About Me

profile

Owner – Photographer – Graphic Designer

Im a Johannesburg, South African based photographer who I grew up as a farm boy on a small sheep farm just half an hour outside of Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. I studied Electronics at a Technical High School in East London until 1997 when I matriculated with an N3 Technika Electrical Equivalent. I then Studied Electronic Origination at the Southern African Printing College in 1998 and Graduated with distinction. I qualified as a Desktop Publisher in the Lithographic Printing industry where I continued to work for over 11years. Between all of that, I served a 2 year proselyting mission for my church in Scotland which added a vast number of skills and personal attributes to my experience. In 2005 I received my Diploma of Photography through The Photography Institute and by 2011 I established TGVphoto and was working full time as a Professional Photographer and Graphic Designer while still offering Print Rep-ping too.

My Philosophy

All of my life experiences are what make TGVphoto the partner of choice in your creative photography and design needs. From growing up, untainted from the world, as a humble farm boy in the Eastern Cape, to my travels overseas as a proselyting missionary for 2yrs, I learned deep rooted principles and values that have guided every action and decision in my life. Add to this, over 11yrs of work experience in the Lithographic printing industry and almost a

decade working as a self employed professional photographer and Ive learned the ethics and value of a what constitutes a great employee. Due to these influences, I offer each client an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay. I am driven by integrity, exceptional product quality and an emphasis on customer service for all of my clients, both corporate and private alike.


When it comes to investments… “Don’t sacrifice what you want most for what you want now”
