TONY GUM X THE LAKE MAGAZINE

It's a new year and yet again we have been blessed to experience another day - praises to the Most High! (better late than never right?)

Late last year I got the opportunity to be cover of the 007 issue of a local publication called The Lake Magazine. Working with quite a crazy but lovely team (very Cape Town) I actually enjoyed every moment of the evening shoot - literally that "I'm working on Friday evening" kind of shoot. Supported with some delicious tasting snacks, appetizing draaanks and the photographer's groovy playlist, we had fun! But other than the fitting ambiance, the team really took into consideration what amused my aesthetic taste buds (and I honestly appreciate that).

These days, it's rare to find that 'extra effort' put in by publications - if they win the opportunity to shoot your face, most times don't give two hoots about what you, the model, like. Luckily, I'm not just a model - I'm an artist who knows what the hell she likes. Qha.

Shout out to the stylist for tolerating that.
Philia, my sister from another mister, was also there by side. Thank you for that.

On the whole, my grim faces did not go to waste and more so, they were condoned. Heck yes, now that's what I call a shoot. Couldn't get your hands on the print? Check out the full article here.

Stay tuned. Stay blessed.



P.S. These images are outtakes from The Lake Magazine shoot.

  4. Tony, I "knew" you for a brief moment but I recently discovered your work and realized that I knew nothing.

    Your work and your drive speak volumes for you. I realize
    now that while I could finish talking about myself in a day, you are doing what you love so well, it will last generations. Keep at it!!

    I can see you are making a success of it and I am certain the world will see you shine.

  5. For people who already understand the technology and its benefits, should we be directing our brothers, our brothers or our children to use as needed. Unfortunately at this time of technological tools such as mobile phones and the Internet has become such a way of life, until there is a rumor that says if you do not have a mobile phone is not slang, if not the internet was clueless, like :
