Hi there, I’m Toni, the face behind the camera at Two Continents.
"I'm looking for the unexpected. I'm looking for things I've never seen before."
– Robert Mapplethorpe
I love that quote. That’s pretty much me behind the lens in a sentence.If you’re interested though, here’s a little more…
I was born and bred in Johannesburg, South Africa – and quite frankly never really imagined living anywhere else. Meeting my husband Fred, changed that, when we moved for his new job position right after we got married.Needless to say, my mother was not a fan. Of the move. My husband she’s forgiven ;)
Living for close on 3 years in Munich was an incredible and educational experience. It gave me New Perspectives. Lots of travel. Itchy feet for life. An unnatural love for Nutella. And after a lot of travel photography with my husband, a burning desire to do more with my love of taking pictures.When work brought Fred back to his home in Illinois, USA, I came determined to do more with that passion - and Two Continents was born. We’ve been settled in Morton, IL for about two years now, although I get back “home” to South Africa as often as possible.
I serve both the USA and South Africa, taking bookings for both regions, although I’m a “Have Camera, Will Travel” kinda girl, so I’ll go pretty much anywhere you are!
I don’t have one particular style of photography. I’m a creative person, who is always looking for the unusual, the unique, and the unseen in the things. I’m constantly drawing inspiration from everything around me, and love coming up with new and different concepts. No matter the subject or style though, I enjoy relaxed, fun shoots, where the laughs come easily; photographing people in a way that captures who they are, and aspire to be.
I’d love to help you capture and create some amazing moments! Let me know what inspires you!
