kiekie:kit


Below the owner of kiekie:kit, tells us a bit about herself and her business:

"My name is Schantel van der Merwe, and I live in the Johannesburg South Africa. I've been married for 9 years. And I've been a photographer for more than 9 years."

Since I started shooting I’ve imagined the perfect bag that would carry all the necessities a photographer would want. Imagine my excitement when I discovered Kelly Moore bags and all the other fantastic bag brands we offer. I immediately ordered myself one from the U.S. Unfortunately the ordering process was a long and expensive process, so I decided to import these awesome bags and make it more accessible to the South African photography market.

I want to encourage the photographers out there and give them more variety than what the South African market has to offer. With the Kelly Moore bags photographers have the opportunity where they can change a lens at a moment's notice without feeling the pressure of having the client wait. Trust me...I've been there. With more options you have more freedom and with more freedom you have more time to focus on your photography.

I hope you enjoy the products that we have to offer and that they really make your job more fun!"


We look forward to giving away one camera bag and one camera strap from kiekie:kit. If you are photographer, please remember to vote for our 2016 participants to stand a chance to win one of these prizes!

Soif de Vivre


The creative industry has always been fascinating to me and I knew from a very young age that one day I would also be successful and creating wonderful images. I’d like to think of myself as an Image Creator rather than a photographer. A photographer simply takes pictures. Every image I take is planned carefully, posed to perfection and retouched to ensure that I deliver the best work.

After high school I studied BA Visual Communication and majored in both Photography and Illustration. Throughout the course of my studies, I spent my weekends assisting and second shooting for multiple great photographers. Not only did this teach me about running a business, but also how to work with different types of people. I am forever grateful for the photographers that gave me the chance to learn from them, and will always strive to make them proud.

As a young creative entering the very daunting world of professionalism, I am excited to make my mark on the industry. I’ve had the best lecturers and mentors that guided me into becoming a hard working and determined Image Creator.

I am extremely excited for this journey to take me places, to be able to share stories of friends and to showcase beautiful imagery to the world.

Soif de Vivre will be giving away an engagment session for one lucky voter, during our voting period in July 2016.
