My background is in the advertising industry – i have lived and breathed creativity, design and photography for more than 18 years. I was an Art Director with TBWA Hunt Lascaris in Johannesburg for a few years before moving to a web design company as the Creative Director.
When my son was born in 1999, I decided it was time to change the way I worked and try to do it on my own terms.
So, with my wife (An award winning designer herself) as the design partner, I started a company called Kitsch Design that provides graphic and interactive design services. During this time i shot a variety of images for our clients as and when they needed them, but it was only in 2004 that I decided to start shooting weddings and have not regretted it for a moment.
I don’t know what it is about weddings. The vibe, the people, the wonderful details that someone has agonized over for hours and hours – maybe it is the stress and anxiety of getting the best possibly pictures for the couple every time.
Did I mention I love weddings?
I try to capture weddings and lifestyle family portraits as naturally as possible. 99% of my clients will tell me that they don’t think they are photogenic and never look good in pictures, so when they love the images I take for them it is the ultimate in job satisfaction.
Actually, this is not a job, this is who I am.
