Ferrero Rocher Chocolates

OMG, it’s been far too long since I’ve posted anything here. Almost a year to be precise, so it’s time to wish you a very happy Easter again! Wherever you are in the world, I hope that you and yours are enjoying a wonderful long weekend, rich with love, blessings and your favourite chocolates. Personally I’m enjoying plenty of my favourites 🙂

Something special has inspired me to share an update on this site, and that is the scholarship that I’ve recently been awarded by Marie Forleo to attend her 2016 B-School program. I am SO grateful for this exceptional privilege and pleasure, and I’m already (only 3 modules in) blown away by the phenomenal amount that we are learning. It’s difficult to describe the extent and scale of the quality, value, integrity and transformational nature of our B-School content, but here is my entry video, which gives some insight into what I’ve been up to for the past few months – establishing a fresh focus in terms of camera coaching for the visionary but camera-shy woman:

While we currently offer photo and video shoot services, workshops and VIP days in Johannesburg, my aim is to launch an online program within the next few months to help women entrepreneurs, coaches, consultants, practitioners and leading corporate ladies Rock That Camera and share their brilliance via photos and videos. In the meantime, our company Outdoor Video and Photographic continues to provide as much diversity, excitement and hard work as ever. Much of my blogging attention has also been applied to our company website, which is the 2015 SA Best Photographic Blog Runner Up, for which we’re also sincerely grateful. Thank you to all of you who voted for us again, after helping us win in 2014!

There’s never a dull moment in this ever-creative world, with its amazing opportunity to share so much online. I am often mindful of starting out here on this site and of all the special bloggers who encouraged me along the way. This played a key role in developing my writing and photography skills, as well as laying the foundation to create our business websites. Marie’s B-School program is opening my eyes to many powerful ways to up-level our online platform and it’s such an advantage to be able to build on everything I learned here, so thank you all for being fabulous blogging friends 🙂

Without fail, we seem to find ourselves when immersed in the heart of nature. Always. Unerringly. Never more so than when walking, as a group of us did recently in the Kruger National Park – unfettered by fences and completely free to mingle with Africa’s magnificent wildlife, great and small. I took the above photo […]

There are certain life experiences that you never forget. A sound, a smell, a whisper of memory springs them intermittently front and centre in your heart and mind. The 2013 Safari Guide of the Year competition was just such an experience. Dave and I were truly privileged to spend last week with the 8 exceptional […]

Shot in South Africa, the films were created in response to the escalating threat of extinction facing Earth’s remaining rhinos, the first film, Rhineo & Juliet […]
