In 2010 I took on a project that would change my life forever. I worked on a website through my Web and Graphic Design Company T13 Design, for the Africa Photographic Awards with Lou Coetzer, a world-renowned photographer, in conjunction with Nikon South Africa. As the project drew to completion, I asked Lou if as payment he could give me a Nikon D60 DSLR camera, as I was getting more and more requests from clients whether I take photos for websites as well. He did me one better and rewarded me with a Nikon D80 DSLR with a 18-200mm VR lens.
From the first day, holding that D80 in my hands, photography very quickly became an obsession and I would read every photographic magazine I could lay my hands on for inspiration. Every opportunity would be spent on trying different settings on the camera to see what effect it had.
Today my equipment has improved vastly from the D80, and I have also obtained a Diploma of Photography as well as a Wedding Photography Diploma from The Photography Institute. Some of my images have been featured in local photographic magazines, and have also won some awards on online community sites and the odd photography competition.
Some photographers believe you should choose a genre and stick to it, but for me photography is a passion that I need to constantly feed and I take every opportunity I can to do so.

This is the only time in your baby’s life that he or she will be this small.
Ever heard the term “They grow up so fast”? Nothing is more true.
This is the perfect time to capture their innocence. So small and fragile. Newborn sessions require a lot more care, planning and patience than a regular session and is kept relaxed and slow paced to ensure we get the most natural images.
Newborn shoots are best photographed within the first two weeks of the baby’s life as they are more sleepy so it is easier to position the baby. Older babies are more alert and more difficult to pose.

From food to electrical equipment, interiors to staff pictures, I will ensure that your products stand out amongst those of your competitors.
