Yello!

I'M CLAIRE.

A SUPER SHORT, YOGA LOVING FOODIE WITH A BIG LAUGH, AND AN EVEN BIGGER IMAGINATION.

I DON'T TAKE LIFE TOO SERIOUSLY AND I FIND A LITTLE MAGIC IN EVERYTHING.

I grew up surrounded by the beautiful bush in Mpumalanga and made the move to Cape Town 11 years ago. This resulted in me being able to make ANY animal noise. No seriously, try me…

Anything 80’s / New Wave is my jam and if there is an animal near me, I will find it and I WILL attempt to adopt it or smuggle it home in my camera bag.

I am an artist through and through and love nothing more than life’s happy accidents. I believe in documenting life as it unfolds naturally, finding the art in the moment rather than over-curating or tampering with the authenticity.

Honestly if I had a super power, I would choose to be invisible because my most beautiful photographs that I treasure to this day were taken when nobody knew I was there. This is the way I work and am proud of my reputation as a little photo-ninja!

This is your life, your story. It is not a stage production, a manicured Instagram feed or an organised Pinterest board. It is what it is and that is unique, real, chaotic and, most importantly, It’s no body else’s, but yours.

We would be a great fit if you feel shy in front of the camera, don’t fancy all the overly posed stuff and love to have a good laugh. I don’t take life or myself too seriously and love to go with the flow while I make magic from what I see.

WHEVER THERE IS LIGHT, THERE IS MAGIC.
