When it comes to pushing boundaries and barriers, it can all be a bit daunting stepping out of a comfort zone. I am always tickled pick when I can present some South African talent and the following pictures pay testament to the creativity that is flourishing in my home country. Luke Hagemann has started his own journey as a photographer, his work can be seen at:

This time, he is not behind the camera, but in front of it, photographed by Jacci Ostoja. The three hour bathroom shoot was new territory for him, but as you can see, all turned out rather well with some amazing shots that toe the line between art and sensuality. It is always a challenge posing for the camera when you are usually directing a shoot…but, the results speak for themselves. If Cindy Crawford could do it in George Michael’s ‘Freedom’ video, then it was about time for an updated version!
