Hello there! Welcome and thanks for stopping by, I’m Moira – a natural light photographer situated in Sedgefield, a picturesque town in the breathtaking Western Cape of South Africa.
David Young once said
“It is the photographing of ordinary things, in extraordinary light, which results in extraordinary photographs”
Extraordinary photographs are what I aspire to.
The image you see below, is the only photograph I have of myself and my beloved childhood pet, Patches: a black and white mongrel of questionable lineage. Patches and I were joined at the hip, he was my best friend, confidante, comforter and soulmate and it makes me sad to think that this is the only tangible memory I have of him – one measly photograph that doesn’t reflect his spirit or show his bouncy personality, adorable face and comical expressions. That is why…
… my goal, each time I lift the camera to my face and look through its lens, is to find the light within my subject, to reveal their beautiful essence through my images and create an emotive and compelling piece of personalised art. Art that has soul.
