African Photojournalism Database
I am an experienced visual journalist skilled in photography, photojournalism, feature writing, news reporting, design, multimedia journalism and documentary filmmaking.
In June 2019 I completed a master’s degree in journalism at the Konrad Adenauer Asian Centre for Journalism at Ateneo De Manila University in Manila. I developed outstanding writing and research skills under the supervision of skilled international professors. My writing skills combined with my visual arts experience gained over years as a photographer and photojournalist, help me to create stories that are visually compelling.
My best training and field experience was in newsrooms in South Africa. In these news rooms of daily and weekly newspapers, I learned to adapt easily to fast-paced environments. For over 4 years I worked on many breaking news and investigative stories as a contract photojournalist for Media 24/ Foto24 in South Africa.
I lived in Asia for 10 years. In my studies and working experiences in Asian countries, I developed a very strong multimedia skill set. Oftentimes, I had to work on my own on challenging stories, in places where English is not spoken. I have extensive experience working with translators.
My passion is visual storytelling; I can produce work for newspapers, magazines, online, TV and radio. I can storyboard, write and edit. I can create photo features, multimedia short films, video and also info graphics. My skills enable me to work on any media platform and I can produce not only engaging, but also high-quality stories.
Traveling and adventure is my life. I have travelled extensively over the past 23 years. I have explored over 60 countries and worked and lived in South Korea, Taiwan, Germany, South Africa, Namibia, the UK, Israel, Spain, the US and Canada. I also was privileged to give journalism lectures in India.
My work focus on cultures, cultural traditions, art, the environment and the human condition.
I am currently living in Germany.
