Chanelle worked as a high-end Photoshop retoucher in top ad agencies around London and freelanced for five years for one of the world's most famous fashion photographers, Mario Testino. She was recently featured in Forbes!
When I’m not busy working on your images you can catch me checking out the surf report online and suiting up for some epic barrels or dusting the cobwebs off my mountain bike and taking our daughter for a joy-ride around J Bay.
I enjoy cooking up a storm in the kitchen and firing up the braai.
To relax you'll find me reading a good crime novel.
A few random facts about me: I spent 5 years in the South African Airforce. I worked in IT at companies like IBM and Samsung in the UK before moving to the Caribbean as a full time photographer. My favourite genre of music is heavy metal. The first concert I attended as a grom was Iron Maiden.
"I believe in working smarter not harder, I love supporting women in the wedding industry through private one-on-one business coaching"
I believe that what you focus on manifests. I enjoy yoga, horse riding, and beachcombing for shells with my daughter, Saharah.
Are you an entrepreneur?
I help women like you in the wedding and photography industry build a personal brand, market yourself and add workshops or coaching as an additional income stream to your business.
My background is in graphic design and retouching. I worked at Top 10 Ad Agencies in London as well as for world famous photographer, Mario Testino.
We ran a successful photography business in the UK for 8 years and photographed weddings around the world including many exotic locations such as Bali, Santorini, and Morocco. 90% of our weddings were published in glossy wedding magazines, and I was commissioned by You & Your Wedding Magazine to shoot the back fashion pages.
A warmer climate was calling, and a big move across the pond led us to work for a studio in The Turks & Caicos in the Carribean for 2.5 years where our daughter was born.
BECOMING A MOM CHANGED EVERYTHING!
I hired a high-level business coach, launched a Social Media Marketing company and moved back home to South Africa in early 2015.
I now use my 16 years of experience in design, marketing, branding and business to coach women from around the world on how they can create their version of an extraordinary life through entrepreneurship.
