The short version …

Hello. This is me. Marina. I am a graphic designer and photographer.
I am creative, professional, hardworking, committed and extremely proud of my amiable work ethic. I enjoy fresh challenges, fruit juice in summer, tea in winter and chocolate all year round!

The slightly longer version…

I am a graphic designer and photographer, and passionate about both of these arts. I discovered photography at a very young age and took it on as an extra subject in high school. I fell in love with the process of developing film and printing photographs in the darkroom. My favourite part of the entire process was seeing the image magically appear out of nowhere. Wow. What a proud moment!

In today’s digital age, anyone can take a photograph. It only becomes an art form when you capture real, natural moments, as they occur. I provide beautiful keepsakes, which you can preserve forever by hanging them up on your wall, or display in a beautiful album. After all, what is the point of a photograph if you cannot see it?

We are all born with different talents, but I believe education is still important. I graduated in 2005 from the University of Johannesburg with a Bachelor of Technology (BTech) in Graphic Design. The company I worked for focused on website development. I designed corporate websites, investor relations websites and annual reports. After seven years I started my own design business, focusing on website design as well as all forms of print designs, such as magazines and brochures. Three years later I decided to incorporate photography as an additional service.

So, I invite you to get in touch with me, let us have tea and talk about happy things! It will be an honour for me to capture your most precious moments!
