For me, photography is a way of life, a job and a hobby – and the boundaries are often fluid or non-existent.

The light and form must always be there and must support the image. As a photographer, in my personal images, I work more and more with the abstract, perhaps closer to abstraction, where things become “more” and often “other” than they are.

Been a mentor for photographers from, among others, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Slovakia, France, etc.

Has taught and lectured on photography in Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Japan, Latvia, France, UK, Sweden and more.

​After a career as a professional photographer, I turned my passion back into my hobby.

After studying photography & film at the Hoger Sint-Lukasinstituut in Brussels, I worked for more than 40 years as a photographer in Houthalen-Helchteren, Belgium, specialising in portrait and reportage photography.

The passion for photography has remained and is now mainly expressed during my international travels and trips with my motorhome.

I am also closely involved in the work of the FEP, the Federation of European Professional Photographers, where I am chairman of the EP qualification jury. EP - European Photographer is a basic quality label with which the FEP endorses and recognises the minimum required professional competence of its members.

Specialising in the Polar and sub-Polar regions of the globe, my work celebrates the extreme latitudes of the Polar environment. An ambassador for the Polar Regions I gave up the corporate world to pursue my true passion for photography. You are welcome to join me on a photographic trip of a lifetime to some of the most magical destinations on this planet.

BIO

Living in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, I studied with distinction at the Australian Photography Studies College and the Australian College of Journalism. I am a fully accredited AIPP Double Master of Photography and was a member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP) until it closed its doors in late 2021. In 2011 I was selected to appear in the AIPP 'Look for the Logo' television campaign highlighting some of Australia's best photographers. In 2011, I was also appointed as Australia's first and only Moab Master Photographer and Printer by Moab and Legion Paper in the USA. In early 2012, I was honored to be appointed as a member of the esteemed Coloratti by X-Rite and was subsequently interviewed for Nik Radio in late 2012. Early in 2013, I was honored as the 2012 Outdoor Photographer of the Year in the 'Spirit of Adventure category for my photograph of Mountain Climbers in Antarctica. In 2013, 2014, and again in 2015, I was elected to the Victorian Council of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers.

In 2021 I won the Silver medal for Australia in the World Photographic Cup in the Nature category and was the overall winner in the Natural World category in the AIPP Silver Lining Awards.

My photography has taken me on extensive travels throughout Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand, North and South America, Canada, China, Europe, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Greenland, Mongolia, the Arctic, and Antarctica. I also pursue an active interest in mountain biking and wilderness trekking.

TATENDA CHIDORA
SYDAFRIKA

  • Instagram
  • Facebook

Born in Zimbabwe and based in South Africa, Tatenda Chidora is a commercial, fine art and fashion photographer whose contemporary style is representative of the global movement hailed as ‘new African photography’. He’s driven by creating a more diverse picture and inspired by the stories and faces of the African metropolis. His striking visuals, often shot from new and unexpected angles make heroes of his subjects. At the core of his practice is light; a marathon runner, he studies light from the road in the early mornings and evenings and is moved by the way it cuts curves into a face or a landscape. In turn he commands natural light or studio lighting to paint black skin luminous.

 

There’s a richness of tone in his work whether it’s shot in colour or his beloved black and white. Tatenda studied photography at the Tshwane University of Technology completing his BTech in 2015, but he remains a humble student of the medium through shooting in various genres of photography while carving out a style of his own. Working between genres keeps him nimble and versatile; he brings a fine art sensibility to his fashion photography and an editorial edge to his portraiture which champions unconventional beauty. His subjects are often people he discovers on the street and finds interesting. Tatenda has a
deep love for making portraits for its opportunity to engage with a subject. “I try not to just photograph people,” he says. “I try to connect with them.” His muse is the everyday which he endeavours to translate and elevate through his lens.

Bortsett från konstfotografi är Björn engagerad i naturvård och han är ordförande för Smart Savannahs, en organisation som arbetar med att skydda hotade vilda djur i Afrika.

Sanjay Jogia is an Internationally acclaimed, award-winning photographer who has been featured as one of the 6 Best Wedding Photographers in the World by Professional Photographer Magazine.  He has photographed some of the most luxurious weddings all across Europe, India, Africa and the United States over the past 15 years making him one of the most sought-after luxury wedding photographers in the world.

Known for his unusual creativity, Sanjay travels the world as a photographer, educator, mentor, judge and brand ambassador. He has the honour of being the only Canon UK Ambassador in the wedding genre whilst also representing the EMEA region since 2018.


Sanjay is also a Brand Ambassador for 7 other brands including Eizo Global, Canson Infintiy, Fundy Software, Tether Tools, Light & Motion, Dream Books Pro and Calibrite (formerly X-Rite), all complimentary brands that value his expertise and insights.

His wedding portrait images are a blend of a fashion and movie inspired approach.  He uses beauty lighting and posing techniques which are balanced with a sensitive, observant and almost portrait-like documentary approach for the majority of wedding images giving his wedding couples the best of both worlds which he calls Reality and Fantasy.

Sanjay is backed by his wife Roshni who both own ‘Eye Jogia Photo & Cinema’.  His work has evolved from Wedding Photography initially to Photography & Cinematography.  His genres of speciality has also expanded from Weddings to Portraits, Fashion & Automotive.  

Fellowship and Awards 

Sanjay has earned a Fellowship with British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) & Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers (SWPP) which involves a rigorous judging process of Sanjay’s printed images by a panel of existing fellows.

He has earned over 100 awards in the SWPP Annual 20x16 Print Competitions.  He is also a Master for Wedding and Portraits Photographers International (WPPI) based in Las Vegas, with over 100 WPPI awards in this popular and highly competitive forum since 2016, with numerous 1st, 2nd & 3rd placements for overall categories, including the last round of print competitions in 2022.

Sanjay has also won numerous awards at the annual British Photography Awards, and Photography World Cup competitions proudly representing Team GB.  

Chairperson at the largest Print Competitions in the World 

He has been elevated from Judge to Chairperson for the SWPP & WPPI Annual print competitions with his discerning eye and ability to assimilate and translate every aspect of an image from concept, narrative, technical to print.  This has also established Sanjay as an industry expert in high end printing from small to large format, to the extent that he is approached by peers to print their images for clients and competitions.

Teaching and Presenting to a global audience 

Sanjay has been invited to teach and present globally – he loves to teach and inspire that ‘Eureka’ moment with people whether it’s at one of his own workshops, one-on-one training, or at the various seminars and conventions that he is invited to speak globally.  He was invited to speak for Canon CEE in Bucharest, Romania for 500 photographers which was also on National TV and Radio.  He has been presenting for Canon since he became Ambassador in 2018.

Sanjay has also been as well as numerous other publications to share inspiration, technical expertise, and his extensive experience.

He feels a duty to help protect, shape and guide the future of our industry across all age groups. This passion to guide and serve has been exhibited at his many seminars for Canon for example since 2017, and more recently with the Canon Young Peoples Programme (YPP) which has led him to initiate conversations with the Change Foundation to explore ways to reach young people all over the country to affect positive change.

Sanjay actively also represented the British Wedding and Events Industry with his participation in the UK Government Taskforce for Weddings during the 2020 & 2021 lockdowns in two of the 8 Working Groups to gain government support in the wake of the Global Pandemic following a year of industry wide neglect.

Formative Years

Sanjay’s love of photography started at school with his father’s Canon AE-1 35mm film SLR camera and grew up within a culture of photography while his dad worked at the local Kodak factory for 35 years (where Sanjay also worked as a student actually manufacturing 35mm film).

A combination of this constant photocentric environment and his own creative curiosity meant that he is self-taught and began developing his own style and approach from a young age. 


He studied Architecture at the University of Bath in England all the while combining his love of photography with his architectural presentation techniques.  Having qualified as an Architect, Sanjay believes strongly that there are many parallels between his Photography his Architectural training - for example: Light, composition, conceptualisation, space, aesthetics, surface, texture creativity are all common elements to both.
