I earn a living as a 3D Visual Effects Supervisor and specialise in Motion Capture for the Film and Television Industry. My passion for photography started in Art School when I studied Graphic Design and had Photography as a subject. As I live in South Africa, unspoilt wide open spaces, dark starry skies, and breathtaking wildlife is always just a road trip away.
I am especially interested in Nature photography, Astrophotography; Macro photography, and Stapeliads (a type of succulent mainly found in the arid regions of Southern Africa).

Simple, elegant and beautiful he manages to brings out the magnificent in these already stunning flowers. I look forward to fu… Read more
