This page is about me- but it’s actually about you, getting to know me.

I am a Pretoria- based photographer- part Zulu, part Congolese, part Afrikaans. There are many things that I love- writing, music, my family and kids are high on the list- but then of course there is photography. I describe photography as the bridge in the theme-song of my life.

I am Kwa-Zulu Natal grown, nurtured in the Midlands and settled now in the Capital City. My love affair with making pictures started in 2009 with the purchase of my first SLR “proper” camera and it has been a beautiful journey of discovery since. Somewhat of an obsession!

Everything can be beautiful from the right angle, and so I shoot just about anything I can find but most of all I enjoy shooting people…as in shooting pictures of people- portraits. Be it at parties, corporate events, weddings and the like…as long as there are people.

My style can be described as photojournalistic (trying to capture the moment in its truest form) though I am always challenging myself to do something creative, new and amazing- to explore and try new techniques and to find new ways of making creative images. At the end of the day, my goal is to get viewers of my pictures to say “wow!, that’s a magnificent photograph!”.

Contact me, I would love to hear from you. smile(at)magnificphoto.co.za
