Biographical Info
Life is a precious gift from God. A fleeting miracle. Flashing by way too fast. Every so often we have the privilege of experiencing a special moment. One that is out of the ordinary. That we wished time would slow down for… just a little. But everyday life too has its moments of awe – a new life, a first step, a new love – when we yearn to stay in the moment… just for a while. We love to help you treasure those moments. To help you remember. To take you back to that time. A husband and wife team, Waldo and Marti-Mari, we are both very passionate about photography. Something we share and have a growing love for. And although we both love it, we definitely each have a very unique approach to it. We each have an unique interest in it. We are probably as different as two people can be. And it shows. But that is one of the things that makes us such a good team when it comes to our photography. We see the world very differently. We experience it differently. We view it differently. And as a result the same scene is captured from different, but complementary perspectives. About the name... “Living Light” is both a play on words and the way that we hope to approach life. Light is probably the single most important factor when it comes to photography. It is the one thing that it all revolves around. The one thing that you absolutely cannot do without. We are also called to be the light the world. And photography is possibly one of the most tangible ways of doing that. Of capturing. And giving. And showing love. Becoming first time parents ourselves in 2015 - I (Marti-Mari) have a special interest in newborn photography and have recently been focusing on newborn, child and family photography. Although it has been a growing passion for years, it has taken me nearly as long to take the leap to a more serious venture into photography. Having completed a BSc. degree in Architecture, a B. Consumer Science degree in Housing and a postgraduate diploma in Marketing and Advertising Communications Management, I have always been a creative. An artist at heart – expressing myself in images and words. From the school girl whose favourite subject was art, photography was a natural progression. During my time as a student at Stellenbosch University, I explored my interest in photography by completing a Photography diploma course at Boland College. During my Architecture studies at the University of Pretoria, black and white film photography and development was part of the curriculum for one of my subjects. In the interim I have been busy with a host of other things. But the photography spark was once again ignited for me, when Waldo and I completed Photography and Lightroom courses together.
