My path as a photographer is nothing you would consider ordinary or traditional, maybe that counts for
my non-traditional style of photography.I didn’t have a camera handed down to me by my parents or
grandparents, instead I picked up a camera for the first time in late 2007 to take pictures for
digital editing and fell in love with the art of photography and lighting.
After that I pursued a career in photography by studying at a photography college, received a
degree in professional photography and was awarded outstanding achievement for my portfolio.
My inspiration was obtained through famous and creative photographers; the likes of Dave Hill,
Tim Tadder encouraged me to think ‘out of the box’, to read light, feel it
and see how it has the ability to create a dramatic image in just seconds.
“Become a master in lighting and you can achieve anything”, were some wise words that have been
extremely motivating to me and has contributed to my success and one of my greatest passions.
After shooting and editing for almost 2 years, I now work as a freelance photographer. I aim
to be well known in the South African photography industry and have my work be involved in
big commercials and advertisements. I would like to share my software experience with a wider
audience and give beginner photographers the opportunity to learn and use these tools effectively
and as a result hope to become an innovator in Photography Software.
I have developed some useful tutorials, which can be viewed on a number of social media platforms
as well as in the Tutorial section on my website. I also offer personal coaching, post-production training
and a host of different workshops, which I hope will allow me to share my experience with audiences
across a host of different media channels.
In order to pursue a successful career, I believe one has to be willing to push the boundaries.
Be optimistic, believe in yourself and you will go far!
