I was born and brought up in South Africa, however I have been living in the UK for 8 years now. My first SLR purchase was here and it was a Pentax MZM, fully manual camera. I then did a photogrpahy course: Small Format Cameras and Dark Room Technique. Recently I switched to digital with a 20D and this year invested in a 5D due to taking on a lot more weddings and portraits.
I was working as a photographic retoucher for the L'Oreal Group at The Body Shop for a year, and recently gone freelance. I now work for photographers including Mario Testino, Liz Collins, Corrine Day, David Sljiper, Miguel Reverengio...
