I am a passionate photographer, micro pigmentation and beauty specialist and makeup artist working between Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Straight out of high school, I decided to follow my passion and headed for the art department at university. I completed five years of studies at Nelson Mandela University, where I received a BTech Degree in Photography in 2014. In 2016 I returned to Nelson Mandela University, where I attended the Business School, and received a Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration, Cum Laude. In 2017, I decided to further pursue my beauty interests, and attended Total Concept Beauty Academy with a hunger to learn more. Later that year, I opened a beauty salon, Arch Eyebrow and Beauty Bar, which has two branches – one in Johannesburg and one in Port Elizabeth. I am also a qualified micro pigmentation specialist and brand ambassador for Nouveau Contour, focusing on permanent makeup and microblading.
I am based in Johannesburg full time, however I commute to Port Elizabeth on a monthly basis for work.
I have six years experience as a makeup artist, three of which were spent working in the broadcasting industry for SABC Sport and Rooftop Productions as the head makeup artist for the Eastern Cape. I have worked on jobs ranging from weddings, to photoshoots and television commercials. My nine years as a photographer has seen me gain experience in weddings, beauty and fashion, events, food, interiors and products.
Being surrounded by bright colours, beautiful old treasures, and nature is what inspires me the most. I see the beauty in everything and everyone. My passion lies within photographing food in new and interesting ways, although I do appreciate all forms of photography, and will approach any photographic job with enthusiasm and professionalism.
