Kyle’s story: Starting in March 2010, I have spent the last year and a half travelling through Africa, the middle east and Europe. I had just finished a sound design course at AFDA film school, got the degree and decided it was time to experience life outside of Cape Town. During my studies I played in a band, and found myself mixed up in band photography, something which started happening more and more frequently. I started out with a little point and shoot camera, which I had a lot of fun with.
All went well and I started doing cover shoots, designed posters and covered events. I ended up doing nightlife photography, and made some cash taking photos around the Cape Town club scene. By the end of all this I had managed to save up enough ZAR to get myself the 5D Mark|| and thats how it all started. Soon after, I set off on my adventures armed with my Canon, and my affair with landscape and portraits just happened very naturally as I crossed the border from one country to the next. Learning a bit more eachtime, defining (and refining) my style as I went.
