I have a fast question... Does anyone of you know if there's a active trading floor in Cape Town that would allow someone like me to visit to take several 'action' photographs... I want to create a collection of black and white trader shots... would be awesome :) if anyone has a contact i could ask. please let me know. thanks
Somehow I don't think Werner has got five or six traders sitting cramped together in front of their PC's in mind. Wide, expansive trading floors are few and far in beteen in SA, and I willing to bet the biggest and most impressive are all in Jhb.
I know what to expect... :) don't worry about that... i want the view of the pc's next to each other (using dept-of-field want them blurred out and focus on the single guy working on his pc, but they should have many screens (like the typical trading station)... the shot needs to be simple and clean, but have a core focus, the single trader working with the numbers on the screen but with a out-of-focus background of the trading floor... Simon, I have a friend working at Cadiz, will see what he has to say. thanks.
well there are three I know of... 1. Nedbank has its bond trading floor in Cape Town at the BOE building at the waterfront... then there is Cadiz as Simon says..and then there is Coronation in Claremont above the Pick N pay...I might be able to get you in to the 1-3 I will ask arround... but you not really going to get an action photo of a trader.. all they do is sit on their ass and push buttons...
