My favorite shoots are styled collaboration shoots bringing together different products and brands, that mostly include setting a table!
I love styling and creating photography content for chefs, wine farms, restaurants, creative brands and people.
An honors degree in theatre & stage design, working as a journalist (where I began my photography career), photographing weddings and families, and more recently food, is the back story to my photography style.
I am also co-owner of a South-African brand Samesyn, a fabric linen range inspired by food photography.
Hi, I’m Lindy and you are welcome here. I am a food & lifestyle photographer and creative at heart. I love creating and am a little obsessed with natural fibres and fabrics! I have always been fascinated by fibre art and love developing functional art pieces, so adding products to my brand - has been a full circle moment for me. All designs are inspired by alternative photography processes (including eco-printing a cyanotypes). Products are made into functional art, celebrating natural fabrics, made by hand and printed and sewn locally in South-Africa.
CYANOTYPES - ALSO KNOW AS BLUE PRINTS. A CYANOTYPE IS A CONTACT PRINT MADE BY EXPOSING UV REACTIVE CHEMICALS TO SUNLIGHT. ALLOWING CHANCE AND WEATHER TO BE PART OF THE PROCESS IS WHERE THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE LIES. A COMBINATION OF ART, NATURE AND SCIENCE!
ECO-PRINTING IS THE PROCESS WHERE COLOURS AND SHAPES OF LEAVES OR OTHER NATURAL PLANT MATERIAL ARE TRANSFERRED ONTO PAPER OR FABRIC.
