100th of a Century Peartree Celebration | Part 1/2
It is the Peartree Blog’s 1st Birthday today (on Africa Day of course!). Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us … traalalaa
My lovely wife always encourage and reminds me to celebrate the milestones in life … a time to reflect, rethink (or just to think!), dream and to thank. If you have the time, join us for a short snippet highlight journey through the Blog the past year …
May 2009 : Welcome to the Blogosphere Peartree! To celebrate the birth, we put together a Short Video explaining who we are and about our Natural Approach. And of course this shoot for a art piece that was blown up to 3 x 2 meters!
June 2009 : I visited the North of India for a wedding in the Himalayas. In retrospect, I am sure I picked up Swine Flu on the way there and worked my way through it during the 3 day wedding. India was needless to say really tough and amazing at the same time. This wedding featured on numerous blogs around the world and I believe, have established Peartree Photography as Destination Wedding Photographers.
July 2009 : I have just arrived back from India. I had 3 days to spend with my lovely family before I was airborne again for a Friday wedding in Natal. The very next morning I was back again in the Grabouw mountains for a wedding in the pouring rain. The fun we had that day will stand out for a long time!
August 2009 : We took you on a 7-part photographic journey through Africa. I did an exhibition in Esbjerk, Denmark on the theme “Instead of Ashes, The Oil of Gladness” and shared this 2004 journey in words and pictures.
September 2009 : We extended our range of equipment and redeveloped our Uniquely Fresh style in Natural Environmental Portraiture. We can really see the difference!
October 2009 : Apart from doing loads of weddings, we covered commercial and family shoots. Joel Potgieter is one of my son’s friends. I had the privilege to spend some time and captured this boy as he explored life in all his fullness. What a joy!
The last 6 months will be posted tomorrow as Part 2 / 2 of our 100th of a Century Peartree Celebration
