Moments and memories frozen in time....


This is likely the one page where I stumble.
What does one say about oneself and what words do you use to describe yourself?  Words are often inadequate when I see images, be it in colour or black and white......
Francois Cloete - a photographer, an avid learner and someone who can get lost in a museum, a street or the bush.  I am fortunate that I have a space where I can get creative with light, some very patient models I have been fortunate to work with and creative friends and friends who are critical and honest enough to share their views and criticism.
A few years ago I was asked do you have a  distinct style.  I still do not know that answer and would leave it to the viewer to decide....  I do like the way that I can use shade, darkness and light in different ways.  A mentor whom I have been following and learning from said one need to be able to see the light to understand the light.  My quest is to try and record the light that I is not always easy but a journey that is enjoyable.
Photography is a passion for me,  it affords one the opportunity to play with light, record moments and memories and offers a creative outlet.  Being able to see the world through a viewfinder offers perspective and an escape.
You are also most welcome to contact me for any collaboration, workshops in studio work or photography and lessons in Photoshop.
