Although I’ve always loved reading and telling stories, I discovered the beauty of telling stories through photographs when I studied photojournalism at Rhodes University. With 10 years experience in many different areas of photography, from wildlife to weddings, the thrill of capturing real and beautiful moments as they play out in front of me is still strong.
Although I pride myself in excellent work and creating beautiful images that tell a story and move you, I bring so much more to your shoot, whether it be a wedding or a family shoot. I am friendly, relaxed and down to earth and love making you feel relaxed and at ease in front of the camera. I will work with your preferences and respect your requests, but I will also probably push you just a little further than you are comfortable to create the best photos possible. I will do my best to capture natural moments as unobtrusively as possible, but I will also help you find what looks best, like natural poses and happy moments. It’s very likely that I’ll let out a squeal of excitement as we are shooting in the last golden sunlight of the day and I glance at my camera and see how beautiful your photos are.
I am based in a small town called Alexandria in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, but have travelled extensively and love exploring new places and meeting new people and cultures and telling their stories.
This site showcases my wedding and family work, as well as some older brand work. If you would like to have a browse through my journalism work, feel free to check out Spekboom Media.
