From creating my own birthday cards for my parents when I was a youngster, taking my first photograph with my parent's Bunny camera at the same age, enjoying the manipulation of oils on canvas as a fine artist, to becoming an award-winning art director and later the executive creative director for 12 years at TBWA Hunt Lascaris Durban, and with no surprise, moving into professional photography, the passion to create has runs in my veins throughout my life.
So whether it's a pencil, paintbrush, computer mouse, or camera in my hand, my passion for creativity will find me sitting in my office late into the night.
My brand strategy insights have been honed over the last 35 years in the ad industry and are always closely linked to the creative process. Differentiating brands in a competitive economy is just as exhilarating as the creative process that brings that strategy to life.
Passing on creative skills is an essential role of experienced creative people to help drive an economy. From having mentored creative people in the creative departments of ad agencies I have worked for, to see the delight when the images of a photographer rapidly climb to the next level, is just as rewarding for me as it is for the person being mentored.
In summary, if you're looking for the expertise of a graphic designer, photographer, photo editor and brand strategist, sitting in one seat, with the added cost benefits that brings, then you're on the right website.
