I had the privilege to photograph one of the most iconic leaders on two different occasions. These are some of my favourite Madiba images. The first set was taken at Grey College, Bloemfontein – South Africa, this was still back in the film days!! Nikon F5, 80-200mm f2.8 lens and Fuji Colour Film. The first image was scanned in and converted to black & white in Photoshop.

Almost ten years later and what a great privilege it was to assist South African photographer, Alet van Huyssteen, with a shoot at the Dorchester Hotel. Two of the greatest world leaders had lunch together in the build up towards the 46664 concert in London and Alet did the job for former President Bill Clinton. Alet does work for the Nelson Mandela Foundation on a regular basis and is also a very good friend of ours. Thanks Alet!!

On the second photo you can see the legendary photographer Terry O’Neill next to Madiba’s PA, Zelda le Grange.
