ABOUT

Hello. I am a South African, Durban raised, London charged, converted Italian and Amsterdam based photographer, art director and visual designer.

Incorporating my absolute obsession for the black and white image, the beauty of a face and the touch of light, I find myself crafting photography around inspirational imagery and endless experiences with an insatiable hunger. As a visual designer and art director I work for an advertising agency, J Walter Thompson Amsterdam. As a self taught photographer I have been fortunate enough to explore my medium through my visual design and art direction. My work has been featured in numerous advertisements, magazines, books, catalogues and online content.

My style could be described as a combination of portrait, lifestyle and conceptual photography. This year I launched one of my biggest projects to date, collaborating with a great friend and phenomenal chef Robbie Postma.

M E N U, a series of portrait photographs shows a fresh and unique take on photographing food. Like art, or actually anything in life, food will gain more emotional value when you know the story behind it. So, instead of focusing on a finessed dish on a plate, MENU takes you back to the origin of creating a menu. In April 2017, MENU went viral and was showcased in numerous blogs, news sites and newspapers around the world as well as published in many different magazines making three cover publications. Some of the highlights were Munchies VICE, The Independent, Huffington Post, FHM, FONK, TIME - Food and Wine, L'OBS, MSN , PetaPixel, La Repubblica , Shots, Spiegel, The Drum and has been featured on TV Shows in China and Russia. Food Exhibitionism was a campaign that was run with images and has been shortlisted at Cannes 2017, selected for Leuzer’s Archive 200 BEST AD PHOTGRAPHERS 2018/19, Cover Image for Luzuers Archive 2017, LIA Awards 2017, WPPED Cream awards 2017.

As for me! I am a husband to my beautiful wife and an extremely blessed father of three. My family is everything to me; the pure essence and meaning to life. I am an extreme sports addict, fisherman that hates anchovies and a lover of the outdoors, architecture and red wine. I love a challenge and everything that surrounds it. Lets make some epic work!

 

Thanks for visiting.
