DAG IN DIE LEWE VAN: 'N PROFESSIONELE JAGTER & ONDERNEMER Bell & Book het met ‘n ou-Vlammie en laevelder, Graham Sales gaan gesels oor sy beroep as professionele jagter en eienaar van sy eie jagondernemer (outfitter) Graham Sales Safaris. Hoe het dit als begin? Graham vertel dat hy van kleins af net in die veld wou wees. Hy het egter eers in sy vroëe twintigs besef dat hy jag sy beroep wil maak. Die geleentheid om probleem olifante van kant te maak in Limpopo het die wiel aan die rol gekry. In 2000 het Graham sy professionele jaglisensie verwerf en ‘n jaar vakleerlingskap onder Phil de Kock in die Limpopo Vallei voltooi. ‘n Professionele jagter mag eers na 3 jaar aansoek doen om ‘n jagondernemer te word. “Ek het eers in 2001 voltyds begin jag vir seker die mees professionele jagmaatskappy in Suid Afrika, waarna ek in 2009 op my eie gegaan het” vertel Graham.
Wat geniet jy omtrent jou beroep? “Ek is mal daaroor om nuwe mense te ontmoet en mense te gaan ontmoet by die internationale jagskoue in Amerika. Dit is ongelooflik om baie invloedryke, interessante mense van regoor Amerika te ontmoet. Sommige kliënte word baie goeie vriende aangesien mens baie tyd saam spandeer en iets in gemeen het: jag en die natuur. Almal is uniek en mens leer iets van almal.” Graham voeg by dat dit vir hom baie beteken om elke dag wakker te word met ‘n dag wat voorlê vol nuwe dinge om te beleef en te sien.
Wat is die grootste uitdaging? Graham waarsku voornemende professionele jagters dat dit soms ‘n groot uitdaging is om kliënte te werf. Om jouself te bemark en jou besigheid te bemark is ‘n belangrike deel van die jagbedryf.
Ter opsomming, wat is jou resep vir sukses in die jagbedryf? “Glo in jouself. Vertrou jouself om die regte besluite daagliks te maak. En meeste van als respekteer die natuur en elke dier daar buite. Werk jou g@t af! Niemand anders gaan dit vir jou doen nie. As dit is wat jy wil doen en passionate is oor die natuur ... dan sal jy ‘n sukses maak.”--
Om jou professionele jaglisensie te verwerf kan jy aanklop by enige plaaslike jagskool. Alvorens jy in enige provinsie mag jag, moet jy egter by die Provinsiale Natuurbewaringsgesag ‘n wetgewing toets aflê vir die provinsie waarin jy wil jag.
Om te jag is harde werk. Graham se dag begin reeds 45 minute voor sonop. Voordat die gewere en jagtoerusting op die jagvoertuie gelaai word, moet die voertuie silwerskoon wees. Dit toon respek teenoor die kliënt. Die addisionele jagtoerusting wat gebruik word sluit ‘n kamera, verkyker, tweerigting radios en ‘n range finder in.
Sy raad is eenvoudig: maak seker jy is bereid om op ‘n jong ouderdom baie hard en lang ure te werk en tyd van die huis af weg te wees. Dit is baie belangrik om ten alle tye professioneel op te tree teenoor jou kliënt en jou personeel. Graham lag en waarsku ... “Maak ook seker jy wil regtig jag en nie net met ‘n cruiser, ‘n jack russell en shooting sticks in die dorp rondry nie.
MAN ENOUGH TO DRESS LIKE A REAL GENTLEMAN?
HOE WORD JY ‘N JAGTER?
Hoe lyk jou werksdag?
Graham en sy kliënt eet ontbyt net na sonop in die jagkamp, maar middae word telkens in die bos, in die skaduwee van ‘n boom, geniet. Graham erken dat daar min spaar tyd is aangesien dit gewoonlik ver terug jagkamp toe is. Afhangende van waar mens jag kan die dae baie lank raak. Graham verduidelik dat, “Gewoonlik kom ek eers donker by die kamp, shower, gesels en herleef die dag se gebeure om die vuur, en ek gaan self eers tent toe nadat die kliënte bed toe is. Dan begin mens eers met emails. Dit is enigste tyd as mens kry as jy jou eie besigheid bestuur.”
Enige raad vir ‘n jong ou (of vrou!) op die drumpel om ook hierdie beroep na te volg?
Vir enige ander vrae, kontak gerus vir Graham: 082 449 2357 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org ... en jou grootste hoogtepunte?
MEER OOR PHASA
Graham vertel dat hy in 2004 sowel as 2007 aangewys was as die PHASA Professionele Jagter van die Jaar. (Hierdie toekenning is die grootste erkenning wat ‘n professionele jagter in Suid Afrika kan behaal.) Graham las by dat, om sy eie jagonderneming te begin, beslis ook ‘n hoogtepunt was. Oor die algemeen is dit vir hom “... ‘n groot hoogtepunt om met kliënte te jag wat WARE respek het vir die diere wat hy jag en die natuur.”
PHASA (Professional Hunters Association of South Africa) ondersteun die bewaring en ekologiese onderhoubare ontwikkeling en gebruik van natuurlike hulpbronne vir die voordeel van huidige en toekomstige generasies deur die bemarking van etiese jag.

MIND MAP SURVIVE THE DANCE Of course, Matric Farewell is a so-called “rite of passage” – a milestone on the “journey through adolescence”. It celebrates the end of school bells and text books (even if just for a few months before tertiary study starts for some). But let’s face it, sometimes the dance is not always as glamorous as it is made out to be. Yes – you know them. The girls and guys who have it all figured out for their “big day” in the spotlight. They have been choosing fabric, shoes and dates since last year June. They look forward to Matric Farewell with the cool and ease of a Gomez or Bieber on the Red Carpet. Then, there are those who are still unsure about everything – including who to ask (who they asked!), what to do – and their choice of dress/suit (was it the right choice?), they are worried about armpit sweat stains and yellow teeth - and exactly how to smile without looking like a fool next to your date. Many mere Matric mortals will ask - is it all worth it? So how does a person go about enjoying the occasion without the stress, without the worry, and making it a night to remember for all the right reasons? Well, here are a few ideas, or tips to make the occasion less of a headache and more of a wonderful memory.
1.THE DATE: This is probably the most difficult part for most people. It’s easy for those in relationships at the time of the occasion, but that’s relatively few, so what about everyone else? Remember that the person you ask to the dance is not the person you have to marry and spend the rest of your life with. Some people prefer to ask a close friend who they feel comfortable with because they know they’ll have a good time together. Others prefer to take a risk and ask a complete stranger, and that’s okay. You need to make sure that you are comfortable around that person; otherwise you will spend the evening worrying about whether or not they are enjoying themselves instead of just relaxing and enjoying the occasion yourself.
If you are unsure, team up with a group of friends and ask another group of friends. 2. THE OUTFIT? Don’t be scared to let your personality and unique style shine through. Individual taste and individual style is key. You do not have to spend a fortune on clothing that often lacks character. People can look stylish and unique on a very small budget. Don’t feel pressured to spend, spend, spend like the Gomez and Bieber of this world. Already have your dress? Wear it with confidence! Don’t compare yourself with Selena. You are gorgeous, young and unique. The colour and style of your dress will matter less in 10 years time than the smile you wore! Formal dress for gents is a lot easier than for ladies. Although, still within the constraints of a jacket and tie, let your personality shine through! Think about accessories. Scottish? You can rock that kilt! 3. THE DO’S AND DON’TS Before you read this, your parents would’ve given you a long list of do’s and dont’s for matric dance night. There are, in fact, only two things to say: firstly enjoy yourself, and secondly be safe. Do not give in to the pressures of others; do not be forced into doing anything you know is wrong or risky. You should want this occasion to be memorable for all the right reasons, and not regret it for the wrong ones. The biggest danger of any matric dance (or any other party) is the after party. Some argue that the after party offers all the risks and dangers one could imagine. Make sure you have spoken about the risks with your parents first. Tell them where you will be all evening. Make sure that you can be contacted. Have a cell phone with you at all times. Do not be forced into drinking if you do not want to, and most importantly, stay in control of your actions and decisions. Arrange for a safe lift home, and (duh) don’t get into a car with someone who has been drinking. Greg Crighton Educational Psychologist (Trust the expert!)
5 THINGS NOT TO DO: A GUYS’ GUIDE 1. DON’T RUIN YOUR PARENTS FINANCIALLY Spending a fortune isn’t the only way to look like a million bucks. Consider renting your outfit. If you are going to buy your suit or tuxedo, be practical about what you buy and whether you will have a use for it afterwards. Many young men go to university afterwards, where a good suit or tuxedo can be used again for formal social events. Most young men are very trendy and retailers will always offer something new every season - so be wise in making the correct choices to suit your pocket. 2. DON’T FALL INTO A FASHION TRAP Fashion trends in SA are 6 months behind the overseas market - so what is featured on TV or magazines might not necessarily be readily available here. Check with local retailers what is in for that particular season 3. DON’T GET IT WRONG Always check the invitation for a dress code. For black tie think Daniel Craig in a tuxedo. For a formal affair think Will Smith - you will make a dark suit look good too. 4. DON’T BE HER PARTNER IN CRIME Liaise with your partner whether she is wearing a very formal garment (long dress or ball gown) or a shorter cocktail dress. Mirror your lady’s level of dressing and step it up, or down. Never overshadow your partner - you will NEVER go wrong wearing a black tuxedo with a white dress shirt and a black bow tie. Should your partner want you to repeat a colour that she is wearing - do so with a coloured bow tie - or if you are wearing a suit pick up the colour in a tie or even a ‘pocketchief.’ Always remember it is very difficult to match a colour to perfection. Remember that photos last forever, and a bright lime green suit may make you look more like Bozo than Bond 10 years from now. 5. DON’T BE GUILTY OF AN EPIC FEET FAIL Always match your socks to your trousers - white socks are cool but an absolute no-no when dressing up for a formal occasion. Choose shoes which can be worn afterwards. Make sure to buy them some time before the event to walk them in… big ‘Bronx’ might be great with jeans but are not suitable for formal wear.

DISASTER DANCE 8 WAYS TO LOOK PRETTY RIDICULOUS ON YOUR BIG NIGHT 1. PICK THE WRONG COLOUR
Start with colour. The right colour can compliment you and let you stand out; and the wrong color can be disasterous for your skin tone. Get it wrong, and you and your dress will be screaming for the wrong attention, instead of gracefully inviting it.
2. SHOW TOO MUCH AND TOO LITTLE
If you are built like a race horse, show a little, but dont give it all away. Your Matric Farewell is an honorable event, not a catwalk. FYI: lovehandels cover them up, nobody wants to see them!
3. DO JERSEYLICIOUS
If you are a glitter girl, add some detail on your dress. But do not over do it. Style trumps sparkle every time.
4. GO SNOW WHITE
You will look like a princess in a short or long dress. But if it is short, make sure your milky legs don’t hijack the attention!
5. CINDERELLA’S SLIP-UP
Always make sure your shoes are as pretty as they are comfortable. It’s a long walk from the car to the hall and you do not want to slip and fall! Never ever wear flats in any gown. It’s one night to proudly wear heels. The secret is to practice, practice, practice. Every evening dress and body shape are complimented with high heels!
BELL & BOOK TIP: Consider High Heel Mate inserts
for high heels (see page 9). These change the way your feet sit inside your shoes, your high heels feel less high - and less painful!
6. REMEMBER RAPUNZEL
Make sure your hair compliments your dress. If you are wearing a jacket with a collar, an updo will show off your jacket, while a loose and straight hair style willl soften your strapless dress.
7. MAIDEN TO MAITRON
Do not over-do your make up. You are still young, make yourself beautiful, not older!
8. VICTORIA’S (UNCOMFORTABLE) SECRET
Ensure that there is no pinching, riding, rolling or spilling - anywhere. If you are comfortable, you will look relaxed and natural ... and your best. Article supplied by Jola. I’Langa Mall | Nelspruit
Your unique skin-tone can help you find easy ways to play up your natural beauty. From delicate porcelain, to sultry mocha ... here’s some quick hints for making the most of your own epidermal hue.
UNDERTONES: Pink and Blueish tones or Yellow undertones. (Freckled ladies should choose colours in the yellow undertones.) FOUNDATION: Soft neutral tones of foundation – that enhance your natural colouring. Blending your foundation into the neck area is paramount for fair skin types as it can look like you have a mask on, especially if the colour is wrong.
Great tip: Add a primer which might help with any discolouration, redness, patchy or blotchiness. Consider the Smashbox Primer Range. EYES: You need light fresh looking eye make-up. Rich, dark shades are too intense. Soft greys and pinks enhance fair skin. Choose brown eye liner and mascara as opposed to black which is too harsh. Earth toned eye shadow will perfectly highlight the eyes. CHEEKS: Peachy or rose coloured blusher looks the most natural on fair skin types. Pinch the apples of your cheeks to see the natural colour of blusher you should use. LIPS: Rose, honey, coral or pink tones will ensure a very natural look.
ESTÉE LAUDER MAX COVER Very Light REVLON COLOUR STAY Buff or Nude
C O N SIDE R Y O UR H AIR COLOUR: Brunettes and Redheads will make a vivid impression in warm jewel toned make-up like red lipstick, greens and copper shadows. Blondes and silver haired ladies are flattered by cool tones in blues, greens and purples and soft pink-red coloured lipstick.
C O N SIDE R Y O UR EYE COLOU R:
Also to consider is your eye colour when choosing eye shadows. Green: amethyst or gold shades. Blue: bronze or copper. Brown: emerald or amber shades.

UNDERTONES: Medium skin tones can either have a rosy complexion, cool undertone, or golden, yellow undertones (warm yellow).
Science MEETS Sexy
EYES: Avoid pale colours as it can give an ashen colour and make you look washed out. Avoid colours that are too dark as it can make you skin look dull and lifeless. Choose burnished browns and earthy shades for eyes. CHEEKS: Tawny, deep peach and rose colour blushers look good on medium skin tone. Cheeks need to look like they have a natural flush to them.
Wear your sexy high heels for 3-4 times longer
LIPS: Choose shades of clove, raisin, red browns, plums and under tones of brown and mauves. Caramel, honey or peachy-taupe is also great. Remember to choose a colour that is slightly deeper than your natural lip colour. Avoid bright pinks and oranges.
Clear insert Fits all styles of high heel shoes and sandals
ESTÉE LAUDER FOUNDATION Pale Almond, Shell Beige. REVLON COLOUR STAY Sand, Medium Beige and Golden Beige.
FOUNDATION: Be very careful when looking for the best foundation as a very light colour for your skin tone can make you look unnatural and chalky (grey). Stick to warm shades of foundation, you might need 2 different colours to balance the complexion. As darker skin tones tend to get more oily, it is important to use a powder, loose or compact. YARDLEY Absolute Transulcent Loose powder is ideal for any skin tone. COLOURS: There aren’t any restrictions on the colours that you can use. The trick is to know what shades and intensities you can use. LIPS: Lipstick and gloss shades – deep burgundy, black cherry, and rich reds and purples. Add a clear lip gloss to make your lips look even more shiny. CHEEKS: Opt for apricot, wine colour and bronze shades that will enhance the cheeks and make them glow.
Great tip: To highlight the cheek bones even more, take a gold colour and with two clean fingers and apply to the top of cheek bones above the blusher you have just applied. EYES: The best options are earthy shades like chocolate browns, coppers, oranges, a hint of gold and bronze. For a bolder colouring at night use blue, green, purple or even copper! Avoid pale, frosty colours as they are very unflattering. Lilac and nude colours tend to make a dark skin toned person look washed out. ESTÉE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR Rich Ginger and Rich Cocoa REVLON COLOUR STAY Mahogany and Mocha
