Thank you for visiting my website.
I’ve been working as a professional photographer for over 25years, and have been privileged to be part of this industry in South Africa. Photography has been part of my life since I can remember, going back to being in junior school and buying my first camera, a Kodak 110. But it was only later when I was in my 20’s that photography really became a part of me. I bought my first 35mm camera, a Pentax MG and my first 120mm, a Yashica D. Still today, this square format that I first learnt on the Yashica is my favourite. So much so that I bought a Mamiya C220 and C330 and then moved on to a Hasselblad 500c and currently have a Hasselblad 501c.
Camera technology has evolved, so when Canon brought out their first autofocus 35mm, I bought myself a Canon EOS 620. Of course, digital came a long a few years later, but by this time I was working for one of the biggest media houses in South Africa and had the opportunity to work with many other cameras and formats on the market from 4″x5″, 6×7, 6×6, 645 and 35mm.
The first digital camera I worked with had a medium format 6Mp digital back, fitted to a Mamiya 645. My personal favourite for many years after that was the 16Mp Canon EOS 1Ds MKII. Digital has progressed to 100Mp in medium format and 50Mp in 35mm cameras which are also capable of shooting video.
My portfolio is made up of commercial work on editorials, books, packaging, covering mostly food, people and decor. Please have a look at the commissioned work menu for these images. From time to time, I have the opportunity to do personal projects. These can be viewed in the personal work menu as well as my photo art store.
I’ve been blessed to have been part of both worlds in photography, having worked on film and digital, being able to experience the darkroom and the digital darkroom. They say “a picture is worth a thousand words”, but photography is more than images and words. Photography creates memories. Photography creates emotion. Photography creates.
My philosophy in life is to: Love God, Treasure Life, Capture The Moment.
