So right up, I’ll most likely tell you that I’m a hugger. I love people, faces, interaction, moments and I’ve always been keen on photography as long as I can remember. At age 12 I was given my first camera, and was hooked. After high school I attended Pretoria Technikon for a 3-year photography diploma. Thereafter a 2 year gap found me documenting all the places I visited like Alaska, South America, Mexico & Europe.
Returning to South Africa I based myself in Cape Town assisting international photographers for several years and then went to Hamburg to carry on assisting and apprenticeships. I returned to Johannesburg two years later in 2004 where I started shooting for magazines like Cosmo, Elle, SL, FHM, True Love, Men’s Health and by natural progression started shooting advertising commissions with The Jupiter Drawing Room, TBWA, Y&R, JWT and Ogilvy. I’m happy to be based in Cape Town and commute to my regular clients in Johannesburg and wherever the story takes me.
There is nothing more essential to me than capturing a moment that tells a thousand stories. My many travels have exposed my love for landscapes and ever changing face of humanity. This is what I love to do, and do it with passion to achieve capturing that essential ultimate moment in time. Act now, act with purpose, do it with conviction and intuition and you have something special.
