Biography

I was born in 1964 in Harrismith, South Africa where I developed a keen interest in photography during my schooling years. I completed two years compulsory army conscription before studying photography for four years at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, passing cum laude. I started my academic career at the Vaal University of Technology in 1989 developing the audio-visual slide-tape component in the photography department. I have been teaching undergraduate and co-supervised some post-graduate​ courses at this institution for the past 28 years. I was promoted to senior lecturer three years later and then to acting associate director. During this time, I managed the Photography, Graphic Design and Multimedia sections. Academic qualifications up to Doctors level in Photography and Multimedia were successfully initiated during the same period. The institution then restructured around the University of Technology model necessitating an amalgamation within the visual arts and design environment. The current department is now known as Visual Arts and Design. My current research interest is in the philosophy of educational teaching and learning, especially that of creative photography and media practice.
