I am a Professional Commercial Stock Photographer and Profoto Ambassador.
From my portfolios you will see that my work is mainly focussed around creating usable commercial images for clients. With the trick being to create images that will please a client without knowing who they are!
I am also a Lighting Designer for the spectacularly talented Beauty, Health and Lifestyle Photographer (and also my wife and partner) Luba V Nel
Lastly, I present a series of workshops from the basics to advanced lighting and techniques. I have always found the you learn so much more and advance your own skill so much faster and higher by teaching others than by trying to hide away your skills and techniques just for yourself and your own clients!
When trying out new things and teaching techniques to others. This is the motto I live by:
The Warrior of Light does not need to prove that someone else's path is wrong to have faith in his own path. His secret in life is to fall seven times, and rise up eight times...
