If you’ve never heard of Gympie Street in Woodstock, Google it and I’m sure a certain picture will begin to emerge. It has a very interesting history behind it. Mainly of guns, gangs, murders – you know, just normal everyday blood and guts sort of stuff. I reckon some of the fellows who hang out there would probably scare the living wits out of any other gang in the world. So Ash and Gren (whose wedding I’m shooting next month) and myself decided we may as well take a quiet Sunday afternoon stroll (unarmed) into one of Cape Town’s most notorious places for scaring yourself silly and probably leaving zipped up in a body bag in the back of an ambulance. To be quite honest, some of it was a bit disturbing because we saw one or two things that made you realise that it was relatively to extremely important to keep looking over your shoulder. But hey, sometimes you do have to live on the edge and test yourself. I’m really glad we went for it because I think we got one heck of a result as far as engagement shoots go. I hope you agree.
