book cover sale


Another book cover sale! Shot in an abandoned house in the village where I used to live… the house is now sold and made into apartments, I hope they left these beautiful doors intact…

A shoot I did this week with my younger sister Patricia. She wanted some bikini photo’s. We did some portrait and two photo’s of us together as well. Merci Tries!!



We have a small pool in the garden which in winter is covered with a pool cover. The rain leaves a big puddle in the middle of it and the kids leave their toys laying about -as they do throughout the entire house- including a baby doll. It somehow got stuck in the middle of the puddle on the pool cover and has been there for about six months, seeing as I was too lazy did not have time to clear it away. Today was a sunny day and as I walked into the garden I saw the doll and noticed it had gone all dirty and green. What an opportunity! Got out the camera and started shooting away. Got the doll out of the pool eventually and to my surprise a ladybug came out of it’s mouth! I think it would make a great book cover. What do you think?




It’s finally winter here in the south of France. Although there is no snow (yet) here in our village, a little further up the mountain there is heaps! So of we went with the kids and the sleighs for a good walk and play -and photo’s naturally- and came home with rosy cheeks to a big mug of hot chocolate with a dash of rum. Sundays don’t come any better.

Book covers


So, yesterday, finally after trying 2 years ago and not making it, I have now been accepted as an Trevillion images contributor! Wow! That means that my photographs could make it as a book cover or some other great advertising product. I am already learning a lot having taken all sorts of photo’s in the last two weeks to build a portfolio for them to view. I’m proud to say they have accepted 24 pictures and I will soon appear on their website! Thank you Trevillion!
