“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible” – Dalai Lama
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 Ntethelelo.
Ntethelelo and I met each other in Kloofstreet in Cape Town. He entered a bar and I noticed him because of his cool style. We started talking and I asked him if I could take some photos of him any time soon. He said yes! Only problem he was flying back to Durban the next day..
Sooo what to do? Ntethelelo and I stayed in touch and soon I discovered that is nickname was Guru. I asked him why do people call you Guru? He explained that people call him a Style Guru because he always looks so fly. And according to his instagram this man knows what he is talking about.
Ntethelelo invited me to Durban. He showed me around and made sure that I was able to see a lot of different sides of the city. He even took me to some very dope festivals and parties. Soon I discovered that Ntethelelo first of all extremely kind but also very talented. His ideas about style are very cool and at one point he dared me to do a photoshoot with him while he would pick my outfit. Oh yes, I was extremely nervous when we went shopping together. After he picked my outfit, we took a Uber to the Botanical Gardens in Durban.
Those gardens are beautiful with a lot of green and sick plants. Ntethelelo allowed me to take photos of him in a different style that he was used to. Our collaboration was a lot of fun and thanks to Ntethelelo I still have good memories when I think of Durban.
Keep on dreaming my friend because I know you will always succeed and reach your goals!
