I’m a photojournalist based in Victoria Falls comfortable with a diverse range of settings and happy to travel any where to document your memories. After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from Napier University Edinburgh, I spent six months at IHECS (Institut des Hautes Etudes des Communications Sociales) Brussels, a Journalism & Communication school where I specialized in reportage photography. After graduating I was selected for a placement in the Fine Arts department of Rhodes University, South Africa to work under world renowned photographer Obie Oberholzer. His passion for portraiture is contagious illustrated in his many books.
My love for photography was passed down from my father who handed me my first camera on my eighth birthday and whose continued support in my chosen field offers daily sustenance. The combination of my love for images and words is what formed the name Lens Lingo. Like the Magnum photographers of old, pictures that stay with us for a life time are the ones that draw upon a well of emotion and remain etched in our souls forever.
In the words of Henri Cartier-Bresson, photography is “a curiosity about what is going on in the world, and a desire to transcribe it visually.”
