After finishing my schooling and college, I had no idea what to do with my life. A friend, who happened to be an alumni from SACAC suggested that I should pursue a course in photography. I took up her advice though in reality I had no prior experience in making images. While pursuing the photography course, we were taught documentary, photojournalism, street photography and also the studio in which we were taught portraiture and still life. During the course there was huge emphasis on post production using Photoshop and Lightroom. We also did a fabulous vintage printing workshop that I was absolutely fascinated with. Amongst all the genres of photography that were taught to us, photojournalism is something that I absolutely do not wish to pursue. However the genres of photography that interest me are documentary, architectural and studio. After completing the course, I realise that this experience has given me a certain direction in life and given me confidence to become a professional photographer.
