Bradford Bird Photography

I'm a London based photographer.. Hopefully you'll like some of the work I post up here. You can also find me through my website

Thought I’d share a few of my personal shots from various places, here and there - better than them just sitting on the hard drive right?

Location Taal Monument in Cape Town, South Africa.       

I wanted to celebrate the growing interest in the diversity of the young South African fashion and design scene. Cape Town was recently awarded the World Design Capital award for 2014 and I wanted to exclusively use local designers and local, multicultural models for this shoot.
I also chose to shoot the editorial at the Taal Monument. It’s an architecturally beautiful structure that was erected in the 70’s just outside Cape Town and was originally a fairly isolated location during the apartheid years. I feel the story ties together the positive artistic future South Africa is busy developing while referencing a time in the recent past where that seemed an impossibility.

A recent swimsuit editorial I shot while in Cape Town.

Thanks to Nicole Van Heerden for the styling, Mariska Swart for the hair and MU and Kerstin for assisting.
