About my work

I’ve always been very fascinated with light and colour, particularly the scientific side of it – how it works and acts, and that something so technical can be used to created something beautiful. I love experimenting with the infinite possibilities from different combinations of just three things: light, composition, and the choices I make.

My mild childhood interest in photography evolved into a fiery passion and by 2008 I was doing photography full time. In 2014 I completed a Travel Photojournalism course through MatadorU. I am also involved as co-admin of the Facebook community, and curator of the Instagram feed of SA Women Photographers, a unique movement founded by Grethe Rosseaux, empowering and giving voice to womxn in the South African photography industry. Another pet project of mine is The Lightroom Classroom, the aim of which is to provide online support and inspiration to users of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, specifically in, but not limited to, South Africa.

My main focus is on commercial and editorial work for tourism, environmental and socially centred organisations. I offer high-quality imagery and a professional full service, always striving to exceed my clients’ expectations.
