Gautrain Project

In 2006 I was commissioned as the official Gautrain Project photographer. The Gautrain Project is Africa’s first raid rail link and at the time,  was the largest engineering project to take place on the African continent. My responsibilities included documenting the construction of the project, compiling a stock library for press, web and general marketing purposes.  I was lucky enough to win a number of awards for images taken on the project.
