Originally from Nelspruit, now living in Johannesburg. When I’m not shooting, I work in photographic retail. Photography to me is not just a job, but an obsession and a means in which I have documented my life in images.

  • Tips for Shooting Motor Sports
    Motor sports photography can be one of the most technically challenging types of photography there is. Even when you know the theory behind the right technique, that award winning photo is, many of the times, just impossible to get. Add to that the high speed action and danger of motor sports photography and you have ...
  • World Photography Day Today is World Photography day, so go out today and take at least one photo of something or someone special you love, even if it just taken on a camera phone, you’ll be contributing to celebrating a very special day indeed.

  • Olympus Tough TG-810
    The idea of having an almost unbreakable camera you can take virtually anywhere appeals to me greatly. It opens up so many possibilities of getting a shot that would have been restricted by the elements otherwise. The Olympus Tough TG-810 is the top of the range camera in the Tough range and is dust proof, ...
  • Review: Bang Bang Club the Movie
    Review by Armani Quintas
    When I was still a student studying photography, I learned about the Bang Bang Club in photographic history.

  • Essentials for Outdoor Photography Before I get started I should mention this isn’t an article on photographic equipment. This is about the often ignored non-photogtaphic equipment  that will actually make shooting easier that no outdoor shooter should be without
    Being the middle of winter, you would think an article like this would be mistimed, but South Africa still has fairly ...
  • Digital Lomography I must admit, I love lomography. I love the high contrast, the grain, the vignetting and the intentionally bad image quality. I love the retro look and the concept of taking a camera with you everywhere and shooting the odd random picture completely unplanned. Lomo has a way of taking mundane subjects and making them ...
  • Fujifilm X100 Review A few months ago when the X100 was first announced , I immediately became very excited. Despite being of a completely different generation to when rangefinders were commonplace, I love their simplicity and style of shooting. In the modern world of DSLR’s and digital compacts, rangefinders are becoming scarce. Due to ...
