Property Photography

I was recently commissioned to take architectural photos of some property for Lightbodys. Lightbodys is a property company that buys and renovates derelict properties in Pietermaritzburg.

Portfolio Portrait Shoot with KD

Eagle Nest is an amazing place. It’s like a luxury hotel but with a few major differences. They also offer full-time accommodation in bachelor suites …
