The 12 photos that won me motoring photographer of the year 2014

Here are the twelve pictures I (Desmond) entered to the SAGMJ (South African Guild of Motoring Journalists) competition. We won! I say we because this was a team effort between me and Toni! I also want to thank all my friends who supported me – you know who you are. Of course a massive thanks goes out to all the magazines and clients we work with!

The rules of the competition were strict but simple. Nine of the twelve photos must have been published or used by an ad agency in 2013. Then I could add another three photos with no rules.

I could not attend the prize giving last night in Johannesburg as I’m currently in Germany. Thank you SAGMJ for this wonderful prize! I feel honoured.

Opel Astra Campaign

We were asked to shoot the new Opel Astra for GM (General Motors) South Africa. The brief: day and night lifestyle shots for magazine ads, billboards and websites. We might be a bit biased, but we think shooting cars in and around Cape Town is the best.
