Lianne has a farming background and has photographed a number of agricultural operations around Africa. She grew up on a farm in South Africa and has since lived in Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Malawi and is familiar with Commercial farming, corporate and Small-scale farming in these regions. Lianne now lives in the Ixopo farming district in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa where she does both Commercial photography of agriculture, photography for NGO’s and Documentary photography of the farms in the KwaZulu-Natal area.
Lianne has a good general knowledge of agriculture and understands the agriculture/agribusiness market. She feels at ease in this environment and thoroughly enjoys rural Africa and photographing different farming operations in the region, especially the Smallholder farming sector around Africa.
Lianne has a good rapport with the people she is photographing and is able to help them feel at ease in front of the camera. She particularly enjoys the human aspect of agricultural photography, in particular ‘training,’ and operations that are labour intensive. On a shoot Lianne includes both directed and documentary-style photography as well as agricultural landscapes and images that give ‘context’ and that are vibrant and ‘up beat.’
Lianne values herself as as being flexible, friendly and confident when it comes to travel in Africa. She enjoys the outdoors way more than the indoors and is passionate about what she does.
She is available to travel both locally and internationally.
