Meet Kan Grizzly!
“The world will see you the way you see you, and treat you the way you treat yourself” – Beyonce
People ask me how I meet my models. In this blog I will tell you the “The Story Behind the Photo”. This time I want to introduce you to the one and only Kan Grizzly.
Kan and I met for the first time on a Jazz Festival event on Market Square in Cape Town. I took a sweet photo of her and her boyfriend. Not aware of the fact that I was meeting a very talented rapper from Khayelitsha. She followed me on Instagram but we never spoke again.
A few weeks later I was looking for some googles for Afrikaburn. When I entered the shop I saw a girl working there who really looked familiar. She was talking about her music career and I waited till she finished her conversation. I introduced myself and told her I am a portret photographer. She directly grabbed her phone and looked me up on Insta to discover that she was already following me. At that point it made all sense. I explained her the situation and asked her if she wanted to work with me to create some dope press images or album covers.
Kan is really amazing and it was such a pleasure to work with her. Please check her latest videoclip. She has been a real inspiration for me to keep on following my dreams.
Cheers to you babe!
