Sivu Matsiliza first got his hands on a camera when he was put on “photo duty” at his cousin’s 21st birthday. He quickly found that he enjoyed capturing special moments and with some practice also exploring new techniques and possibilities. What drives this eager young photographer is capturing a second in a person’s life knowing that all they have left is the photo that you took.
He’s currently working on a higher certificate in photography at Vega School of Brand Leadership and it is here that he learned more about the photographic technique called “painting with light”. After doing some research, he came across photographer Eric Pare’s work which inspired him to generate a few workable ideas.
