Becoming a photographer was never something I saw myself doing. To be honest, I did not understand it growing up. In 2016 while on holiday in the Kruger National Park, however, I picked up a camera and an obsession was born. Since 2016 I have been learning and improving my skills; constantly trying to take my photography to the next level.
I prefer photographing wildlife, insects and landscapes to anything else. When it comes to wildlife my aim is to try and capture the animal’s personality. With macro photographs, I am also fascinated by the details that you cannot see with the naked eye and I try to showcase this in my photographs. Lastly, when it comes to landscapes, I capture the photos when I am in a location and I think to myself: Wow, this is a pretty location, I need to get a photo of this.
At the core, I believe as little as possible post-production needs to be applied to any photograph, as that is what I believe the art form is – not how good you are with Photoshop. However, when it comes to my photos, I look at each photo individually and think to myself: “How can I make this photo look better?” Sometimes the photo is fantastic as is; other times I go with a different approach and create something completely different looking from the original photo.
