Welcome to my crazy corner of the internet! I can only hope that you like what you have come across so far and trust me, there's plenty more to come.
Photography started out as a hobby for me when I was 13 years old. Little did I know that I would be lucky enough to pursue my talent and love for being creative as a career. Being a young and motivated individual, I believe that I have always tried to live my life to its fullest and learn from people and experiences. At the age of 21, I made a huge life decision to hop on a cruise ship after graduating from the Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography, and start my journey as a cruise ship photographer. This journey allowed me to work and travel the world, opening up new creative doors and opportunities which I will be forever grateful for. In just over a year, I have been fortunate enough to have visited 15 countries and 45 cities.
After my first 6 months on board I was promoted from general photographer to Portrait Artist, which is the ship's private studio portrait artist. As a Portrait Artist, I quickly became more dedicated to my job. I developed skills that I did not even know I had. I was forced to come out of my shell and became a stronger, self-motivated individual. This experience has with out a doubt shaped me into a more accomplished creative.
Being able to connect with people from all over the world, I have gained a more worldly and open approach to life. I love to collaborate with likeminded creatives whether it be in music or fashion. People have always been a subject that I am drawn to. To be able to capture raw moments, pure love and joy is the reason why I enjoy what I do.
