In the same way, beauty can be tastefully revealed through the eye of a good photographer. Ernst Ohlhoff, local JBay photographer with 18 years experience as a wedding photographer and regular front page photo contributor to the Kouga Express, truly believes that every woman is beautiful and should be appreciated in her own unique way. He decided to parner with Kouga Express and make available a special opportunity to entrants of the Miss Matric Dance competition to enter the best photo they can, at a more affordable cost.Share your youthful beauty with the world, crowned in your matric farewell dress, with a photo entry worthy of your coming of age as you transcend from girl to beautiful woman.From today until entries close on October 31, Ernst is offering a professional 20 minute photo studio session to entrants for the price of R150 per entrant. The photo studio sessions will take place every second week (depending on response and demand) at times that suit the entrants (after school, evenings and Saturday mornings) at First Light, in Da Gama Road, Jeffreys Bay (across from Jolly Dolphin).For a total cost of R150 per person, entrants will receive three photos to choose from for their entry into the contest. The photos will be supplied electronically in high quality print resolution and entrants will also receive three physical photo prints of A5 size (not framed). Entrants must be photographed in their matric farewell dress as they attended (or will still attend) their own matric farewell school dance. Please note that the studio session price of R150 does not include any make-up or hair services, and entrants should arrive for the session with their hair and make-up fully prepared.
