About me

As far back as I can remember I always had a camera in my hand.

There was something so magical about photos, stories unfolded before my eyes as I flipped through old family albums. The fact that you could capture a moment in time is how my love of photography began.

It wasn’t until much later, after university and working in Marketing and graphic design that I had the opportunity to own my very first professional camera – it was love at first site! 

For the first time when I looked through the lens, I saw details I had never noticed before, I started to become more involved and interested in the process and the creation of a photograph.

From that moment I began to spend all my free time out and about with my camera, taking photos of everything and day dreaming that photography could be more than a hobby.

It wasn’t long before people who had seen my photos began to ask me to take professional shots for them. These ranged from weddings to products and I realised I was doing exactly what I was meant to. I officially started working as a freelance photographer and graphic design artist in 2010 under my brand divajo and never looked back.

When a client books a shoot with me, collaboration and team work is vital to my process as this helps me achieve the results my clients are looking for and it helps me grow as a photographer.

Most importantly, I like to have fun and make my shoots an enjoyable experience for all those participating in front and behind the lens. At the end of the day the biggest reward I receive is knowing that I had some part to play in immortalizing a moment in time and putting a smile on my clients face when they see their photos for the first time.

It’s all about capturing a moment!
