Renico photographed rock band Queen when they appeared on stage at Sun City, three hours from Johannesburg. He found the experience exhilarating and memorable – as was photographing Senator Ted Kennedy when he visited South Africa. He’s also photographed many of South Africa’s Cabinet Ministers after the country’s first democratic elections, as well as former South African President Thabo Mbeki.
On the local front he’s worked with performing and entertainment stars Brümilda van Rensburg, Esta Terreblance, Steve Hofmeyer (CD cover), Leandie du Randt, Donna-lee Robberts, Sheena Deepnarain, Miss World Anneline Kriel and Miss Universe Runner-up Letitia Snyman, Miss South Africa Andrea Steltzer, as well as beauty queens from Germany, Switzerland and Namibia. I scouted Jo-Ann Strauss for her first modelling job, which supported her university efforts and sent her on her way. She subsequently became Miss SA, a television presenter and successful entrepreneur.
A particularly pleasing job involved former Miss World cum actress Anneline Kriel, who arrived for a magazine cover shoot in her Ferrari. Designer Marianne Fassler and a hair and make-up crew of note helped Renico create the fantasy and glamour magazine work requires.
Brümilda van Rensburg, Renico's esteemed sister, is an award-winning actress who has participated in numerous award-winning theatre, film, and TV productions. Through her he has had access to a wide variety of local luminaries. He has more than fifty magazine covers of celebrities, models and actors to his credit.
Brümilda is the proud owner of her very own acting training academy called Brumilda’s Acting Academy and Agency. Renico has supplied her with numerous pictures of her and her students for PR and web purposes and is her preferred photographer for any of her Academy and Agency pursuits.
His more informal assignments have included paparazzi work for newspapers and magazines. He has also had the honor of photographing internationally known sports stars such as golfers Gary Player and Mark McNaulty and former Springbok rugby player Naas Botha.
