I am a wedding, portrait and fine arts photographer based in Durbanville (Cape Town), South Africa
My love of photography was kindled at a very young age when my dad taught me to take photos with his old SLR camera. And so, with the click of a button a lifelong passion was born.
After school, I studied Fine Arts at the University of Stellenbosch, majoring in photography. While there, I spent two years as photographer’s assistant to the celebrated fine arts photographer Jean Brundrit.
I have been working as a professional photographer since 2006 and I have experience in a range of different styles of photography. My first love, however, will always be photographing people, especially spontaneous and unposed, documentary-style portraits.
What is done in love is done well – Vincent van Gogh
I think the secret to taking a great photograph is that the photographer should be as unobtrusive as possible – it’s when people forget that they are being photographed that you get the best shots. I can give direction if I have to, but I prefer to give my subjects space to be themselves. It is important to me that each of my photographs should capture my subject rather than show off my photographic style.
I offer a range of different packages for all budgets, including both studio and location shoots. I am willing to travel anywhere to photograph your special day. I specialize in weddings, portraits (maternity, newborn, toddlers, birthdays and families) as well as fine arts photography. Please contact me for a price list and a free wedding consultation.
