I am an enthusiastic and passionate individual who believes in thinking outside the box, therefore I treasure creativity and uniqueness in a world where the cliche reigns predominant. I am particularly discerning when it comes to detail, be it grammatical or artistic, and apply myself fully to the task at hand, whatever it may be. Beauty, dance, and portrait photography are my passion - I love capturing beauty in splendid ways, whether it is the creativity of a makeup artist's vision, the love between a couple, or the self-possession and assurance of a woman who wants a shoot done just for herself. I'm also a high-end retoucher with years of experience capable of delivering magazine quality beauty and fashion images. If you are looking to have your family or wedding photos edited (or re-edited, if you are not happy with how they came out from the original photographer), this is a service I also offer. If you have any queries, please feel free to contact me. In terms of qualifications I studied at the University of Cape Town where I graduated with a BA in Film Studies and a First Class BA(Hons) in English Language and Literature. I have since attended various photographic courses where I developed my skills as a photographer, citing my experience and study of cinematography as the basis of my aesthetic knowledge with regard to lighting and composition, etc. I have worked in retail and as a freelance retoucher, photographer, proofreader and editor. Please click on the website link above to see my photographic portfolio. All images on my site were retouched by myself.
