Photo shoots around the country - book yours today

Hi guys and dolls

I'll be hitting the road on Monday, on a trip that will be taking in Bloemfontein, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Nelspruit, Kruger area, George, Knysna and Port Elizabeth.  All this over the next 2 weeks.  If you live in this area and would like to book a shoot with me, best you do so now.

Find me on Facebook [there's only one Nick van der Leek], have a look at my albums.  A full portfolio shoot is R1000, but it can cost as little as R250 if it's just a few photos.

It really is worth the while, your image on social media is determined in large part by your profile picture/avatar, and it's good to have a decent stock of quality material.  If your picture is blurry and amateurish it can send the wrong message about who you really are. 
Models, actresses, business folk - I also try toleverage your exposure by using my own social media networks to market you, including my connections to various publications, and if you have a story to tell, I will be all over it like an oil slick.

If you want a little background about me: I'm a freelance photojournalist so I do this, writing and photography, for a living.  I try to combine photoshoots with my trips to cover my own costs getting to various far-flung locations[I don't have a corporate petrol card].  I am going on this trip to do a few articles for GETAWAY magazine and another publication.  If you want to see a sample of my work, I have a 7 page feature on Botswana featured in the June issue right now, or else check out my portfolio here.

Moms and boyfriends, if you're concerned about the safety of your daughters/girlfriends, you're absolutely welcome to tag along.  Careful I don't point my camera at you though. 

This road trip extends from around 21 June to the first week of July.  If you're keen or know someone who is, please get in touch with me via facebook, or email me at:
