I recently completed the Mid-level course at Through The Lens Collective and had the opportunity to work one on one with Michelle Harris and Michelle Loukidis.
This course has crafted me more holistically as a photographer and somehow made me become aware of myself and my surroundings. I've not only gained a better understanding of the technical aspects of photography, but now I'm also able tounderstand the language and narrative around photography in a broader context. With continuous support from my facilitators, I managed to broaden the scope of ideas I'm exploring with my work.
Being at TTL for the Mid- Level Course has been quite a good experience, particularly because of the kind of work that I was assigned with. Exploring different genres has been the highlight because I always strive to go broad in exploring different genres of photography so that I learn how to go about each one of those I come across. Working alongside my fellow classmates was cool because I had the chance to be inspired by different styles of photography from each individual and also gain more knowledge about my own style.

My experience at Through The Lens Collective was a great one. I was afforded the freedom to play around and experiment with my work. I was allowed to be as expressive as I could with my work and all parts of my expression were welcomed.
I am honoured to be mentored by TTL, thank you for the great skills and knowledge you’ve imparted to me. Last year in 2021 I opened ‘’Inhlambululo’’ my debut solo show at the Springs Art Gallery in collaboration with Through The Lens Collective and the City of Ekurhuleni. I deeply appreciate Through The Lens Collective and value everything I have learnt.
