He then acquired a Pentax K1000 analogue camera and began a fun trial and error process to get his photos looking like they do today. He’s recently started shooting on a Canon digital camera and he added this about the experience of shooting digital, “It’s quite a trip being able to snap away without limit after years of restrictions on film; also, it kinda speeds up the process of constantly learning and honing your craft. Then again, there is just something, a texture and feeling present in film photography that is inescapably charming in its romance.”
I talked to him about international photographers that inspire him. He admitted that he doesn’t really follow international photographers or Tumblrs but he could bring up two names of photographers that inspire him: Leif Podhajsky and Noell Oszvald.
His inspiration from local photographers comes from his really talented group of friends. This list includes John Mellish, Kent Andreasen, Kristin Lee Moolman, Adriaan Louw, Caroline Mackintosh and Hanro Havenga. He admires John Mellish and Kent Andreasen’s brilliant minds and the entire list’s constant hustle and consistent quality output.
