I am a practicing photographer in Gauteng on the East Rand. I am also willing to travel if necessary. I specialise in wedding photography, event photography, portrait and studio photography and just about any kind of photography you can think of. I have done them all.
You might ask yourself why you should use me as your photographer, or rather what sets me apart from other photographers? First of all I always try to bring a unique and personal touch to every photo-shoot. To give you a fresh and original look in the final photos is always my priority. There is a secret to the success of a photo-shoot which I learnt while studying documentary photography. To know your subject should always be a top priority. The more I know about you and what you want from your photo-shoot the better results I will get, as will you. After all these are your memories that are being recorded, not mine. How you want to portray yourself is important. Not how I want to portray you.
Qualifications in Photography
I have two qualifications in Photography. One of these qualifications is the basics of photography from School of Photography, and the other is the very well reputed Photojournalism and Documentary photography from the Market Photo Workshop in Newtown, Johannesburg.
Both of these courses give very practical experience. They are not just studying photography from a book. They force you out into the world to photograph content. Which in my opinion is the best way to learn.
Most noteworthy other achievements are being a finalist for the Tierney Fellowship and Edward Ruiz Mentorship which are two very well known documentary photography funding opportunities . Interning at the Mail and Guardian Newspaper as well as working for JHB Live were also valuable experiences – examples of this work is here.
In conclusion what you need to remember most of all is that photography is my passion. As a result I will always give 110% to my work. If anything I am almost overqualified to do the job. Seems like I really love what I do and I live for new and exciting ideas to capture.
