Pretville is an Afrikaans film based in the 50’s that inspired and touched South African hearts. In order to create the ideal location for the film, a little town was built for the film. A few creatives kept this set as a tourist destination in Hartbeespoort Dam, just outside of Pretoria. Since the film, this set became a very popular destination for several occasions. Daniel West had the privilege to shoot an E Shoot here, let’s see what he did with the location…

The Theme | What was the look and feel of the shoot?

The theme of the shoot was inspired by the Afrikaans film “Pretville” taking place during the 50’s. This was a suggestion that came from the Bride to be, as she loves the color pink, and adored the film.

The Trends | What’s hot at the moment?

At the moment in photography, the Brenizer technique is quite popular. While in fashion, I’m feeling that South Africa is back in the retro/hipster stage, I personally would love to get where European fashion currently is: colorful, bright and fresh.

Simply You | One last word?

I just got back from Namibia, had no communication, so currently I’m just trying to get back in touch with the world. Love, live and enjoy every moment!
