A documentary traveller that captures landscapes, environmental portraits and travel stories . I am fascinated by Anthropology, human behaviour and societies and the influence of circumstances and politics on daily lives. Since 2011 I have done projects for the UK, Open University of the Arts on Street Vendors, White Poverty, Sangomas in Venda and People living on a landfill site.
All of this in a documentary style with film, digital and videos. I still love shooting film 120 and 35mm. There is one special person that can still develop slide E6 in Pretoria and he does all my development.
Since 2009 I have decided to enter some of my photographic work in local and International competitions and have won over 30 awards. I find it a personal challenge to enter competitions to see if I can still be creative and competitive at such a late stage in my life. I keep on doing projects and drive myself to take on larger projects to keep my curiosity flowing.
I started in Corporate Communication and PR with video and printing productions and later on I was asked to lecture software to University students due to my knowledge base. After that I was hooked and later on, 2010 I started teaching permanently with research projects in between.
