Who or what got you into Photography?
Growing up I had an eye for Art and Business, I started very small back in 2015 using my “Sony Cyber-shot” digital camera and people never took me serious, then I moved to “Kodak Coolpix” which I was borrowed by my aunt Linda. As time went by in the early 2016 I had saved some few hundreds and my mother saw that I really love Photography then she bought me the Nikon DSLR which was more advanced via settings and picture control.
If you weren’t in Photography, what would you do?
If I wasn’t a photographer I’ll most definitely be a fashion designer, model or soccer player even though I considered being a deejay at times.
What is the Best and worst thing about Photography according to your experience?
The best thing is having being booked every weekend because that means more money and having your clients being satisfied, because it simply means that they’ll call again or refer their family and friends to you if they need photography services.
The worst thing according to my experience I’d say is forgetting to charge your camera, forgetting your memory cards or “Having 2 people of different skin tone in one picture” LOL.
What achievements do you have through Photography?
Having to extend my Camera with accessories and getting wedding bookings.
What are the amazing places have you travelled that made you fall more in love with Photography?
Well I went to Zeerust in North West for a wedding in 2016 and last year Bafana Stemela and I went to Sun City with Given’s Tours from Pretoria and it was an amazing experience.
One word to describe Fiasco
Understanding / Memories / Best
What changes will Fiasco Photography bring to the Media or Photography industry in the near future?
We want to introduce “video shooting” now because we’ve been limiting ourselves and most clients want pictures with videos as a package.
