WHAT EXACTLY IS SLOW AFTERNOON?
I’ve heard it so many times from so many photographers, shoot for yourself.
Being a wedding photographer, I rarely got the time to actually do this. I didn’t do it for almost three years before realizing that I’m busy burning out, I need to do something that will reignite my love for photography.
I came up with the idea of hosting a creative afternoon, just for people wanting to do something different, something they won’t get to do on any normal given day.
Slow Afternoon is not a workshop, it is a collaboration with a handful of extremely creative people coming together to give people the opportunity to experiment, learn and gain new inspiration. Nobody will be there to tell you how they do it, nobody will be presenting any type of classes and nobody will guide you in any way. This is your afternoon to be as creative as you want to be.
IS THIS ONLY OPEN TO PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS?
Not at all, my mother-in-law is also joining me :) This is the most incredible opportunity for any newbie to come and experiment with a real-life styled setup, this is the safest place to come and ‘make mistakes’ before attempting a real-life shoot. Anybody is welcome to join in.
HOW ABOUT THE LOGISTICS?
Taking place 19 July 2018 // The Modern Heirloom, Stellenbosch from 13:00 – 17:00. Refreshments and light snacks will be included. The price range from R 2 500.00 – R 3 750.00. Early Bird booking (R500 discount) will be available for the first 10 bookings and/or until the end of April, whichever comes first.

HOW WILL IT WORK?
This shoot is open to photographers and the public. Because we are expecting a diverse group of people to join in, we are creating three different setups each one relating to a different style of photography.
(Dark + Romantic // Neutral + Elegant // Vibrant + Lively)
Eight different stationery suites by talented designers Anthos Design Studio, Little North Company, Hello it's Matilda and more (to be confirmed) will be paired with a variety of beautiful styling surfaces.
We also have three couples to play model, and you guessed it, each couple dressed to fit a different style. This way we can create a scene for any type of photographer to join in. Whether you like storytelling or fine-art, there will be something to fit every style of photography.
WHAT AM I ACTUALLY GOING TO DO?
The idea is for you to have the freedom to style, setup up and take your own photos. This is not a workshop but rather an opportunity for you to take photos the way you want to and experiment with new ideas and styles. From the moment you step inside the venue, you will find the tables, stationery and models all at your disposal and ready to photograph. You will have the luxury of time on your side, you can take time thinking about your photos instead of just running through your standard shot list.
CAN I BOOK MY PLACE ON THE DAY OR AT THE DOOR?
Unfortunately not, this is a pre-book only event. We need a final head count to ensure we have enough food, drinks and styling items for everyone. Registration will close 10 July 2018.
