I have lived and breathed creativity for more than 20 years working in the advertising and web design industry. 

In the beginning, I used to direct photographers thinking they had such a cool job never considering that I might one day be a photographer as well.

1999 was the year I started a boutique design studio called Black Rooster Studios with my design partner and amazing wife Lindsay (Who I love and adore :-)). We aim to produce amazing work for our clients – from logo design, annual reports and marketing to the full range of photography you see on my website.

The photography business started out of a desire to keep as much of the skills (and revenue) in-house. So I bought a camera and today I find myself in some pretty cool locations meeting the most amazing people.
Sometimes in the most amazing locations meeting the coolest people.
Everyone has a story and even if I don’t photograph their story, I get to chat to them when shooting their food, interiors or products.

I love variety, it keeps me fired up and inspired. Interiors, portraits, landscapes, newborn babies, food, architecture…

I operate from my studio in Kyalami, which I hope to expand to accommodate the type of shoots I love doing.
I travel throughout South Africa and beyond our borders when the project requires it. To date I’ve been commissioned to shoot in Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Mauritius and Zambia.

I am 100% vaccinated and ready to go 🙂
