See the Extraordinary in the Ordinary Novelist Marcel Proust said that the “real voyage of discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes but in seeing with new eyes” … I definitely concur. I received a God-given talent to see the extraordinary in the ordinary and my aim with my photography is to make people aware of that wonderful ordinariness around.
Lekkerte van die doodgewone dinge
die buitengewone in die alledaagse, dit wat ons maklik as vanselfsprekend aanvaar, nie noodwendig duur nie maar baie kosbaar…soek daarna om jou, koester dit, verlustig jou daarin. Dit is nooit sommer toevallig nie, dis eerder toe-val-lig. Lyne , patrone, vorms , teksture , ligskakerings , kontraste. Dikwels in die EENVOUD en dit laat jou met VERWONDERING leef in EWEWIG & stilte.

Freelance photographer, based in South Africa’s beautiful Limpopo province who fell in love with the lens and its endless possibilities. My passion is to use my camera as a creative tool to create images. No matter how sophisticated a camera is, it will merely remain a lifeless piece of equipment until it truly becomes an extension of a photographer’s creative eye and soul. To me photographs are a way of communicating; it’s an expression of who I am. To quote the Greek philosopher Aristotle “the soul thinks in images”. I cannot imagine a day without capturing and/or editing images.
My focus is on creative photography, photo décor, and lately also functional photo art. Training has come about through attending workshops and short courses, but I believe the most important growth process comes from continuously playing with the camera. My work is characterised by simplicity and guided by three rules: Looking until you truly see; seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary, and seeing what the light does. Novelist Marcel Proust said that the “real voyage of discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes but in seeing with new eyes’ … I definitely concur.”
So, what makes me click? I love …BOLD ABUNDANCE either in large format or repetition parts of the whole, cropped into detail so much that you can feel it, smell it, want to touch it the too light or too dark or too bright lines, shapes, textures, patterns, and contrasts as you unexpectedly or accidentally find them in the everyday life, not staged or setup
That makes me the accidental photographer who happens to be in that specific place in that specific ordinary life moment and WOW how exciting. In the words of acclaimed photographer Ansel Adams “sometimes I do get to places just when God is ready for someone to click the shutter”.
