Presented by

Hannie du Plessis, people and fine art photographer. She is a natural teacher and loves travelling. Throughout her travels, she has learned that using only her smartphone’s camera gives her the freedom to enjoy the experience and at the same time capture her memories with minimal equipment. Less is more. Her philosophy about photography is the skill of consideration. What you leave out is just as important as what you invite in.
