Lianne is a freelance photographer based in Ixopo, KZN, South Africa. Her work focuses on agriculture and commerce.
A passion for photography and storytelling
Lianne’s passion for photography was born out of her interest in the ‘human story’ when she lived in Mozambique and Malawi for a number of years. The camera became an integral part of storytelling and of exploring and documenting the human experience in these regions.
7 years ago she returned to her family farm in South Africa and has been photographing agriculture ever since. Through agricultural photography, Lianne has married her extensive exposure to and experience of various agricultural industries in Southern Africa and her interest in the human story. Her agricultural work particularly focuses on the human element and on stories of growth, progress and self empowerment. Lianne has photographed agriculture for both commercial and NPO organisations throughout Southern Africa and as far as Senegal.
Before Lianne became a photographer, she worked in the hospitality industry both locally and internationally. She worked in hotels and restaurants for a number of years before studying to become a chef. Lianne has used her experience and knowledge of the hospitality and food industry with the commercial photography she does for clients, which includes interiors, food, health and wellness, landscapes, lifestyle and services.
Lianne’s exposure and experience to the different industries has been invaluable in the way of understanding her clients needs and working together to create content that inspires support and growth.
