We were lucky enough to be granted access to do a behind the scenes feature with a celebrated South African celebrity photographer, Austin Malema. He has a busy schedule and we caught up with him in Joburg on a random weekday whereby he was working on an exciting shoot with two models.
Photography isn’t a one man job and in order to be successful, you often need to work with a team of about four people. On the day, Austin’s #AwesomeFoursome included Enhle and Lindi (models) assisted by an up and coming photographer called Sivuyile Matsiliza. Austin is one of the biggest lifestyle photographer’s in South Africa with over 14 000 followers on twitter and a whopping 32 000 fans on Instagram. More often than not, people only get to see his work as the final product when it’s presented on social media or magazines, so we wanted to see the blood, sweat and tears that goes into Austin’s photography.
We chatted with the team to better understand the flavours they each bring to the table & better understand how they #CelebrateDifferent while working collaboratively to bring their project to life!
Malema and his team let us in on some pretty awesome photography insights and we later celebrated the full days work by indulging on delicious Awesome Foursome Debonairs Pizza with each member munching on a flavour which best represents their personality… fun was had!
THIS IS HOW THE FINAL IMAGE OF ENHLE CAME OUT…
