Carrels - Photographer - South Africa

Mark Carrels

South Africa


I always give attention to detail, which comes from years on the job as a sub-editor and formerly a news reporter. Having worked in the electronic media and print media helps me to put emphasis on the importance of deadlines. I have also done many interviews with a variety of personalities and newsmakers. I am also able to skillfully use a camera to tell a story after hours of study and practice. I also have a growing photography portfolio.




I have a portfolio of projects I have done with a local lecturer, Pine Pienaar part-time. I have two certificates in basic digital photography with his academy and also another home study course through Intec.
