How I got started

I was born in 1996 on December 13th and I am proud South African. My photography started in 2011 during my grade 9 school year when I discovered my school, Hilton College, hosts a photography competition for a yearly calendar. I managed to come first with a photo of an Egyptian goose (check the "WILD" page) and that sparked my interest and passion for photography. Between the age of 4 and 6, I got my first camera which was one of the well known disposable kodak cameras and I am now using a Nikon D600 along with some Nikon lenses and one Sigma lens.


My passion is wildlife photography, fishing, and anything outdoors, but I also enjoy almost any other form of photography you can think of.


Please feel free to contact me anytime on my CONTACT page and even sign up for my Updates.


In the meantime, I'll be behind my camera.

Where am I now?

In 2015 I made the move to Texas for University at Texas A&M. As of fall of 2020 I am finishing up my final year of my degree in Leadership (you never heard of a leadership degree I bet) and I am double minoring in Business and Wildlife & Fisheries Sciences. Another cool thing about me is that I got married on January 5th, 2020 to the beautiful lady in the picture below! Life has never been this good and I wouldn't trade it for anything!


Right now I am investing a lot more into fishing and I wish I could spend 7 days a week out on the water! While I absolutely love fishing I am still keeping up with photography. While I don't have time to be doing them both as separate hobbies I have, in a way, combined them through my creative outlet of Instagram. Both my personal Insta page and my fishing Insta page (@thelateral_line) are linked at the bottom of this page.


Who am I?

Well to start, I despise desks. Kinda random I know, but let me fill you in.

I’m a creative mind. Numbers, paperwork, and office organization bother me. I like hammocks, trees, and boats. Just the thought of a career behind a desk is enough to make me pace. Ask me what I want to do with my life and somewhere in the answer I’m going to tell you that I plan on staying away from a desk job. I am way too impatient to sit at a desk all day every day. I need to be outside

Now you might be thinking “ok so you hate desks. What does that have to do with anything?”

Outside is where I find my heart. God didn’t give me the mind of a mathematician. He gave me the mind of a creative thinker. A mind that never rests and is always moving. I’m an adventurer. I dream to explore mountains and oceans and anything wild and crazy. So with that said I think you might see how a desk would drive me nuts. One of my wild escapes is photography. Growing up in South Africa I had many opportunities to explore the wild and see some African animals. I soon found that with photography I could catch a single moment and make a fraction of a second tell a life story.

When someone says a photo is worth a thousand words I believe a photo is so much more. A single photo tells a story of a moment, or a day, or even the story of a life. A photo shows the emotion of the subject, whether it be the laziness of a lion or the chaos of a city. A photo can bring awareness to a need from the eyes of a child. A photo can instill an idea, a passion.

A single photo can be so powerful. That is why photography has become my desk free passion.

Other than photography, my favorite things include hammocking, fishing (hence I like boats), building fpv race drones, anything outdoors, listening to Will Reagan, and spending time with someone special (my wife if you didn't pick up on that).

If you have any questions, need advice, need help with something, or just want to talk give me a call.
