10 days in Namibia. 2012 DesertLight Workshop – Paradigm Shift with Philippe Pache

The last 10 days…where to start! I was lucky enough to take part in the amazing Nambian photographic trip hosted by portrait photographer Philippe Pache from Switzerland ( and of course the namibian triplets: Willem Oets, Lydia and Nicole! ). The workshop was called ‘Paradigm Shift’ because it promised to alter ones creative paradigm.  Unfortunately I wasn’t exactly there as a photographer  ( for those close to me you will know what I mean!) but of course I managed to sneak a few pics for my collection. I have posted a little mix of portraits, taken by myself but also by fellow photographers on the trip, alongside the most important behind the scenes shots! Huge thanks to my models – Gina, Justine, Debora and Maria..and of course Namibia. This really was an eye opening, invaluable experience from start to finish and meeting my co-models and photographers was the ultimate highlight. Too many fun memories – a few shown below..

The famous Maria Tree.

Fortunately I became the resident hand and foot model and I just love this picture by Basil…

I just love this photo – taken by the ridiculously talented Christy Lee from Pickle Photography. Just one of her many amazing portrait shots from the workshop….

One by Philippe Pache in the Dina House – in the bath. The models spent alot of time in this bath!!
