About me

I grew up on our family farm in Rawsonville, Western Cape, where sunlight became my best friend. In a simple, small country side town, I learned to use natural elements like sunlight, clouds and water to highlight the details most photography doesn’t capture. 

 

Since I was 11 years old I did my friends hair, makeup, styling and then photographed them. At 16 years old, I got my own Nikon camera and the rest was history. Early 2015 I started my own photography business while studying. In 2017 I graduated at Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography with a BA Visual Communication Degree. Makeup and Hair were always my passion, but I’m very honored to expand my skills at Alicia Buckle’s hair and makeup school this year (2018).

 

I have a passion to work with people and to make them feel very comfortable in front of the camera. I see myself as a perfectionist and edit every photograph to perfection. Natural light, simplicity and “in the moment” photographs is my goal for every shoot.
