Photo Critic Shot of the Month: September 2015

The Photo Critic Shot of the Month competition for September 2015 goes to Caleb Dredge with “The Heat of the Competition” a slow shutter, impressionist image depicting the action and energy of swimmers fighting it out in the pool. His image reminded us of Ernst Haas’ work and especially liked the three primary colours of red, blue and yellow that keeps the eye jumping between the different markers. Well done Caleb, you walk away with a R600 discount on any DPC photography course.  


Registering for a photography course/workshop at DPC entitles you to free membership to our student network, Photo Critic. Members may upload up to two images per week for constructive critiques and join in other photography activities.

About the Author:

Danie Bester
I am the founder of DPC and Photo Critic. I am married to Jenna, my high-school sweetheart for over two decades now and have two adult children, Mia-Daniel and Minnette. We live in Centurion, Pretoria. I am proud, yet humbled by how far we have come and what we have achieved in such a short time. Today DPC ranks under the foremost photography schools in South Africa and we've build a healthy community of photographers. The road has not always been easy but through a leap of faith and the grace of God, we have grown a small photography business to a successful training institute. Working as a commercial photographer and teaching a wide range of photography subjects, including; Portraiture, Studio lighting, Fine-art, Architecture and Food Photography has kept me fairly versatile. On a personal level, I pursue fine-art, travel, and landscape photography. I have recently been honoured, with my work being included in the Collectors Guide to Art and Artists in South Africa.
