Creative Napier

The Art Event ‘Creative Napier’ 27-30 December 2021 is something no art lover should miss. 15 Local Artists present their work in 10 different locations.

Our work (photography and jewellery) can be seen at Studio98 along the main road in Napier.

Thank you!!!

In the past few years I’ve worked with many known and lesser known photo models. Some have quite an attitude and others are more modest but then; aren’t we all different?

Some of them I could persuade for an additional short session with jewellery of my wife Yvonne (Instagram: @yvonnedewitjewelry).

Out of gratitude to my wife and those models (from Kenya, Malawi, Europe and South Africa) here a series in black and white.

Photo Model of the day

Being above, let’s say 60 years, does not mean that you are not suitable for photo modelling. Here is Heidi; an elderly woman in her retirement years and she is great.

All Black & White in fairly high contrast. Love B&W!!!
