First and foremost I am a father and husband to an amazing family with Collin & Robyn, and our cats and dog. I have a magnetic draw to water, I always have to take a dive in or swim, even in cold temperatures. I have never been one to want to stay within the lines. Being self taught in photography has allowed me the opportunity to create photos that have a distinct style. Making use of objects in and out of focus, the use of layering light, and changing the traditional perspective has created photography that will captivate the audience. Whether I am creating an environmental portrait, product photography or editorial, I am always looking to create an image that is surprising and captivating.
I am South African born, and moved to the US in 1987. Growing up with an entrepreneurial mother I knew I would own my own business. I started Onion Studio in 2007 with my wife and photographer Robyn Buyskes. We have won awards for our wedding and commercial photography and video. I am always excited and proud when in conversations and people say “I have heard of you, and love your work". We collaborate everyday with small businesses, ad agencies, and corporations to create photos and video to market business. I could not ask for a more rewarding and exciting career. And I’m looking forward to helping you and your business stand out.
