TRAVEL EDITORIAL AND LODGE PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN CAPE TOWN

I create high-quality, travel-orientated photographic and written content from within Africa and its islands. This incorporates adventures, landscapes and bucket-list experiences both great and small. That feeling when your heart swells and sings with elation? That’s what I seek. I’m completely enamoured with, and humbled by, the beauty that life so casually throws at you.

Besides travel writing and photography, I photograph lodges. The lodges that I work with are in incredible locations, have inspiring designs and, ideally, strong environmental and social ethics. It’s been a pleasure working with organisations that care.

I want my images to showcase and spread the stories that I believe in. My photographic style tends towards natural and editorial, clean and atmospheric. I get so excited about good light, and love including flares and warmth in signature shots.

MY BACKGROUND

Born in Durban, I completed a BCOM in Marketing through UNISA and subsequently joined a commercial photographic company. I decided that travel was where I wanted to be involved, and luckily this decision coincided with a job opening at Getaway , South Africa’s oldest travel magazine.

Over four years as the Photo Editor I photographed and wrote about off-the-grid campsites, pilgrimages, new adventures and upmarket lodges. Working here was challenging, formative, and a complete blessing. I have extensive experience working under pressured situations and delivering results. One of my favourite job elements was curating and judging the Getaway Gallery, and I later on featured as a guest photo judge for the 2017 National Geographic Traveller UK competition. 

One of my greatest joys is travel through wilderness areas; the more obscure the better. Multi-day hiking, 4x4 trips and horse riding? Yes please. You'll find more about the latter at Cross the Lands, my website dedicated purely to horse travel around the world.
