SHIMON PERES- A MAN OF PEACE

The former President of the State of Israel and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, has just completed a highly succesful visit to South Africa. He addressed an enthusiastic and attentive large audience and held them spellbound during an interview on stage with the seasoned interviewer Paula Slier.
It was one of the highlights of my photojournalistic career to be commissioned to photograph him for the IUA/UCF who hosted the event at the Sandton Covention Centre.
Some of the images taken by me are viewable by clicking on the following link or copying and pasting it into your web browser

NOVEMBER FLYING TRAINING DAY AT THE SOUTH AFRICAN AIRFORCE MUSEUM IN PRETORIA

The November event presented a few surprises for the photographers  and others who attended.
Firstly,in addition to the SAAF Museum aircraft, the Mustang and Cobra car clubs had some magnificent vehicles on show.
Then, to round off the morning young Bianca modelled for a few of us photographers. The lighting conditions were really not in our favour with very harsh overhead sunlight prevailing for the outside part of the shoot.
I share some of the images shot on the day :)
First the cars and planes:






















And then we had the opportunity to photograph Bianca , with cars and planes and specifically a Mustang  P 51 Aircraft, one of my favourite planes
