As owner/photographer for Sciencelens, I focus on photographing all aspects of science and industry, from technical laboratory images to environmental photography to coverage of industry-related events and awards functions. The experience gained from years of working with scientists, engineers and technologists has been invaluable in enabling me to create images that effectively support the communication of science and technology.

I have an academic and practical background in the sciences, having studied mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer science at university, and working for more than a decade at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), a leading research institute in South Africa.

In 2005, I decided to turn my passion for photography into a career, and formalised my photographic training through the South African National College of Photography.

With my combined background in science and photography, I hope to make a meaningful contribution to the field of visual science communication. I enjoy working with scientists and technologists, I’m fascinated by the field, visually and conceptually, and I see it as a challenge to use photography to visually communicate science.
