Craig, who has been shooting pro since 2001, has not only developed a unique style, but has perfected a super fast workflow in keeping with the high pressure rigours of shooting events and activations for clients such as Red Bull and Oakley. His work however is not only commercial and brand based and he has a long string of editorial clients, the likes of Bicycling, Runner’s World, the Red Bulletin and Private Edition, all of which for which he regularly shoots covers.
Craig’s go-to setup for a shoot would be a Nikon D5 with 70-200mm and 16mm fish eye for wide work. Then he also carries a 50mm for lifestyle and incidental documentary images. Among many special shoots, he lists Mad Mike Whiddett drifting Franschhoek Pass; Project Sandstorm and a trip to Peru for Kia as highlights of the past five years.
When not shooting, you can find Craig spending time with four-year-old son Koby, or out on his mountain bike training for his fifth Absa Cape Epic.
