"Personal work, photographed at Chartwell Castle."
Location: Johannesburg, South Africa
Duration: I first developed interest in professional photography in 2005 while working as a technical consultant for the Eastman Kodak Company.
Staff: Myself, makeup artists, stylists and assistants.
Education: I studied graphic design and information technology, but later branched into art and photography through Kodak's internal educational program.
Influences: Guy Bourdin, Steven Klein, David LaChapelle have influenced me a lot as an artist.
Big Break: I was featured as a Selected Creative in One Small Seed magazine's international competition, which created massive exposure.
Technique: I want my pictures to radiate with a bright and colourful vitality. I use Corel Paintshop Pro to achieve kaleidoscopic effects with super-exaggerated manipulation, artificial scenery, and vintage coloring.
Philosophy: By taking photographs you are telling someone's story. That's always the fun part; building a message behind the photograph is what makes it more than just a photograph.
