Durban Motor Show
The Durban Motor Show has returned. The show has not been held for a few years and returned as a great success.
The advantage of having media access on all three days of the show allowed for a great opportunity to photograph the cars, both old and new. The show saw the official launch of the latest model Ford Mustang together with new releases from several other manufacturers.
A highlight of the show was the Drifting competition held in the car park across the road from the Expo site. This was the first time the a competition of this nature had been held within the CBD of a South African City. Well done Durban Motor Show, it was a grand event.
Peg Skateboards and Malaz vehicle modifications also put together a "Skate my Ride Skateboard competition which held everyone in awe. Skateboards exhibited their skills while skating up a ramp and over a VW Beetle. Very brave chaps these were, especially those that did not always make it but got up and continued.

Today was an action packed one with an outdoor shoot in the park and then another in the new studio. Both shoots involved young children between 18 and 24 months.
Although these are always challenging shoots, all went well. The weather, somewhat inclement lately, held off and provided wonderful light for the outdoor shoot, The child was a very happy little boy who thoroughly enjoyed himself.
After the outdoor shoot we went back to the studio and set up for a very, very active little girl. Man oh man did she run a mock. Toys (props) finally caught her attention and slowed her down a little allowing us to go about getting some really great pics. Then it was off to downloading and workflows.
All in all, it was a fantastic day. Busy and most rewarding, leaving two families happy with their shoots and eager to get their hands on the results thereof.
Ok, so here we go. PdG PIX registered it's own domain name. can you guess what it might be? I thought so, and you're right it is pdgpix.com.
The site is in it's infancy and as a result of the many genres of photography that PdG PIX is capable in the site will take a little time to mature. Feel free to browse the site and let us know what you think. Is there too little info, not enough photos examples etc. etc.
