RE.INVENT is a blend of two distinct and very very different views on wedding photography in Africa. It is a workshop hosted by two photographers who have taken wedding photography, given it a good shake and developed unique styles of photography that have seen them shooting weddings throughout southern Africa. It is a glimpse into how they work, how they see, what they look for, how they developed their very unique styles. You will leave the workshop with the skills to be able to walk into any venue, identify amazing locations, be able to manage whatever light is being thrown at you and create a masterpiece.

Located at the world famous Cradle of Humankind, Forum Homini is nestled in a private game reserve and is an architectural masterpiece set amidst references to the past, from ancient totems, sculptures representing various stages of evolution to subtle handprints cast in cement. It is a extraordinary venue to experience a reinvention and unearthing of your own photographic vision.

The workshop is SOLD OUT – if you would like to be informed when the next one is on send a blank email to or if you’re on facebook you can join The Dror Eyal Experiment.

No BS posing techniques that will make your couple look like rockstars
The skills to break out of the “wedding photography” mould and develop your own distinctive style

Live photoshop session using your own photos
Individualized photo critique
That all important lunch where you get to network and chat to other photographers

Dror Eyal is a South African wedding photographer living and working in Johannesburg. Though undeniably photo-documentary in nature, Dror’s wedding work is defined through an editorial urge to fix narratives to his subjects. His images create a loose, layered and intensely rich visual scene. See more of his work on his blog


Andrea Carlyle has made a big impact on the South African wedding scene with her amazing eye for detail and composition. Her work resists the usual cliche’s surrounding wedding photography without artificially forcing the boundaries or jumping on the next bandwagon. See more of her work on her blog.
