About



I am an amateur photographer living in South Africa. By day I’m a bit of a nerd working as a researcher and lecturer at the University of Stellenbosch whilst finishing up my PhD in Development Economics. By night I bake, do yoga, take my dogs for walks in the mountains and play boardgames. I love using film for all of my photography. All photos (except otherwise indicated) on this blog were taken by me using on of my vintage film cameras, my favourite being a Pentax Honeywell, the first film camera I ever bought. So please, remember to give credit where credit is deserved. I hope you enjoy looking around :)

  1. I hope you know how fabulous I think this is. I’ve wanted to go to SAfrica since I popped out of the womb and now I can at least find some solace in living vicariously through you and your amazing photography. Thank you.

    And the fact that you have awesome sause in your title just made my week.

    • haha thanks so much! South Africa is a really inspiring place, I feel extremely lucky to live here. If you ever get the chance you should definitely come experience it for yourself :).

  3. You are quite awesomesauce yourself. I adore all of your pictures! I’m curious to hear what brought you to South Africa? I’ve been thinking of studying abroad and always had South Africa in Johannesburg in the back of my mind.

    • Thanks Kristen :)

      I actually live in South Africa (born and raised) and study abroad in Amsterdam for a few months a year. Johannesburg is an amazing city, so much good energy. I’ve been living there for the past 9 months and am loving it!

  4. You don’t look like an amateur photographer to me, I love your photos!

  8. I am glad I found your blog! Film photography is really something special and I see a lot of people going back “to the future”.

    • Thank you so much. Capturing life on film gives me such pleasure, I can’t imagine never using it. I love your photo blog as well, especially your family portraits, so intimate and full of love.
