Brett Blignaut has a three-year diploma in videography but has always preferred taking photographs. He has actively engaged in the photography industry and is an Adobe Photoshop Associate. He stays up to date with current trends, lighting effects as well as post-production and retouching techniques through online groups and tutorials. He has experience taking swimwear, lifestyle and fitness/activewear photos for private and commercial clients. His passion for photography is evident in the enthusiasm that he feels whenever he picks up his camera.
I love being outdoors, which is one of the big reasons most of my work is on location. On the flip side of that I also love to try new things, and experiment with lighting in studio. I also get a bit of a kick out of the "Oh my gosh!" moment when clients see their finished photos.
It's probably going to be swimwear, because I get to spend time outdoors, on the beach when not many people are around. It really beats sitting in an office. I also love travelling, so I shoot landscapes and wildlife any opportunity I get.
Just a few publication in online magazines, a cover for a local magazine in Durban, and an editorial for a lifestyle magazine in Durban.
If you told me 10 years ago that I'd be a swimwear photographer, I would have laughed at you.
