Thys Visser, Cape Town Member Since December 2011 Artist Statement I started with film photography in the 1980's with a Canon AE-1 Program SLR, alongside with some older cameras (Mamiya, Kodak, etc) my father owned.
Somewhere along the way I finally went digital around 2003, with a P&S and later on a DSLR. Now I am doing photography just for the fun of it - not competing with anyone at all.
I like the outdoors in that I try to travel around, or walk outside, or do some mountain bike bicycling, with my camera going along with me all the time! Am lucky to be in the best place in the world: Stellenbosch (South Africa), known as the "heart of the wine lands" which offers lots of excellent photography opportunities!
