When I upgraded my Nikon Digital camera I asked Claude to help me. He was remarkably patient and skilled in his knowledge of my Nikon(and others) and I learnt an incredible amount from him. In addition he assisted me enormously in the analysis and processing of my images which was very beneficial. I have no hesitation in recommending Claude to all aspirant and seasoned photographers.

When we needed someone to take sample pictures for our online shop, I didn’t know where to look and fortunately we found Claude.It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Claude, his passion for his job is evident in his work and his energy when he arrives at a client. A few times I found myself sitting with him while he took pictures just because listening to him and seeing his passion was enjoyable to be around. I would recommend Claude to anyone without a doubt as I know you will be in good hands if he is around.

Passion for what you do is an important part of success, and since I took my first photograph at the age of seven with a Box Brownie I have had a passion for photography. Making the change to a digital camera over twelve years ago I have embraced Photoshop and the digital darkroom.

I consider myself a generalist and work with all genres as a photographer, but I really greatly enjoy nature photography. I am an accredited photographic judge and have started two Photographic Competitions. The International Clivia Society’s Photo Competition as well as organising the Kirstenbosch Photographic Competition. I have numerous photographs published by the Clivia Society in their annual where I co-edited, especially the photographs, for eleven years and designed the book for five.

I also provide a number of workshops that cater for all levels of photographers, both from beginners with camera technique to post processing workflow. You can learn more about them here.
