Looking to open a photographic business that was focused on woman and all woman being beautiful, I had been looking at all sorts of different styles, when I stumbled upon boudoir photography. A mutual friend of ours had done a boudoir shoot for her husband and showed us her book. The minute we saw her images we knew this was the type of photography that Iwould like to focus on as we both knew that women would love similar images of themselves.
A boudoir studio should be intimate and comfortable and in a warm and secure environment. After scouting various boutique hotels and guest houses we kept on coming back to our home, what place could be more secure, safe and comfortable than our home (well as safe and secure as anywhere in South Africa)? And so, like many successful businesses , Boudoir Fusion Photography was born in our converted garage, and like any loved and well-nourished child, we have kept on growing and every day seem to be evolving. We love what we do and try to make every session an experience.

I started taking photographs at a very early age whilst in the army, amongst other things I worked as a photographer. I then got involved in the Scuba Diving Industry and became an instructor trainer and then worked for a scuba diver training agency at a corporate level for 17 years, during this time I really took to underwater photography and had images published in many magazines, diver training manuals, coffee table books, journals and newspapers. Upon leaving my corporate position I joined Jordan full-time in our Boudoir Photography Business. I love how Boudoir and sensual photography empowers women and their reactions when they see their gorgeous images. Being a male boudoir photographer often has its drawbacks for obvious reasons and I often feel like corporate women in the workplace that are trying to be taken seriously. Most of my clients have commented on how comfortable they have felt after a shoot with me, their biggest problem has been selecting their images as they seem to love most of them. Here are a few of the magazines, newspapers and other publications in which I have had my images published. • London Financial Times (UK) • Dive Style (RSA) • UK Sport Diver (UK) • Skin Diver (UK) • Out There Adventure Guide (RSA) • Getaway Magazine (RSA) • Member News (UK, Africa, Russia, Middle East and Eastern Europe) • UnderSea Journal (International) • Out There Magazine (RSA) • Men’s Health (RSA) • Playboy Magazine (RSA) • Diving Trade International (International) • Dive Southern Africa (RSA) • The Port Elizabeth Herald (RSA) • Seychelles Nation (Seychelles) • Seychelles in your pocket (Seychelles) • Numerous Travelling Tour Operator Brochures (International) • Tauchen Magazine (German) • Indlovu magazine (RSA) • Fourseasons Magazine • Philosophie (International Boudoir Photography magazine)
