I joined SHAWCO at UCT an organization involved in various projects to help various underprivileged communities. I joined the project called Masizame in Hout Bay. I chose this project as I live in Hout Bay which means a lot to me and am so happy to be helping even if it is a small contribution! We tutor grade 6's maths - times tables at the moment. I'm tutoring a beautiful girl called Mamelo and a hilarious little boy called Edwin - all very cute. I can't get involved as much as I'd like to due to my busy days with varsity work and external work too :/ I tutor once a week and really encourage everyone and anyone to join - fun and very rewarding! Have a beautiful week A x

Torné Velk Photography 2013

2013 means a new year which means new ideas, goals and dreams. What do you aim to achieve this year?

-I aim to make mistakes and to learn from them as I feel that’s the best way to learn. I’m traveling to Bali in June and would love to shoot a few girls there. I want to shoot more ‘intense’ themed stuff and meet new people to work with.

What are the biggest lessons you have learnt over the past few years as a fashion photographer?

- To never say too much as the industry in Cape Town is so small, and to always be aware of whats new regarding fashion. Also the model is the most important aspect of a photo, not the clothes or make up.  

What has been the greatest experience for you and is there a job in particular that has highlighted this?

- The greatest experience has been my entire journey over the last 2 years of development and learning. I’ve met some amazing people and met some of my good friends through my passion. Each shoot is a great experience for me.  

What is your favourite subject matter, style and theme?

- My favourite thing to achieve from my photos is an edgy feel and style. I would like to develop more on a darker more attitude style.  

You are 18 now. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

- Wow, I would hope to have travelled and shot in places like Milan , London and new York. I would also love to have shot certain international models and icons.  

What inspires your work the most at this current stage in your life?

- Many blogs and magazines as well as of course many photographers such as Lara Jade and Chris heads!

WOW - What talent

So... I realize I have not posted in who knows how long...:/ (and I realize I have said that about a million times) VERY uncool. And I know this is the weirdest time to start posting again (4am on a friday night) but.. due to the fact that I have stopped drinking as of Sunday 3rd of Feb I am currently buzzing from the after effects of Redbull. haha. Went out with my girlfriend and fellow blogger in fact to Club 31 - was pretty insane! Anyways, I am quite enjoying the sober life (not that I was an alcoholic or anything) and YES you can go to places like Tiger (gross) or Caprice or any other place for that matter mingling with crazy drunk people, stay sober and have fun. You do not fade 'early' as many people have warned me, or have less fun or party less hard. I infact have more energy, do not end up doing embarassing stuff and do not have to lie around the next day nursing a hangover. haha. Anyways not trying to preach here ;)

So... I'm back and going to be better on the current updates with the blog! Soon to come.. Interview with Miss Torné Velk - fashion photographer! And more...
