so they wanted a shoot that would be authentically Durban. The original plan was to go up to the top of the arch on the Moses Mabhida stadium and do some photos with the view of Durban in the background, but when we arrived we were told that the Skycart hadn’t been operational for several months. This, along with the protests in Durban central meant we had to stay out of the city centre, so we headed down to the closest beach. When we arrived at the beach we found that there was still a lot of debri from the recent floods. It seemed like all was lost but we decided to make the most of it and shoot anyway, the photos don’t necessarily show us in the heart of Durban but there were some great moments nonetheless.
