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. 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.
