Photography, my passion... 

Welcome and thank you for viewing my portfolio. I'm a full time photographer, based in Cape Town and I have been doing photography since 1998 when I was still in school, and got my diploma in professional photography in 2001. Have been doing photography full time since 2008.

These images are a collection of some of my favourite images over the years, some of them taken on slide film, 35mm negative film and digital media.

I've done close to 100 weddings in the past few years all over Cape Town and the Western Cape and there is almost nothing I haven't seen or experienced at those weddings.

My versatile photographic skills enable me to deliver professional results in the different genres of photography. That includes the professional composition, the capturing and the final retouching of the image.

I have various personal projects I work on part time: landscape and wildlife photography are some of them and the other is liquid photography in my studio.

I have also traveled extensively throughout Europe (Spain, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, France, UK) and taken stock photographs and supplied some of my work to

I've done some pretty interesting photo shoots over the last few years, from a studio product shoot in an ice cold butchery to capturing aerial images in a micro-lite over a golf course in the Freestate. No job is too big or too small.
