Over the course of one very long & productive day, I teamed up with photographer Nick Aldridge as he opened up his photo studio in the Observatory neighborhood in Cape Town. Together, we invited photo industry professionals & crew to have their portraits taken & share their story with us. 

Below is an overview of many who were able to join us, and links to their full interviews.  Cape town #CrewLove at its finest!
