Hi! I'm Courtney, the girl behind the camera. I am a 25 year old living in Durban, South Africa and I find joy in capturing moments and memories.
I like to think that my creative outlook on life reflects in the photos that I take, giving them each an authentic and natural element.
I love that I have been given this opportunity to live out my passion daily, while being able to meet new people and bring them joy.
A bit about me:
I got my first camera for my 12th birthday and then my first DSLR camera for my 14th birthday. Growing up watching my mom take photos and learning everything from her, it is no surprise that these cameras were the best presents I had ever been given. In 2019 I bought my own BRAND new Sony Alpha. I am completely self taught and am continually learning new tricks and techniques. Although photography is my daily joy, it is not my only passion. I have always loved dancing, singing and basically most art forms. I have my Masters Degree in Psychology and work at a special needs school Monday to Friday (with photoshoots before and after work).
My favorite thing about photography:
BY FAR, my favorite feeling is the one I get when I turn the camera around during a shoot and show my client a photo that I just took. No one seems to react the same way, some get shy and look away, others cannot believe that the photo is of them. I LOVE making others feel beautiful and happy.
Contact me and lets book you a shoot; whether it is your WEDDING, you with a friend, your family, your dog or an event, I'm your gal!
