the heart of an artist - the eye of a storyteller
I am a curious observer of places and people. Being creative is my life and I love being able to share my insights and viewing points with my clients. With over 17 years of experience in photography, I have come to realize that photography must evoke a response, a desire in the viewer.
As an trained Visual Journalist, Social Anthropologist, and Depth Psychologist I understand the importance of observation; remaining close to the image, while being an active participant through witnessing. I have been fortunate enough to work with clients who operate on a global scale, as well as documenting some highly successful start up’s, sharing their journey and reflecting their culture and growth.
I have also exhibited my fine art photography internationally with group exhibitions from Rotterdam to Milan and held various successful solo exhibitions in South Africa.
Documentary, street, and urban landscape photography is a passion of mine and I have documented stories all over the world, from London, Kigali, Ho Chi Min, New York, to Zanzibar, Johannesburg and Cape Town.
Working with me means access to my experience, sharing of my technical know-how, as well as my experience as a story teller and creative entrepreneur.
