As the daughter to a fine art photographer, I grew up surrounded by; cameras, lenses, studios and darkrooms, so it seems as if my fate was inevitable. In my later teens, I started to acquire a taste for photography and later I embraced the creative with open arms. To me, photography is all about capturing the beauty of a moment and making it last forever, a single moment in time that can never be repeated. A landscape captured for its simplicity on one day and it’s drama as the sun sets on another or a portrait shot under different lighting, altering the mood of a photograph, are both appealing to me. It is about that special moment frozen in time that I love the most. Along with my father, I have experienced the deserts of Namibia, been taken to old rusty scrap yards in the middle of nowhere and introduced to the splendour of the landscapes around Southern Africa. At a young age, I experienced the freedom of the outdoors and have been exposed to many different styles of photography. This has allowed me to broaden my vision and given me the chance to experiment and enjoy being behind the lens no matter what the subject. Instinctively I know that this is the start to something new and valuable in my life.
