PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER
I have always loved being the artist behind the lens of a camera.  My roots hail from South Africa, my home country.  After years of studying, I was fortunate to work as an apprentice for a number of experts in the field of film as well as photography. Photography and my love of sailing, has carried me across the oceans to many exotic locations such as French Polynesia, Antigua, Marquises, Seychelles, Bali, Maurice and Switzerland to mention just a few. I’ve been able to showcase my talents and have built up a diverse number of stock images for various stock libraries, coffee table books and magazine houses around the world. Through my extensive travels, I have been privileged to work with an array of internationally renowned hotel groups, chefs and food gurus. Whilst my portfolio of clients is expansive, including Marriott International Group of hotels, The Atlantis The Palm, Dubai Holding, Alec Construction, Zaya, Costa Mena, Al Barari, OgilvyOne, Landor, Spinneys, American Garden, Gulf News, Emaar and Tecom, just to mention a few. This professional website carries my formal portfolio, I created an online art gallery, The Mulberry Movement, to showcase my artistic side (www.themulberrymovement.org). This art gallery is dedicated to sharing, respecting and rejoicing in the world that we occupy by selling beautiful prints to people who care about our planet and our world. We celebrate nature in all forms. We have an association with a company called 8Billion Trees and we plant a tree every time an art work is sold and printed.
