Behind The Lens

Welcome to my website!  Here is a little bit more about me…

Thinking back, I cannot pinpoint exactly where my love for photography started, but it was strongly influenced by my dad. He always had a camera/video camera handy on our family holidays.  I soon realised that these family pictures became my memories.  This is what sparked my passion, since my memory seems to fail me at times.

In 2011, I took the first step in making my dream a reality. With my dad’s old Canon DSLR I completed a 13 week course in photography in Stellenbosch.  I have since upgraded to a professional Canon DSLR and accompanying lenses.

Step 2 was gaining more experience. I had the privilege to assist + second shoot for two wonderfully talented photographers, both with their own unique point of view.

Thank you to June Joubert + Jac Kritzinger for allowing me such an opportunity and teaching me how to become a better photographer. I intend to keep on learning as I believe that it is important to keep evolving and adapting

This is part of step 3. Taking the plunge and making it on my own!
Other things I LOVE:  Travel, Chocolates, Wine, Animals, Cooking and my husband Jaco (not necessarily in that order)

Thank you for visiting, I look forward to hear from you …
